Texas  sent out a tweet meant to praise the Longhorn student section. Instead, it embarrassed it.  It’s not a good look that it took Alabama coming to town for this to happen.

People Immediately Mocked Texas For The Tweet

Of course, the irony is how in the world is a school the size and the football prestige of the Longhorns experiencing a sellout in the student section for the first time? I went to Penn State. Our student tickets sell out in 20 minutes. Same for most other big-time programs.

 

Apparently not at Texas.

@purpleperry420 on twitter points out just how sad it is.

@btillery2, an Oklahoma fan, took his shot at the Longhorns.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>You finally did it!

Also, @Its_Me_AU_Creed pointed out how different it is in SEC country.

But, matter the final score of the Alabama-Texas game, this will make people change their perceptions on Texas students.
