Texas Longhorns Blowout Loss Overshadowed by Twitter Fiasco


As if the Texas Longhorns 50-7 blowout loss to TCU wasn’t enough, the Twitter-verse poured salt on an open wound.

Simply put, the Texas Longhorns got taken to the woodshed by TCU today.

We could go on and on about the Horns poor play on the field, but unfortunately, something far more disturbing took place at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

After a horrendous first half where special teams mistakes and mental meltdowns galore plagued the Longhorns, you’d think every player would be angry with the result heading into the locker room at halftime.

Not Kris Boyd, though.

The freshman cornerback decided to not only spend halftime on his phone, but even worse, retweeting a plea from a Texas A&M fan for him to transfer to College Station with freshman linebacker Malik Jefferson.

As many will recall, Jefferson looked like he was destined for A&M early on in his recruitment until the Aggies fired their defensive coordinator. For now, we don’t know if Jefferson feels the same way Boyd does, but his past with A&M is worth mentioning.

Boyd is the real concern here, though. Rumors of him flipping to the Aggies continuously swirled right up until National Signing Day. Well, it looks like those rumors will once again pick up steam after his egregious retweet.

The better question here is why is Boyd even on his phone during halftime? You really have to question his commitment level when you see him make choices like this.

Former Texas commit Cecil Cherry had some advice for Boyd, encouraging him to do what is best for him.

Considering Cherry left the Longhorns program after a couple of days of practice, it’s tough to really take his comment to seriously, even though it is a fair comment. Either way, I’m sure Horns’ fans will have kind words for Cherry’s advice on Twitter.

The Twitter fiasco didn’t end there, though. The Texas Rangers Twitter account shared their feelings about head coach Charlie Strong.

The Rangers would later release this statement, apologizing for the tweet.

The Rangers did lose Saturday’s game in epic fashion, so I guess that’s a bit of karma for the shot at Strong.

Their loss doesn’t change the mess at Texas, however. With the Longhorns season spinning out of control, it should be a very interesting week on the 40 Acres.
