Texas Rangers tweet “Fire Charlie” during Longhorns’ blowout against TCU

Still, what matters right now for the fourth-ranked and playoff-hopeful Horned Frogs (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) is that they are still undefeated. In the Longhorns’ loss 45-44 loss to Cal on September 19, they missed an extra point that would have sent the game into overtime. Then a dropped punt snap set up Oklahoma State for the winning field goal in the final seconds as the Longhorns lost their Big 12 opener at home last week.


Either way, Texas is playing better than its overall record would indicate.

After the game, UT Head Coach Charlie Strong told reporters that he’s “totally disappointed” and “we have to play better”. “Everybody has a job to do, and just do your job and just keep battling, keep competing”. Patterson said keeping Heard bottled up was a focal point all week in practice.

We’re just trying to build a resume and leave a legacy that will be remembered forever.

A TCU defense missing six starters because of injuries and other issues slowed Jerrod Heard for the second straight week after two explosive games from the Texas freshman quarterback. Texas had the lead entering the fourth quarter but its last three possessions produced no first downs as Heard’s protection melted away. The Frogs had 331 yards of offense at the break compared to 156 for Texas.Boykin also has the nation’s longest game streak with a touchdown pass at 20.

On the plus side for Texas, special teams didn’t cost the Longhorns another game.

Dalton, a second-round draft choice of the Bengals in 2011, was a two-time Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year at TCU and MVP of three bowl games, including the Rose Bowl in 2011. TCU won 48-10 in Austin last season.

So how can the Longhorns pull off the upset and begin the strides towards a salvaged season?


Tuaua finished with three tackles, and one of Pierson’s four came in the Longhorns backfield.
