It was great effort from our beloved Longhorns and they showed what they can do when they finish ball games. 4-5 is where Texas sits after defeating Texas Tech, 34-13, in Lubbock in front of almost 61,000 fans. You've got to admire that because 57,000 were screaming for the Red Raiders.
The Tech win praised, injury update, Harris' turnaround, Mykkele's contacts, and looking forward to West Virginia. The Notes and Quotes from Texas coach Charlie Strong's Mandatory Monday press conference.
I’ve always tried to avoid the word ‘fair’ during the upbringing of my children. Using words like 'work', 'equitable', and 'deserve' may not be very different but I want my kids to know that life is not ‘fair’. I believe that what they do in those times of struggle and inequity will determine, in large part, how successful they are in life regardless of how they define success.
Texas and head coach Charlie Strong needed a win in the worst way. Thank God for Texas Tech. Out of all the times Texas has beaten its conference neighbors in West Texas, the Longhorns had never won on November 1st versus Tech (0-3). Mission accomplished.
Some high quality prognostication from the staff at Inside Texas in this week's Pressbox from Lubbock. We predict the UT/Tech outcome, TV appearances between Strong and Kingsbury, and our Upset pick of the Week.
Inside Texas? More like Inside Florida after Strong and the UT staff hands out offers in the Sunshine State. We talk tons of recruiting, Strong's Florida coaching ties, a Texas commit looking at A&M, and an A&M commit looking at Texas, plus the other 2014 hoops recruit. All in the Scoop.
