Hookem.com asked Texas fans to “Sound Off” on our Facebook page after after another heartbreaking overtime loss, this time at the hands of Oklahoma State.
As you can imagine, we got plenty of responses from informed and passionate fans who were devastated when Sam Ehlinger threw a game-ending interception in the 13-10 loss. Here’s a sample of some popular responses. They have been edited for space and clarity.
Justin Landerman: Young guys are going to make mistakes. Unfortunately this one was pretty big. Even though this season is pretty much over, I am feeling pretty optimistic about these next few seasons. Fans are suffering but just think about how these players are feeling. We need to stand beside them and show them we are still here for them rather than bashing a young team. Longhorn fan till the day I die! #hookem
Charles Riese: Just a reminder that Charlie Strong is coaching a top 20 team this season. But let’s hear it for another moral victory of coming so close to another upset.
Steve Webb: Our defense just held the No. 1 offense to one touchdown and two field goals, one in overtime. Future looks very good for our young quarterback as well.
Terry Whitmire: Hang in there everybody! It will get better. The light at the end of the tunnel is shining bright! Let Herman get a couple of top 3 recruiting classes in and see what happens. Damn, he hasn’t even coached a season yet and people expect him to field a playoff team this year. The play calling will make sense when he gets the players he needs. Let him build a foundation for this program. Nick Saban’s first year at Alabama was a lot like what Herman is going through with Texas this year. Give him time!
Colton Kehlenbeck: I’m tired of bad beats. I love my team but I feel like its an abusive relationship where they promise it will get better each year, but all I’m holding onto is memories. Shaking my head. Maybe next year.
