This is the weekend that has haunted the Longhorns



This weekend is special in that since 2004, this weekend surrounding Halloween has been a most predictable downward trend given all the success Mack Brown has had at The University of Texas. Since then, there has been a game against Tech or OSU where the Horns have trailed at some point by 19 or more in the game. Amazingly, the Longhorns are 4-1 in these games. Looking back, 11/6/2004, the Longhorns were down by 28 points to Oklahoma State, and we all know what happened in the second half. The undefeated 2005 season looked like it may end again to the Cowboys while trailing by as much as 19 points in the second quarter. We know what Vince did in the second half. Against Texas Tech in 2006, the Horns trailed by 21 points in the first quarter before pecking away at the lead to win a close one in the fourth quarter. Again in Stillwater 2007, the Longhorns trailed by 21 points to the Cowboys before overtaking them in the last play of the game. And finally, last year, we all know how the Horns trailed by 19 points at halftime, took the lead and then lost with 0:01 on the clock. I hope GD and the offense does not get conservative early, attacks down the field, and makes OSU play ctach-up like they did last year in Austin. Hook 'em Horns!!
