AUSTIN, Texas -- The longtime Texas fan heading down the elevator inside Darrell K Royal Texas-Memorial Stadium thought the Longhorns gave a valiant effort in their 38-26 loss to No. 6 Oklahoma State on Saturday.

"I'm as pleased as I can be right now," he said, before uttering a phrase one might expect from a fan of a program as storied as Texas'. "I can't believe I just said that." Taking positives out of a loss isn't something Longhorns fans are used to. But that's what they've been reduced to after their team's second consecutive loss in as many weeks.
