The Longhorns just gave up a few too many big plays and couldn't make enough of their own, falling 38-26 to Oklahoma State. Add the fact that even when they got a break, it wasn't a break--i.e., the safety that could instead have been a pick six--and it just wasn't meant to be today.
Regardless, though, the team showed resiliency both in coming out inspired after last week's debacle and in responding to several big moments for the Cowboys within the game. It didn't feel like watching last year's losses; this team looks like it's making progress and it seems the losses are actually worth something in 2011, whereas the 2010 team was just a depressing mess. So hang in there, Longhorn fans--there are glimmers of light at the end of the tunnel.
