Some Texas soccer fans have braved the 95-degree heat to camp for front-row seats against Alabama, ready to “storm the field after beating Nick Saban.”
Rule #1 in college football is no, you don’t actually want bama.
Rule #2 is: Never, ever bet against Nick Saban in an off-conference matchup early in the season.
Someone didn’t tell Texas Football these rules soon enough this year.
The fact that Longhorns fans braved the Austin heat and humidity to camp two days before Steve Sarkisian’s team welcomes the Alabama Crimson Tide to DKR isn’t that surprising.
It’s a huge matchup to compete in. The dedication of these fans is exactly why college football is so wonderful.
Still… boys and girls. Be real here.
The image shared by Stewart Mandel showed a lot more water than alcoholic beverages, so these kids are hydrated and apparently sober. They can’t even blame the “storming the field” comment for being drunk.
Texas doesn’t charge the field against Alabama because Texas doesn’t beat Alabama. Even the most optimistic Longhorn fan should know this.
The Miami Hurricanes thought they could pull it off last year. The result? 44-13 Bama.
In 2018, Louisville felt Saban’s wrath. The result? 51-14 Bama.
USC met Alabama in Arlington in 2016. Some Trojans thought they would give the tide a chance. The result? 52-6 Bama.
The closest non-conference opponent since 2016 was Florida State, with a 24-7 loss in 2017.
Perhaps Texas fans are preparing to charge the field after a 17-point loss? Beating the 20-point spread is realistically the only thing the Longhorns will celebrate on Sunday.
