The Longhorns really could use a win against Oklahoma State

The game tips in Austin on Saturday at 1 p.m. CT, and airs on the Longhorn Network. The Texas Longhorns punched themselves in their primary sex organs on Wednesday, suffering a tough and harmful loss at the Kansas State Wildcats in a game where a somewhat competent offensive performance could have delivered a win. Adding insult to injury, an ice storm in Kansas delayed the Texas return flight home. The final hit came Friday morning when Eric Davis’ name turned up in a leaked document from the FBI’s investigation into various payments that go on in college basketball. But life goes on,...
