At the postgame press conference head coach Steve Sarkisian took ownership for the loss and the team’s inability to execute plays while keeping a steadfast resolve saying, “We create our own opportunity through hard work and that’s what we’re going to do. I don’t know any other way to do it than that, and so, you know we don’t have time for feeling sorry for ourselves. This has been a long month of some grueling losses as we all know, and our guys continue to come back and fight back.”

I like exploring the why's and have three objectives. First is to give value to those who would spend time with our content. Second is to be respectful of others and for the opportunity to tell a positive story about all of the Texas Longhorns teams, players, and coaches regardless of their record. Lastly, to put wind in the sails of others using the Horns Illustrated platform. Life is GOOD!
