Texas sinks to new low point in complete annihilation by TCU | Sports Illustrated

These words, they are beautiful.

This was a beatdown of the highest order, a complete and utter pulverization that will leave Texas reeling long after its ride back to Austin. The game was effectively over less than 10 minutes in.

Trevone Boykin tosses 5 TDs in TCU blowout of Texas | ESPN

Boykin is tied for the most passing touchdowns in the FBS this season (19) and fourth in passing yards (1,802). He also rewrote the TCU record books yesterday.

Boykin threw for 332 yards without playing in the fourth quarter, and his 74 career touchdown passes are three more than Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had from 2007 to 2010.

Boykin broke Dalton's record, and then gave him the ultimate shoutout.

"He has great character and represents TCU well, and I hope I can do the same thing," Boykin said of Dalton, now with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Boykin has more words on breaking Dalton's record.

"I didn’t even think about it during the game, but to be in the same category with someone like Andy is such a blessing and an honor," said Boykin, who threw five touchdown passes in staking the Horned Frogs to a 50-0 lead before he and Doctson sat out the fourth quarter.

TCU humiliates Texas to regain look of playoff team | Big Mac Blog

Interesting thoughts.

The biggest development for the Frogs is that in the process of making Texas look like Kansas, for the first time this season TCU played like the Top 5 and College Football Playoff team it was projected to be. Despite the numerous injuries, and the road games coming up, TCU has the look of a team that can reach the final four.

Twitter reacts: The best jokes from TCU's 50-7 beatdown of Texas | CBS Sports

Some of these are pretty good, but I'm disappointed I didn't make the list.

But there was no drama in TCU's 50-7 throttling of Texas -- only jokes. The game was ugly and over early. When #BEATEMDOWN's like this take place, Twitter is usually the best spot for humorous commentary on the on-field action.

Boykin Throws 5 TDs, No. 3 TCU Blows Out Texas 50-7 |

The shutout would have been so, so great.

The Longhorns (1-4, 0-2), plagued by special teams mistakes for the third straight game, scored a late touchdown to avoid matching the second-worst shutout loss in school history - 50-0 to Oklahoma 107 years ago. The worst was in 1904, by 68 to the University of Chicago.

Texas' Perspective

Texas quotable: "We don't know how to compete" | Dallas Morning News

Strong is standing on shaky ground.

"We came out today and just didn't play hard. Just simple fundamental techniques ... we're looking for more leadership. We need to do a better job of coaching and we've got to get this turned around. We have no choice."

This was, apparently, all about Texas' ineptitude and not about TCU.

Regardless of your choice of poison, it's all equally destructive, as whatever hope and goodwill remained from the two close losses against Cal and Oklahoma State evaporated with a quickness on a gorgeous day at Amon Carter Stadium in Fort Worth.

Shooting from the Hip: TCU 50, Texas 7 | Barking Carnival

Texas is a bad football team.

Whatever gumption this team brought into Amon G. Carter following last week's unjust affair went by the wayside in a heartbeat as the worst of all possible starts brought the Horns low long before high noon.  Even allowing for that borderline-comical degree of misfortune, it was disconcerting to see Texas fail at any real effort to climb off the mat.

This is pretty bad.

The Texas Longhorns got demolished 37-0 in the first half by the TCU Horned Frogs amidst special teams mistakes and numeorus other meltdowns on offense and defense, so what did freshman cornerback Kris Boyd spend his halftime doing?
