Texas DL Malcolm Roach on the offsides penalty that set up Iowa State's game-winning FG:— Jeff Barker (@JeffBarker_) November 19, 2019
"I was just trying to make a play for the team and block the kick."
"I probably never felt like that after a loss before."

Listening to Malcolm choke up and seeing the disappoint in his eyes tells you everything you need to know. These dudes genuinely care. They’ve been grinding since August to bring their team, school and city a Championship. And letting people down sucks.
Roach doesn’t jump offsides the Iowa State kicker probably doesn’t make the 45+ yarder and even if he does we’d have plenty of time left to get ourselves in field goal positions. Roach knows it, you know it, I know it, his mom knows it. She gave him solid advice though — move on. There‘s no point of dwelling on the penalty at this point, it is what it is. We aren’t playing for a Big 12 Championship or National Title. So, let’s just go kick Baylor’s ass.
