Steve Sarkisian Apologizes For Abandoning Texas Football Tradition On Saturday

Steve Sarkisian, Texas Longhorns Football

Steve Sarkisian, Texas head football coach, was not a happy camper following the Longhorns' 41-34 loss to Oklahoma State last Saturday. 

Sark left the field without singing "The Eyes of Texas." It's a postgame tradition, win or loss, for players and coaches to sing the song with fans. 

The Texas head football coach abandoned the tradition following a tough loss to the Cowboys last Saturday. 

He apologized for his mistake on Monday afternoon. 

"Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian said he'd like to apologize to Longhorn Nation for not signing The Eyes of Texas. Said he was upset with the way the game ended and walked off the field. Said the players followed his lead and that won't happen again," said Anwar Richardson. 

This is a big deal for Texas football fans, and it speaks volume that Steve Sarkisian left it behind because of a loss. 

To make matters worse, players followed Sarkisian's example and left the field as well. 

It appears Texas football's culture is crumbling. How will the Longhorns respond?
