NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Texas at Washington John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a long week of hot takes already, after the Texas Longhorns dropped a narrow Sugar Bowl to the Washington Huskies in the College Football Playoff Semifinals. But alas, here’s another hot take on Texas’ woes over the weekend. This time, from Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt.

“Now again, this is a double-edged sword, because if you’re aggressive and it works then it’s fantastic and if you’re aggressive and it doesn’t work then guess what? It’s 2nd and 10 and it’s essentially like creating a negative play. And so because of that, Texas was constantly chasing what I would call efficiency. They were chasing the ability to be on schedule,” Klatt said earlier this week, according to On3.

Washington quarterback Michael Penix was bound to score, in other words.
