That game was an omen of things to come for Texas football. I don't know what happened to Mack Brown after that game, but his inability to develop players on that talented roster put Texas in a rut that it has yet to craw out of.
I was there and we were the bigger, stronger, faster team. The Horns fans looked at it as they were off to a great start before Colt went down. I looked at as we handed them the ball three times on our side of the field and they came away with three points and a broken QB. If we hadn't taken our foot off the gas it would have never been close and still ended up as a 17 point loss... if memory serves. They couldnt move the ball at all so we went super conservative and kind of lost our rythm.
