The Texas football season came to a close Friday with a 31-9 loss to TCU. The defeat means that the Longhorns will not play in a bowl game for the second-straight season, and likely ended hopes of retaining Charlie Strong as head coach.
Texas finished the season at 5-7.
Nine points marked the lowest point total for Texas this season, and the 22-point margin was the largest of any of the seven losses.
Here’s what Texas fans were saying on social media about the loss.
I know Charlie Strong cares about The University of Texas… I see it on his face and I hear it in his words. #HookEm

If Charlie Strong isn't a good fit for UT, it's not because of him. We are the ones with the problem. #HookEm

Love Charlie Strong. Love the man. Extremely decent man. Not a look at me type of dude. Unfortunately he had to win. #hookem

Charlie Strong is a nice guy and he might be a good coach. But it just hasn't worked here. That's the bottom line… 🏈🤘🏻#HookEm
