Trevor Knight looks foolish calling Texas football a ‘beatable’ team

Last weekend, we saw Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian absolutely obliterate new head coach Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Oct. 8. And there was something that a former Oklahoma quarterback had to say this week about how Oklahoma looked in that loss to Texas in Red River.

Former Oklahoma and Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Trevor Knight joined the “Field of 12 Media: Where college football happens” show on Oct. 11, in which he talked about the results coming out of Red River and his “frustrations” with Venables and the Sooners in Big 12 play thus far.

There were certainly some interesting takes here from Knight, but the most notable by far was him saying that “Oklahoma played like an FCS team” in Red River against Texas.

Knight also noted that “this does not happen at the University of Oklahoma and hasn’t happened”.

But this is where the takes started to get ice cold from Knight in reference to the Longhorns. Here’s more on what Knight had to say in regard to Texas coming out of Red River last weekend.

Trevor Knight gives an ice-cold take on Texas football following Red River

"“You let a Texas team who is extremely beatable — and we seen that when they traveled to Lubbock and got beat by a pretty pedestrian Texas Tech team — make you look like an FCS team.”"

Knight had some bold takes here saying that Texas “is extremely beatable” after the Horns “got beat by a pretty pedestrian Texas Tech team”.

My response to that is that this “extremely beatable” Texas team just handed Oklahoma the worst shutout loss in program history. And it’s worth noting that this Texas team was one unfortunate quarterback injury away from probably beating the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide just a few weeks prior to the Red River beatdown.

I also want someone to explain to me how this team is “extremely beatable” when the offense is led by a quarterback in Ewers that Knight said “proved me wrong” in Red River. That is pretty condescending and disproves the point that Knight is trying to make about Texas here.

Even if Dillon Gabriel is in the game for the Sooners last weekend, I have a really hard time believing that Oklahoma is able to keep it close with the Longhorns.

Moreover, Knight calling Texas Tech a “pretty pedestrian” team is also interesting since that looks like a squad primed to pull off some upsets in the Big 12 this season. There’s little doubt in my mind that Texas Tech is going to give Oklahoma all it can handle and more when these two teams square off on Nov. 26 in Lubbock.

Texas is sporting a record of 4-2 (2-1 Big 12) as this team is taking on the Iowa State Cyclones on Oct. 15. Meanwhile, Oklahoma is currently beating the Kansas Jayhawks trying to improve on a record of 3-3 (0-3 Big 12) after Red River.
