WATCH: The hype video that might have saved Texas’ season
Texas is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to promoting its big win last Saturday against Oklahoma.
So far this week, it has been revealed that in preparation to face Oklahoma last Saturday, Texas coach Charlie Strong handed out a motivational poem to his team called, "Don’t Quit." The athletic department released this highlight video of the 24-17 win at the Cotton Bowl. And assistant coach Jay Norvell sent out a tweet aimed at recruits that bears this great photo of Strong after the game looking a little like Uncle Sam.
We will be on the road this week. Looking for young men with the right stuff.🐂 pic.twitter.com/38rBiYJiWGArticle continues below ...

Now we find out that Strong attempted to hype up his previously beleagured team before facing OU by showing it this well-done video that splices Longhorns highlights — and lowlights, including the 2014 Red River Showdown loss — interspersed with scenes and music from the movie "The Dark Knight."
If the video was the secret to success, hopefully Strong is spending this bye week beefing up Texas’ video department.
