When Texas got crushed 38-3 at Notre Dame on Sept. 5, it was difficult to imagine the Longhorns could overcome any farther this season.
Oh, did they: Texas went down 30-0 before the end of the first quarter at TCU on Saturday and eventually lost 50-7 to fall to 1-4 overall and 0-2 in the Big 12.
Texas compounded the damage with a different special teams gaffe.
12, Texas came within an extra point of completing a 21-point comeback against Cal.
A Texas player retweeted a transport request at halftime, and Boykin didn’t play a snap in the fourth quarter.
Given, Texas could prove to be one of the worst teams in the Big 12.
Texas fans optimistic for incremental improvement under Strong this season might need to recalibrate expectations.
