Despite this now being game week for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas football program against head coach Nick Saban and the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, the parking concerns still remain in the discussion for the players on this team.

Following Texas’ commanding 52-10 win over head coach Terry Bowden and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks out of the Sun Belt over the weekend, redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers took to social media to continue the conversation about the parking on the Forty Acres. Ewers mentioned on Twitter after this win that he got towed during the game.

He specifically tweeted out “how’d I get towed during the game” with a laughing face emoji.

That created quite the stir on social media in reaction to Ewers’ tweet. In fact, there are currently more than 30,000 likes and 2,000+ retweets on Ewers’ post.

There are also some other Longhorns players that have taken issue with the Texas parking management in the last couple of months. Redshirt junior running back Keilan Robinson and redshirt freshman wide receiver Agiye Hall both have also taken issue with Texas parking.

Yet, in his Monday press conference on Sep. 5, Sark didn’t take too long to quash the parking concerns that Ewers brought up on social media a couple of days ago. Sark said laughing during the press conference that “he’s got to park where he’s supposed to park” and that “he wasn’t parking where he was supposed to be on gameday”.

There was obviously a tone that wasn’t very serious to this. But it is interesting how the parking situation on the Forty Acres has continuously stuck around for the last couple of months.

Sark and Ewers will now turn the focus to planning and preparing for the big-time matchup next weekend at home against Alabama. Texas and Alabama will both come into this high-stakes meeting with a record of 1-0. Sark and the Longhorns are coming off that 42-point win over ULM last weekend. Meanwhile, Alabama dominated the Utah State Aggies by more than a 50-point margin in their opener.
