Texas hits ugly low in loss to West Virginia

Steve Sarkisian does Hook Em

The Texas Longhorns hit a new low this season during Saturday’s loss to West Virginia.

The Longhorns fell 31-23 for their sixth straight loss, sending them to 4-7 on the season. They were officially eliminated from bowl contention with the defeat.

Texas went into halftime trailing 21-10. Quarterback Casey Thompson had a pathetic showing, going 4/14 for 29 yards with an interception. He was replaced in the second half by Hudson Card who went 10/16 for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian has many weaknesses, but his one strength is supposed to be on offense, and especially in the passing game. His starting quarterback having such a poor first half is a true embarrassment for the program.

Texas has now lost six games in a row for the first time since 1956.

The Longhorns were once 4-1 and led 41-23 against Oklahoma late in the third quarter of the Red River Shootout. They blew that lead, lost 55-48, and haven’t won since. They even lost last week to Kansas.

Texas really got rid of a guy who went 7-3 and won a bowl game last season only to hire Sarkisian to go 4-7 and lose six in a row. That’s awful.
