Poor Texas-Turtles slay the fatted steer in DRK; “Riley’s Rowdies” mine Miners with ease…..

The Tom Hermon era at the University of Texas (at Austin) began today at DKR Stadium and it was a disaster for the Longhorns as the Maryland Terps took the fight to “Texas Fight” and slaughtered the Steers 51 to 41.  Good luck to all those prognosticators that had the Horns running the table this year and winning the Big Twelve Conference.  It is not going to happen.


As Texas’s new head man was getting his ass handed to him Oklahoma’s new head coach Lincoln Riley had a much better day as the his Sooners had their way with the Miners of UTEP 56-7 in a home opener in Norman.  Yes, a weaker foe for Riley’s new team than Harmon’s Horn’s yet the Sooners looked like a well oiled wagon as Baker Mayfield, playing only one half, was on target with 19 completions in 20 attempts with three touchdown passes.  Passing yardage for Mayfield was 329.   Eight Sooners scored touchdowns as “Riley’s Rowdies” found the “gold mine” of UTEP and took the booty.
Good luck Texas, you need it.  It could be a very long season.  Sooners, you get a powerhouse next week in Columbus.  Should be a doozey.
