WTH?! (What the Heck?) moments are attempts to find the memorable and the off-beat perspective on Longhorns sports. Here are some interesting moments from the Texas’ game against the Kansas Jayhawks.

Pregame WTH DKR Memorial?! On a chilly night with the largest crowd in UT history to watch a football game (101,357) the stadium crew went a little overboard. The customary smoke machine that the team enters the playing field was a little concerning. I was waiting for some of the Horns to run into the goal post upon exiting with way too much smoke bellowing out of the tunnel.

1st Quarter (5:54) WTH Fisher?! I enjoy the enthusiasm from a weatherman, but this is ridiculous. KTBC Scott Fisher opened up his forecast on the Godzillatron with the words “Howdy, howdy, howdy…” Sorry Scott but please know your audience. We play against the Aggies later this week.

2nd Quarter (6:50) WTH Mangino?! KU Jacob Branstetter was told to onside kick by the “Big Man” early on in a close game. This was the wrong message to send to the Jayhawks that they needed this trick play to stay with the Horns. The resulting play was unsuccessful and the Horns took over to extend their lead with a 49 yard field goal by [tag]Hunter Lawrence[/tag] (17-6).

3rd Quarter (8:03) WTH McCoy?! One play. One throw. One awesome touchdown. Great throw by [tag]Colt McCoy[/tag] and an awesome grab by a streaking [tag]Malcolm Williams[/tag] for a 68 yard completion that completely knocked the Jayhawks out of the game. WTH Shout out to Colt McCoy for becoming the winningest quarterback in college football (43 wins). We hope you extend this record by a few more games!

4th Quarter (11:29) WTH UT Kickoff coverage?! OK we have one major concern that popped up in this game. The kickoff coverage was abysmal when KU Dezmon Briscoe ran back the kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. UT Justin Tucker has the leg but he does not always make it to the end zone. The coverage team is at fault for this return. WTH Shout out to UT redshirt freshman [tag]Jamison Berryhill[/tag] (5-11, 225) who routinely ran down the field to be a wedge buster. Love seeing a player give up his body for his team.

WTH Shout Out?! Thanks Longhorn seniors for a tremendous season, especially Colt McCoy and [tag]Jordan Shipley[/tag] for delivering a Big XII South Championship.

Next up for the Longhorn’s is the final regular game of the season against the Aggies at 7pm November 26th.

    Nice use of the word “abysmal”. Leave Fisher alone . . . I like him . . .
