Postgame Inebriation: Oklahoma-45, Texas-40

Vance Bedford proves that he was the key component keeping Longhorn opponents under 600 yards.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to the Texas offense and special teams for fighting and competing against the Sooners.

D'onta Foreman was scintillating in the 2nd half (127 yards after the break), Buechele got it together after a tough first stanza and the OL found religion in the halftime locker room.  I also like what I saw from freshmen Devin Duvernay and Collin Johnson.

As for the newly coordinated Texas Longhorn defense...

The Texas defense did force turnovers for the first time this season, but also surrendered 672 yards and allowed a 300 yard+ passer, a 200 yard+ receiver and a 200 yard+ rusher.

That's the futility trifecta.

Barring unlikely events, Texas will have a new coach in 2017.
