Inside the Numbers: Self-inflicted wounds once again cost Texas

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports On the surface, the Longhorns played well enough to win, but couldn’t manage to get out of their own way in crunch time. With the loss to the Iowa State Cyclones, the Texas Longhorns saw their hopes of a conference championship come to a close for the season, marking yet another disappointing run for the Longhorns. Tom Herman’s Longhorns were once again unable to come away with a win in a close game, their third one-score loss of the season and No. 13 in the four years under Herman. As with all of these games, it seems like Texas was...

Texas falls from AP Top 25 following loss to Iowa State

Texas sophomore C Will Baker entering NCAA Transfer Portal

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports The former Austin Westlake star is transferring from the program in search of a more meaningful role.

Questionable game-management decisions sink No. 17 Texas against No. 13 Iowa State in 23-20 loss

Questionable game-management decisions sink No. 17 Texas against No. 13 Iowa State in 23-20 loss

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports In Sam Ehlinger’s final home game, Tom Herman let him down during a heartbreaking day that may end Herman’s time at Texas. Sam Ehlinger was all alone once again. On the sideline of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, the senior quarterback was left despondent after he watched junior kicker Cameron Dicker miss a 57-yard field goal as time expired and his home career ended with the No. 17 Texas Longhorns falling to the No. 13 Iowa State Cyclones in a 23-20 loss. On Twitter, Colin Cowherd put it simply — “The Texas Longhorns...

Post-game thoughts: Red flags from inexcusable loss against Iowa State

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via Texas was in control of this game for 58 minutes and still managed to lose. In what was Sam Ehlinger, Joseph Ossai and the rest of the seniors final home game at DKR-Memorial Stadium, you couldn’t script a more disappointing end to their Longhorn careers in a Burnt Orange jersey. It’s inexcusable to lose a game you were in control of for 58 minutes. This was a game that these players 100 percent deserved to win. There’s no doubt about it. Their performance on-the-field, especially on defense, was more than enough to be...

Live Reaction: Texas falls to Iowa State at home

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports The Longhorns’ offense couldn’t put it together in the second half and it cost them. The Texas Longhorns weren’t sharp on offense and the Iowa State Cyclones managed to do just enough on offense to come away with a 23-20 win Friday. Texas jumped out to a big lead and in spite of the defense bailing them out on numerous times, the offense managed just one score following the first quarter and could not send it to overtime.

No. 17 Texas squanders late lead vs. No. 13 Iowa State for 23-20 loss: Post-game commiseration thread

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via The Longhorns had the ball and the lead lade, but a stagnant offense and an explosive drive from ISU ended Texas’ Big 12 title hopes. Following early three weeks away from the game field, the No. 17 Texas Longhorns had an ideal opportunity to capture their fourth consecutive win, owning the lead and the ball late in the fourth. But a quick three-and-out followed by an Iowa State touchdown saw the Longhorns lose that lead, 23-20, with only 1:32 to play. The Sam Ehlinger-led offense marched down the field, but a critical...

On Monday, head coach Tom Herman listed Ingram as questionable for the big game, but on Friday morning, he told Longhorn Network that Ingram will not appear against the Cyclones.

Since Texas Longhorns defensive coordinator Chris Ash vowed to fix the team’s tackling problems following an exceptionally poor performance in that regard against the Texas Tech Red Raiders to open Big 12 play, the Longhorns defense has steadily improved from week to week, including in that key area. As Ash has gained a better understanding of his personnel, he’s made some adjustments to...
