The Longhorns “don’t play fast,” according to Gundy, but if they did, they could score 50 points a night.

According to Gundy, “They’re (scoring) 35 per game.” “They play slowly. They would, in my opinion, be (scoring) about 50 points per game if they played quickly because they would get more numbers and snaps.”

Saying a team doesn’t “play fast” is more of an observation than an insult. Notwithstanding Gundy’s intentions, Texas fans may take offense at his remarks regarding Sark’s “All Gas, No Brakes” maxim.

Perhaps the players will also be. Taking Gundy’s remarks as a “insult” could be in the Longhorns’ best interest, even though it’s a stretch to call them that. Any kind of additional motivation will be crucial if they have their sights set on the conference title win that the CFP selection committee will see.

Nevertheless, despite OSU’s inconsistent play this season, it is obvious that the Longhorns and Sarkisian shouldn’t underestimate what a Gundy-coached team is capable of. Over the previous two years, Gundy has managed to pull off one-score victories over Texas; on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT, he will try to accomplish it again.
