Social reaction: Texas fans let their emotions flow after season-opening loss to Maryland

Posted September 1st, 2018


Well, what did you expect?

Texas lost 34-29 to Maryland in a game that included plenty of déjà vu moments from last year’s season opener against the Terrapins. After clawing back from a 24-7 first-half deficit, the Longhorns turned the ball over on each of their final three possessions to seal the loss.

Fans had plenty to say, and an 86-minute weather delay that stretched the game to nearly six hours didn’t help the mood. Ride the roller coaster in reverse, starting with postgame reactions and all the way back to the effervescent time that preceded the new season.


So far, it sure  looks a lot like last season.
