Struggling 'Horns 'Not Going to Quit'
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Texas coach Rick Barnes says anyone wondering whether his young team may begin to stray emotionally after an 0-5 Big 12 start doesn't know the makeup of his players. The Longhorns (8-10, 0-5 in Big 12) are off to their worst Big 12 start after Monday's 73-67 loss at Oklahoma. "We're not going to lose guys [emotionally]," Barnes said during Monday's morning teleconference. "I think we've done too good a job recruiting to know what the makeup of these guys are. I think sometimes people who ask questions like that haven't been around enough. These guys are invested too much. I'm telling you they're not going to quit. They can't. Again, we won't let them, but I don't think it's a matter of us not letting them. These kids have some pride now."
