If you're still following the Texas Longhorns (11-14, 3-9) and their cluster of a season, I salute you. Tonight, Texas and the TCU Horned Frogs (10-15, 1-11) go head-to-head for "worst team in the Big 12" honors.

The Longhorns' non-showing against Kansas was so atrocious, a post-mortem wasn't even necessary. Meanwhile, TCU has dropped 3 in a row since shocking the Jayhawks. Their last two losses, to Oklahoma and Iowa St., were by a combined 61 points. Not to lose the futility game, Texas has topped 61 points in just 5 of its 12 conference games, and still managed to go just 2-3 in those matchups.

Avert your eyes.
