I had the cutest little gummy frogs for this TEXAS, and I was optimistic that our team would really show up for Coach Strong.

But instead, our team was shown up. The gummies were extra-chewy, too.

So that’s all she wrote on the Strong era, D’Onta’s Heisman that could’ve been, the loss of all that promise we felt on opening night after beating Notre Dame.

Here’s to fresh starts, stud recruits, and WINS.

Hook ’em.

I got all fancy with this TEXAS, seeing as how SURELY we’d win this one! It’s KANSAS, after all! Our coach might be in hot water for losing all those other road games, but KANSAS? As sure as sunflowers grow in Kansas, I was certain Texas would win.

*cough cough*

After this debacle, Coach Strong was as good as gone, and shortly after the season ended, he was officially on his way out of Austin.Was this loss all his fault? Not hardly. Did he run the routes, block, tackle? Nope. I liked the guy as a leader, as a man, but I can sum up why I think he had to go in four words: Can’t. Lose. To. Kansas!

There really isn’t a bright side to this embarrassing loss, but if there were, it would be that I saw very little of this game. I was lucky enough to accompany Ryan to New Orleans, where he was auditioning for College Jeopardy! He didn’t get the call, but he had a blast going through the process. We had a great day tooling around NOLa, too!
