“It would be huge for the sport,” if Texas made the College Football Playoff in 2023, Klatt said, per On3. “Texas is the most underachieving roster in college football over the last five years … I saw Quinn and chatted with him just a couple of weeks ago in Dallas. And, you know, that’s why I was making fun of you because like, listen, he cut his mullet … It wasn’t necessarily grown up. There was a sense of urgency about the way that he was talking about the season. It wasn’t so much ‘I’m happy to be here. And isn’t this great?’ As much as it was like ‘I’ve got a mission to accomplish.’”
