Hey you, Joe Fan. Tom Herman does not care for your armchair opinions. Tim Beck was Herman’s Plan A as OC. “Chalk that one up to a lot of misinformation on social media,” Herman said. “We’ll never be swayed by any of that because we’re privy to a lot more information than what Joe Fan is.”

The men’s basketball team lost to Iowa State on the road. “The Longhorns’ carelessness with the ball spoiled a rare hot-shooting night for the team. Texas shot 53 percent from the field and a scorching 50 percent from deep. But Iowa State ended the game with 14 more shot attempts than Texas, which proved to be the difference.”
Women’s basketball coach Karen Aston got her 200th career win.

Charlie Strong has no regrets about Texas. "I have no regrets at all, " Strong said. "There's a lot of things I would do differently, but just no regrets of being there at all and I hope the University of Texas feels the same way about me.”
