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 Wyoming Cowboys.

Garrett Gilbert vs Wyoming

Texas QB Garrett Gilbert passed for 222 yards and found a new favorite target vs Wyoming.

1st Quarter (3:12) WTH Replay Booth?! I have officially seen the worst booth review in the history of officiating. After Wyoming punts the ball, a Cowboy defender rolls into the end zone with the football for a clear touchback. I believe even in the officials on the field were asking themselves are you kidding me. The play stood and the Horns took over on their 20.

2nd Quarter (3:24) WTH Fozzy Bear?! We have a new starting running back at Texas. Fozzy Whittaker rumbled through four tacklers on his way for a 39 yard touchdown that even Earl Campbell would be proud. He finished as the leading rusher for the gameā€¦ with 62 yards?

2nd Quarter (1:48) WTH Davis?! Be ready for this tandem to strike for many more touchdowns, when Garret Gilbert hit Mike Davis on a quick pass that Davis took it the distance for a 45 yard touchdown to seal the game. The freshman wide receiver lead all pass catchers with 104 yards for the evening.

3rd Quarter (6:00) WTH Late Flag?! Blake Gideon lit up a Wyoming receiver which resulted in an incomplete pass. The hit brought back memories of a Longhorn great John Hagy. The ref decided to throw a flag because he thought it was a flag football game. I loved Coach Blood’s assessment of the bad call as “it is better to say Whoa than Giddy up” to his fired up defense.

3rd Quarter (1:38) WTH Cowboys?! Not only was that fake field goal poorly executed to try and gain some momentum. The camera shot of your oldest fan wearing nothing but a yellow Wyoming barrel was another empty and disturbing moment.

4th Quarter (12:01) WTH UT Fans?! Seriously. Did you not know that the “Wave” is old and out dated? Glad to see that a 29 yard pass completion by the Cowboys put an end to that effort. The Hellraisers with Fox Sports Jim Knox was another fan forgettable moment.

End of Game WTH UT Tower?! I enjoy seeing the tower lit orange on the Godzillatron minus the kids trying to get in the camera shot. But as much as we want to show our spirit and tradition after winning a game, it would have been nice not to see the Tower clock at 6:30 when the game was over at 9:30pm.

Next up for the Longhorn’s are the Red Raiders in Lubbock at 7pm on Sept. 18th.

Thanks for following my WTH articles throughout the season. I appreciate the opportunity to rant about the greatest University sports program in the country. You can continue to follow comments on all of UT sports on twitter at 40AcresSports or follow me at Horns1991. HOOK EM!!
