Wescott Eberts and Cameron Parker share their final thoughts on the 55-48 loss for the Texas Longhorns to the Oklahoma Sooners and where this ranks in the echelon of great Texas losses in the Red River Showdown.

We dive into the good and bad of Steve Sarkisian’s game management (3:30) versus the Sooners before talking about the mental toughness of this Texas team and if Sark is still trying to change the attitude in the locker room (5:30).

Next, we talk about Oklahoma’s rushing attack, the Texas defensive line, and the Jacoby Jones injury. Plus, the Texas offensive woes in the 2nd half (10:00), penalties on the offensive line, the lack of touches for running backs Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson, and who will have to step up in the wake of Jordan Whittington’s injury (13:30).

Finally, we conclude with a discussion on Xavier Worthy’s fumble on the kickoff return (17:00) and the impressive performances of Casey Thompson and Caleb Williams (20:00).

As always, thanks for listening and if you have any questions for our podcast later this week, drop a question in the comment section below. Cheers!
