Texas 14, OU 63
"Mack Wasn't Right" by The
(Sung to the tune of “Earl had to die”)
Applewhite and Simms were the best of friends, all throughout two-a-days.
Both starters in the back of Mack's mind, both wantin' real bad to play.
After starting against the sooners Applewhite went out, lookin' for a place to hide.
Simms tried to stay calm when he got the call, but all he got was a Rocky ride.
Well it wasn't too long after OU got up, that the Horns started gettin' abused.
And many Longhorn fans just up and left, because they knew that they were going to lose.
Major finally got the nerve to complete a pass, can you believe the Horns actually scored.
But OU walked right back down the field, and put another seven up on the board.

What's the point of this hallmark moment, absolutely f*cking nothing. The Horns got destroyed and guess what, next week they might get destroyed again. Sooner or later they'll turn it around and if not, there's always next year. So when those sorry Sooner bastards are circling the chuck wagons and dragging you through the mud this week, just smile and say congratulations, we'll see you next year and guess what, "OU still sucks".
