The Texas Longhorns are 4-3 after blowing an 11-point lead at home to Oklahoma State, 32-24.
Against the OSU, the Longhorns led 24-13 early in the second half after a 38-yard touchdown run by Bijian Robinson.
But that was it. The Cowboys (6-0) scored the next 19 points to stun the DKR Texas Memorial Stadium crowd in Austin.
As Wescott Eberts of fan site Burnt Orange Nation pointed out on social media, the loss came in front of some of the top high school recruits in the nation on hand to see the Horns program up close, including Arch Manning, the highest-rated quarterback recruit in the country for the Class of 2023. He’s the nephew of former NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning.
One pretty wild thing that’s stuck with Texas over the last decade: these consistently embarrassing defenses allow new DC’s to have the longest leash in CFB. If you suck at your job, you get fired. Unless you work for Texas, then you just get to keep sucking at your job.

I think the greatest insult to the Texas Longhorns is that Mike Gundy was just referred to as “a brilliant strategist.”
