For the 110th
time, Oklahoma and Texas will take the field together in the Red River Shootout
Rivalry. This rivalry game is usually a chance for both teams to posture on the national stage, but this year it is marred by a Texas team in full disarray. They have a chance to be the worst Longhorn team since the 4-7 1997 team led by John Mackovic, who was replaced by Mack Brown the following season. Their 1-4 start is the worst since 1956. Despite their abysmal start, and even with players tweeting about
transferring at halftime, Charlie Strong reportedly still has some “breathing room.” Could an ugly loss be the end of Strong’s tenure in Austin?
