Post Game Thread | Texas Tech Red Raiders 16, Texas Longhorns 41

Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

Texas Tech gets man-handled in Austin as the Red Raiders lose to the Texas Longhorns.

Well, I don't know what to type here. I'll think of something, as I always tend to think of something. I can't offer much in terms of what went right because there's just not all that much that went right. Just not much at all.


  • I am really happy that Bruce Jones is on the sideline and walking around. That is definitely right.
  • Michael Brewer is magical. I think.  I still don't get this, but maybe I'm just not supposed to get this.  Even so, Brewer couldn't avoid the offensive line issues.


  • The offense was just dominated. Only 3 points produced by the offense.
  • Baker Mayfield just couldn't get it going and it was painfully obvious with about 7 minutes left in the first half. Mayfield just could never find a spot where he was comfortable. Part of that was on the offensive line, but Mayfield takes a lot of blame here.
  • The line couldn't hold their blocks. This was a Texas defense that was vulnerable, but not if you watched this game. Not an effort issue, just not knowing who to block at times, just completely missing and getting overwhelmed.
  • Oh my, the penalties and the turnovers. They were embarassing. And the special teams, just can't get everyone on the same page.
  • The defense really did have some positive plays, but they were greatly out-weighed (obviously) by the final score. I still think they are out-manned, but maybe not. I'm sure schematically there is something that can be done, but Wallerstedt hasn't figured it out, if it is technique, so I don't feel bad that I haven't figured it out either.
  • Once Jones went down, it seemed like Falemi was an immediate target.
  • The shoulder slumps on Kingsbury was everything that I needed to know about how he felt. It's strange how much he keeps faith in a quarterback. It's pretty much unwavering and maybe that's the selling point to Brewer or anyone else. If you're starting, you're the guy. I can't decide if this is something that belongs in the "what went wrong" section or "what went right".
