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 Tigers.

Pre-Game (15:00) WTH SEC?! Hey SEC… did you really get a look at what you just invited to the party. A stadium that has a hill set aside for MU Fans to lay blankets and pillows to watch a game?! Did you ever think that an SEC team is now going to have to play a game in the snow with this group?

1st Quarter (13:11) WTH Acho?! Clearly the leader of the defense, Emmanuel Acho, came up with a momentum changing turnover to stop a possible opening score. Acho lead the team in tackles with 12. He is one player that Manny Diaz cannot afford to lose.

1st Quarter (10:30) WTH Turning Point One?! Fozzy Whittaker was the only real option at running back with Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron nursing injuries. Captain America, Superman, MVP, whatever you want to call him; went down with a season ending injury on the 6th offensive play of the game. The emotional leader of the offense was helped off the field as well as any semblance of a running game left with him. A true warrior!

2nd Quarter (8:55) WTH Turf?! Missouri, I understand that your stadium needs to add some seats for the invasions of the SEC rednecks. You may want to improve your turf while you’re at it since your number one running back Henry Josey sustained a season ending knee injury. You claim MU that you are getting more money by moving to the SEC. Spend it wisely!

2nd Quarter (5:02) WTH Turning Point Two?! Are we moving closer to touch football? Kenny Vaccaro had the hit of the game that any coach would be proud to show his team. The refs thought he was headhunting and threw the flag. The next play the Tigers ran over the deflated Horns defense for a 35 yard score.

3rd Quarter (3:31) WTH Special?! There is nothing special about a MU punt block earlier in the quarter which led to a field goal. But when the Horns came back with their own punt block, this turned into less of a score with a safety. I guess Murphy was on the Horns sideline because everything went wrong with this game.

End of the Game WTH Scribes?! Score one for the Sportswriters school of choice which is Missouri. MU can revel in the fact that they beat the evil empire and the LHN before they go to the SEC. Good luck boys, you are going to need it. I guess the homely girl can score every once in a while.

Next up for the Longhorns are the Wildcats of Kansas State visiting Austin at 7PM on November 19th.

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!!
