Just one day after suffering a heartbreaking loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys this past Saturday, the Texas Longhorns held a players-only meeting with the hopes of turning around a season that is already looking lost.
The meeting was reported by multiple sources on Twitter, namely Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman and Anwar Richardson of OrangeBloods.com
Texas saying all right things, had hour-long, players-only meeting before practice Sunday. Who talked? "Everybody," DE Naashon Hughes said.

Need to clear up something. Looks like the Texas players-only meeting lasted nearly an hour, not two hours

Texas C Taylor Doyle among leaders who spoke in a players-only meeting Sunday, which went an hour. Several vets said it was good for all.

This can’t be easy for anyone involved, especially the players. Many were probably recruited by former Longhorns coach Mack Brown, so current coach Charlie Strong has probably had a hard time implementing his philosophy as best he can. Moreover, Texas has played quitewell its past two games, only to lose off of silly mistakes: a missed extra point against Cal two weeks ago and because the punter fumbled the snap on fourth down late in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys last weekend.
Hopefully, this meeting got through to some players because Texas is now 1-3 on the season and has a tough matchup on Saturday against the high scoring and No. 4 ranked TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. ET on ABC.
