Damn, the end of Texas-Oklahoma was not a bright spot for Steve Sarkisian. When it's all said and done, his coaching performance in the last two minutes could be the difference in Texas playing in the Cotton Bowl instead of the College Football Playoff.
I understand considering a run on 3rd and 9 from the 35-yard line, but if you trust your kicker from 47 yards, you can probably take your chances from 52 if you don't get the first down. And if you do get it, now you can run the clock out and kick a field goal to win the game. The reward outweighs the risk by a considerable margin.
But even after Texas took the lead, the Longhorns' defense was playing like they thought they were up by 14 points. I'm not putting that all on Sark, but Dillon Gabriel carved that defense up like it wasn't even there — with no timeouts. Everything Texas did in the last two minutes was a disasterclass.
Texas is still a very good football team and will likely have a chance to avenge this loss in the Big 12 Championship Game, but great teams win that game instead of pissing down their legs when the lights get bright. Sark needs to answer some questions about that one.
