TCU 50, Texas 7: Horns won the coin toss and it was downhill from there

FORT WORTH — Administrators always know to schedule homecoming against bad teams. Turns out TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte was spot on by picking Texas. The fourth-ranked Horned Frogs scored early, often and needed only 15 minutes to secure what became a 50-7 victory on Saturday at Amon Carter Stadium. It was the most points TCU has ever scored in the series that dates back to 1897, and it was two points shy of becoming one of the top 10 losses in UT history. Texas fans, now trying to stomach a 1-4 record, probably wonder the same thing coach Charlie Strong did: How could a team that looked so close in the losses against California and Oklahoma State look so bad? This was easily the most embarrassing debacle in Strong’s 18-game tenure, and there are now several to choose from. It was the seventh time during that … Read more

Heading for a long day If someone was to come up with a list of the most irreplaceable players on Texas, Daje Johnson would be near the top, maybe even first overall. Read More

There’s nothing special about Texas’ special teams

FORT WORTH — Texas tight ends coach Jeff Traylor is listed as the team’s special teams coach. In reality, the duties get divvied up among the entire coaching staff, so the ultimate responsibility belongs to the head coach. Charlie Strong’s special teams are awful. Texas had a series of mistakes … Read More

Once a pushover, TCU now dominating series with Texas

FORT WORTH — For the first time since 1958-59, TCU has beaten Texas in consecutive football seasons. Don’t ask Gary Patterson for details. He wasn’t around the last time it happened. “I was not born yet,” the TCU coach said. “I just want you to understand. I was born in ’60. That’s old enough, even though I don’t feel old.” Here’s something that does feel old: Texas losing. And not only losing, but n Read More

Golden: It’s about to get worse after Cowtown Beatdown to Frogs

FORT WORTH — Texas Fright. The Horns are scary bad. If you thought Saturday was a long day for the Longhorns, try this on for size: Texas still hasn’t played Oklahoma, Texas Tech or  Baylor. Shield your eyes, Texas fan. This is about to get worse. Much worse. The Longhorns … Read More

Bohls: Strong is losing games, but is he losing his players too?

FORT WORTH — Texas really may be sinking to new lows. The Longhorns were bludgeoned in a soul-crushing, 50-7 loss to one of the best college football teams in the country on Saturday. They gave up more than 600 yards of offense to powerful, fourth-ranked TCU, were shut out for … Read More

Texas-TCU notebook: Game plan turned fuzzy after Daje Johnson’s early head injury

FORT WORTH — Almost immediately, TCU took off the head of Texas’ offense. Daje Johnson, the Longhorns’ most dynamic playmaker, made nary an impact in Saturday’s loss after he suffered a head injury on the opening drive. He did not return and apparently watched his team’s embarrassing … Read More

Texas vs. TCU: Third and Longhorns

WHY TEXAS (1-4, 0-2) LOST: The easiest, most honest reason? The fourth-ranked Horned Frogs are simply at another level than the Longhorns’. For the second straight game, Jerrod Heard was held in check — 71 total yards, a far cry from his record-breaking night vs. Rice — and Tyrone Swoopes … Read More

Texas vs. TCU: Horns up, Horns down

HORNS UP Are you kidding? Finding something positive Longhorns-wise is akin to asking for a prime rib platter at Veggie Heaven. OK, let’s see. The Horns avoided getting shut out for the second time in Strong’s tenure. There was that. On a woeful day for the offense, running back D’Onta … Read More

TCU 50, Texas 7: The expanded boxscore

FIRST QUARTER TCU 30, Texas 7 —  In a word: pathetic. Texas allowed four passing touchdowns and a safety on Kyle Ashby’s deep snap out of the end zone. As feared, the secondary couldn’t handle Josh Docston who jumped over good coverage by Holton Hill to pull in one … Read More

Worst start That’s a joke, right? TCU’s 30-0 lead after just 15 minutes marked the worst quarter in school history since Houston put up 31 points on the Longhorns in the fourth quarter of a 60-40 win in 1987. Best play Take your pick between Horned Frogs receiver Josh Doctson’s … Read More
