Big 12 Notebook: Longhorns know all the stops on road to recovery

The most oft-used line around UT after a defeat is a Brown directive: “Don’t let a team beat you twice.” Yeah, we know, Texas has let OU beat it five times in a row, but that’s not the point.

Brown says this to his players so they’ll understand that the OU game is over and the loss is in the books. While fans and media will continue to harp on the failure for weeks to come, the team has to move on, or other losses will follow.

1. Can the Hawkeyes put last week behind them and rebound?
There is an old saying in coaching and that is don’t let a team beat you twice. If you want evidence this season of a team beating an opponent twice, then just look at Michigan and what happened to them in the first two weeks. While Oregon was a quality opponent and certainly could have won that game, Michigan gave it them in the first half by letting the stunning loss to Appalachian State linger. Iowa has to avoid letting the loss last weekend to ISU beat them this week and put that one in the rearview mirror. If they don’t this one could end up looking a lot like what happened to Michigan.

As a coach, getting a team to bounce back from an emotional loss can be easier than you think. The cliché “Don’t let a team beat you twice”—meaning, don’t let the hangover from one loss cause another the next week—is a bit overrated. For teams accustomed to winning, a loss is so bitter a team has no choice but to focus. The motivation takes care of itself. Those who haven’t lived in a town that has a big-time program don’t appreciate how gloomy it is after a loss; it permeates everything.

Vanderbilt Commodores Should Bounce Back Against Austin Peay

An old coaching cliche says that you don’t let a team beat you twice. That is the situation Vanderbilt will try to prevent this weekend when they host Austin Peay in Nashville. The ‘Dores cannot have a hangover from the tough loss to Ole Miss and let a team like Austin Peay sneak up on them.

There’s an old saying in football, “Don’t let a team beat you twice.” Ole Miss should take notice. Stop whining and get on with life.
