If this isn’t a fitting metaphor for Texas’ wretched season, I don’t know what is.
… Texas A&M punted the ball back to Texas with about 10 seconds left and Ken Wood had to pick the snap off the ground to get it away. Texas tried to block it and freshman returner Adrian Phillips let the ball bounce on the ground.
That let the final seconds run out. The mistake was a fitting end to Texas’ miserable season and several players threw up their hands in frustration…
If Georgia wins tomorrow, the Dawgs will finish 6-6 and begin preparing to play in a bowl game, both accomplishments the Longhorns, with all that money and all those top five recruiting classes, will miss in 2010. After the Colorado loss, who could have foreseen that?
