There's really no other way to say it.
This game was an exercise in frustration from all sides. UT's offense was held to field goals and not much else. The defense's secondary did much better than last week, eventually, and Vance Bedford's defensive squad also put two touchdowns on the board.
But the reffing was simply awful all around,
Nick Rose was actually really fine this week. Did great. Kudos to that kid for bouncing back when a lesser kicker would have been a mess. Nope, that we left to our punter who, apparently, was thinking about a final, his date the night before, chicken nuggets, something, anything other than taking the snap on the 4th down and getting rid of the f'ing ball.
We'd been up for most of the game, a position no Texas fan really expected to find the team in, so the crappy way in which we lost the game was more than a smidge painful. Especially as the refs called back two big TD plays on ticky-tacky penalties, called a nonsensical defensive holding call that impacted the 4th quarter play like no one's business (and was clearly offensive holding, you dumb zebra), called a penalty on Charlie Strong for protesting the shitty reffing. Oh, and called a fumble for OSU when it was pretty clear that it was recovered by UT.
