If you, as a Texas Longhorns fan, haven’t already thrown your computer through the TV, then you are reading this article still very mad, so I will try to calm you down but I must put some truth out there first.

This is a bad basketball team that will not make the NCAA tournament.

Chaminade after being down 8-0 never were out of it and that was the only time the Longhorns had a chance in this game. The first half was bad the second half was even worse. I am not even sure the Longhorns had a plan in the second half. Texas had an advantage in the paint and never went to it unless they were forcing it down low. They kept shooting the ball from 3 without a chance at ever making a shot. They got blown out by a Division 2 opponent. This is the lowest of low for Texas Basketball.

At this point, Rick Barnes needs to go. This team has regressed since being ranked #1 in 2010. This basketball program is in desperate need of an injection of new energy because the excuse that this team is young will not cut it in college basketball anymore. Rick Barnes did not have his team ready to go for this game and that is a shame. Texas basketball fans deserve better. The good news? This is a very attractive basketball job that will attract a top candidate in the country.
