Heartbreak once again.

“I don’t know when we’re going to break through that barrier,” head coach Tom Herman said. “I thought it was going to be this week. We had an unbelievable week of preparation. The guys were focused and ready to go. But it wasn't.”

The defense kept Texas in the game.

"Monumental effort by our defense," Herman said. "To hold the No. 1 (offensive) team in the country to 10 points in regulation is something to be very, very proud of.

"We've got to help them more on offense. I'm looking at this 3-of-17 on third down and obviously the turnover there at the end. We've got to fix what's wrong on offense. And we have flashes, but we're definitely not consistent enough"

It’s the third time this season Texas went into overtime, but couldn’t get the job done.

“I feel like we're in every game,” junior safety DeShon Elliott said. “We don't know how to finish. We'll get to that point. We'll keep digging and eventually we'll get to diamonds.”

Mike Gundy had a 20-minute brain drain in the post-game presser.

The USA Today lists Texas as one of the most miserable programs.

But it’s also true that Texas’ offense has been something less than mediocre, which is a surprise given Herman’s reputation. Under the circumstances, fans don’t want to hear how close Texas is to breaking through, which is the message Herman keeps trying to send. At Texas, you’re either good enough or you’re not. The Longhorns may lose close thanks to their defense, but they still lose.

There was lots of drama for the Bears last weekend. But despite being 0-7, the Bears are definitely headed in the right direction.
