This is what the senior safety told Longhorn beat reporters after the game:
“We knew it was going to be a dogfight. It was frustrating because we left a lot on the table and there were a lot of things we could have taken advantage of, so, whatever man. I played my ass off.”

I do like how silent Tavon Austin was when lined up against Kenny..
As a leader of the defense you don't wanna hear him Say "I" to much unless he takes responsibility for lack of production on defense.
I wonder if he regrets now staying his senior season.
Seems to be the Motto for the bunch on that side of the ball.
BTW, really sad when you can play your ass off but get so little out of it. What a strange year.
Hook 'Em! ...'til early in the morn.
Agree. I think Manny may be starting to lose his players' trust. If the D "loses it's spirit", then we are in even worse trouble. A lot of frustration starting to boil over.
He won't come out and say it but he is very frustrated with how the young guys are playing and the defensive schemes! I guess we as fans are as well!
That comment might be more insightful to the defense than I would care to admit. Shows a shocking lack of leadership from what is supposed to be a leader on this team. This is a defense that is talented, but does not seem to be on the same page. Now you have a leader saying we lost, but I did everything I could.
If we had this years offense with last years defense minus the OU & Baylor game (those two games were lost purely on defensive scheme) we would have a championship season. Of course, these are all "what if's"! Just fustrated is all!! Hookem!
and then he spent the entire evening re-tweeting tweets of how awesome he was after a devestating loss
I agree that there are scheme issues, but the bigger problem to me is the lack of personal accountability on the defense. On one hand you have Ash loading it all on his shoulders. On the other, you have KV who isn't even playing that great imo, passing it off.
Pretty obvious to me at this point that alot of our defensive players(Byndom, Phillips) spent too much time reading about how good they are instead of working to get better.
Just my frustrated opinion
Thought Thompson flashed a little on d btw
Don't be afraid to ride the lightning.
Those two got beat the most because they are the slowest in the secondary i would actually prefer Gideon over Philips
I agree about Gideon, which is funny because I was one of the BIGGEST critics.
I've been around Kenny on several occasions and he is a punk through and through. Good football player though.
He's pissed b/c his draft stock is falling. Most of that is due to the positions Diaz is putting him and others in. Essentially Diaz is putting a lot of tape out there highlighting players weaknesses.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!
- Jeff Howe
Which is part of the problem.....
Does this quote really surprise anyone? He's a great football player, but I don't think any of us would choose him to mentor others or be a leader of men, and we've known that for 4 years.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
