Unbelievable; Longhorns have decided to let go of a great Coach Steve Sarkisian due to..

Playing football at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium can be a daunting task, especially for visiting teams. Since the year 2000, Texas is 112-33 at home.

Recently, EA Sports ranked Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium as the No. 19 toughest place to play in college football. Once upon a time, especially in the 2000 to 2009 era of Longhorns football, it was among the toughest venues to play a game if you were a visitor.

Texas was a combined 56-4 during that decade. They averaged 43 points per game and only gave up an average of 14.8 points.

Only once during this stretch did the Texas defense give up more points than the offense could score, it was during the forgettable 2014 campaign under first-year head coach Charlie Strong.


Last season the Longhorns defense gave up just 12.8 points per game at home, the lowest number since the 2005 national championship team. That season they surrendered just 12.2 points per game, but scored a blistering 54.2 points per game.


For the better part of two-plus decades, Texas has averaged a scoring margin of 17.8. During the first decade of the 2000s, that margin was a massive 28.7 points per game.
