This GIF Sums Up Texas' First Half, And Maybe Their Whole Season

When historians write the story of the 2012 Texas Longhorns, it will be a short story.

There was a lazy, underhanded pass.

That pass hit someone in the face.

Everybody else stood there frozen, and watched the ball sail right out of bounds.

Hilarity is what happens when good men do nothing.

Failpass

Texas started slow against Cincinnati today -- like, scoring only two points in 10 minutes -- but they've recovered to close the margin to 15 late in the first half, so it's not over yet. If they win, it'll be the best comeback of the tournament so far. If they lose, then ... This might be the first time a .GIF has ever encapsulated an entire program's season.

Ladies and gentleman, Rick Barnes' Texas Longhorns!
