A frustrating season comes to a fitting end for the Texas Longhorns.
The Longhorns, through a stupefying combination of incompetence and bad luck, scored 2 points in the first 12 1/2 minutes. They went into halftime down 31-17. They let the Bearcats extend the lead to 19. And they stormed back to tie the game at 52 with 3 minutes left to go before letting yet another close game slip through their fingers.
Stop me if you've heard this before.
Ultimately, the slow start created too high a mountain to scale all the way up. The Cincinnati Bearcats weren't particularly good, but they were more experienced. And while young talent allowed the Longhorns to claw their way back, inexperience ultimately doomed them.
First, a hand for fifth-year
