The combination of the Thanksgiving holiday and Texas high school football playoffs made it difficult for some players to make it to Austin for Texas' loss to TCU. Looking back, though, that could have been a good thing given the way the Longhorns played. Then again, it was on national television for the whole country to see.
One of those players who wasn't able to make it in was 2013 Texas commitment Geoff Swaim, who watched the game back home.
"I thought it was a tough game," Swaim said. "There didn't seem to be a lot of rhythm in the game, and when you don't have any rhythm it's hard to get anything going."
Despite the loss, Swaim isn't getting discouraged with his choice to commit to Texas and still thinks the lofty expectations of this team moving forward are well in reach.
