Texas players react on Twitter to beating Notre Dame

Posted September 7th, 2016


Seemingly everyone had something to say or post on social media after Texas beat Notre Dame in double overtime on Sunday, and the players who experienced it were no different.

From the time the Longhorns got back to their phones following the win, they’ve been tweeting and re-tweeting everything related to Sunday’s game. Here’s what they’ve been saying:

And of course…

One of the players who got the most buzz on social media after the game was Armanti Foreman, who landed the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays for his ridiculous catch in the corner of the end zone during the first quarter.


It’s always fun to see a college kid react to seeing himself in the Top 10 for the first time.

There were also several solid entries from the inspirational/heartwarming category, including proof that Matthew McConaughey’s speech worked.



And then of course there were the Tweets directed at John Burt, who turned things around after his dropped pass in the first quarter and made one of the plays of the game when he caught a 72-yard touchdown pass from Shane Buechele.

Here’s a bonus from former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, who like many others was impressed by Burt’s speed.

Even with all the publicity, it seems like Texas coach Charlie Strong has kept his players from buying into the hype. When it came to the praise he was receiving on social media, Longhorns defensive back Kris Boyd kept things in perspective.

If Texas keeps playing like it did Sunday, those notifications are going to be busy for a while.
