An F minus is the grade I give the Longhorns on lastnights sketchy win over Arkansas State. I love the Longhorns and I bleed organge like the majority of people here in Austin Texas. Lastnight however was rather dissapointing and kind of scary. The Longhorns are fortunate that they played this poorly against Arkansas State and not a better opponent or we would be feeling like the Wolverines today wondering where to go next. The Longhorns had penalties and gave up some big drives by the Arkansas State offense. If their kicker hadnt missed a couple of kicks this game could have been an upset. With TCU coming to Austin on Saturday the Longhorns will need to really kick start themselves this week and get it together. TCU rolled over Baylor lastnight easily 27-0. If the Longhorns dont step it up the Horned Frogs will roll over us. I have faith that lastnight was a fluke and it was just a bad effort put on by the Longhorns. They have so much talent and potential to go all the way this season. The running game needs to be able to put the ball in the endzone because going on all 4 downs on your opponents 3 and not getting in is not good at all. So come on Longhorns lets get it together and play the football you are capable and expected to play.
