Longhorns lose again, 39-14, but the Ags win big

The daily has this priceless recitation of a priceless play against Kansas State that finally led me to turn off the K-State-Texas part of the rube tube and find something better to do.

“Pretty play, similar outcome—Garrett Gilbert threw the prettiest ball of the season when he hit James Kirkendoll in stride on a 68-yard touchdown pass. It was something the offense hadn’t shown all year.

“Kirkendoll was celebrating when he saw the yellow flag lying on the ground. Trey Hopkins was called for holding. The play was called back.”

Stumble bums. Even when they do it right they do it wrong. I’m betting on a 4-8 season and no bowl that’s televised. This is their worst season since I don’t remember when. Even likewise-unranked Southern Cal isn’t this bad.

Earlier, the highlight of the evening was watching Texas A&M throttle Oklahoma (as I expect the Ags will likewise thump hapless Texas on Thanksgiving). As the daily’s Cedric Golden says, these are fascinating times for the Big 12 as the traditional underdogs rise up and take control.
