I had to watch the Texas GIF three times before I noticed that quick almost-pan by the camera.

Aw, too late, buddy. Your instincts betrayed you.

The score at the bottom tells part of the story, but doesn’t accurately convey how spectacularly Texas were falling apart at the time. The delay in dropping the expletive summarizes the game perfectly. I think most neutrals expected Oklahoma to win, but no one expected Texas to crumble in the manner they did. It was exceptional. It’s a game perfectly summarized in one GIF.

Texas fan is your standard "10 seed ready to make a run".
