Texas player apologizes for halftime tweet in loss to TCU

Cal improved to 5-0 on Saturday behind the arm of Goff.


Texas cornerback Kris Boyd has apologized for being on Twitter during halftime of an embarrassing 50-7 loss to No. 3 TCU, when he passed along a suggestion that he transfer to Texas A&M. Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and Florida’s Jim McElwain have breathed new life into their programs and have managed to get a jump-start on rebuilding the reputation of each program.

According to, billionaire donor Red McCombs “reached out to Strong and offered his support via email” this week in the days following the Longhorns’ loss to Oklahoma State.

“I know the day was bad”.

John Harbaugh usually spends Saturdays during football season getting his Baltimore Ravens ready to play on Sunday. “We’ve got to play a little bit smarter”, West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen.

The temperatures across Texas are dropping but Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong is feeling the heat. The worst was in 1904, by 68 to the University of Chicago. The loss drops Texas to 1-4, with only one or two fairly winnable games left on the schedule.

TCU beat Texas in consecutive years for the first time since 1958-59, outscoring the Longhorns 98-17. “I’m not that old”. Just remember Michigan also got a spark in the first year with Brady Hoke as head coach, taking a Rich Rodriguez team to the Sugar Bowl in year one. Boykin shouldered the strain just last week as TCU…

“Our players should never be on their phone”, Strong said. “I was not aware of that”.

Josh Doctson is second in the nation in touchdown catches with eight. He had a better game passing and rushing than fellow QB Jerrod Heard versus TCU.

A bright spot for the Longhorns, besides last week against TCU, has been their offense.

But perhaps Boykin’s most memorable throw was his third touchdown. – Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy about kicker Ben Grogan, who has hit game-winning field goals in each of the last two games.

On the ensuing free kick, Nick Rose’s kickoff went out of bounds, giving the Horned Frogs the ball at the 50. KaVontae Turpin had a huge game for the Horned Frogs, grabbing six receptions for 138 yards and four TDs.

“Everyone felt disrespected… He didn’t think anything was wrong with it”, senior defensive back Duke Thomas said.

He’d be owed millions from Texas and would be able to get a coaching job at a place with realistic expectations that will utilize him to the fullest, and Texas would be stuck at square one with a roster full of blue chippers but no direction.


Afterward, Jim said, “He gave really good input during the game”.
