Golden: Will the Horns make it to a bowl game this year?

Posted November 10th, 2015

In today’s Golden’s Nuggets, Cedric touches on the Missouri football team and the success some Longhorns had in the NFL over the weekend. Here’s what he had to say on if UT will go bowling this year:

“If Texas misses out on a bowl game, the underclassmen can all look at one another and say, “No biggie. We’ll be back next year.” Not so for the seniors.

I don’t see it…..Had Texas won one of those two close ones against Cal or Oklahoma State, it might very well be sitting at 5-4 with a much more realistic chance of making it to a bowl game.

As it stands, good program representers like Jackson and Johnathan Gray will be home for the holidays.

It’s not my intention to be a dream killer, but the idea of Texas winning two of the next three games seems remote at best, given the competition and this team’s penchant for not showing up in true road games.”
