Campus Clicks: Longhorns rough season continues, best of Spurrier rants
Conspiracy against the Longhorns?
We've barely reached October but the 2015 season already feels like a long, painful one for Texas fans. From their agonizing 1-3 start to Steve Patterson's dismissal as AD, it's been far from a fun season. And now, people are furious over poor officiating, leading to conspiracy theory talk. It's been rough all around but at least Texas seniors can find a silver lining during the heartbreaking season.
Off the field, reports are saying that Nike will not renew their apparel contract with the school, an interesting story you should keep your eye on, especially as they search for a new AD. Could Under Armour or adidas scoop up one of the country's biggest college brands?
And finally, watch this adorable little Texas A&M fan refuse to wear a Longhorns dress and apparently A&M regents are advocating for the Aggies to schedule the Longhorns to give them a "cupcake" game.
