Longhorns were ‘a very relaxed crew’ late in win over Texas Tech

Texas head coach Tom Herman spoke with the media Monday. Here are five takeaways from what he said:

Cool and collected

Herman said postgame that senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger told him “they left us too much time” before Ehlinger led the stunning late comeback victory over Texas Tech.

According to Herman, the entire team was relaxed despite being down 15 with just over three minutes to play.

“I wasn’t real stressed, I think I smiled at our athletic director who was standing on the sideline,” Herman said. “We were a very relaxed crew, even when adversity was hitting us from every side.”

It took a perfect bounce on an onside kick and two special drives from Ehlinger, but the Longhorns scored 15 points in the final 3:13 to push the game to overtime. Herman said no members of the team lost belief that they could come back and win.

Oppo Watch review: Late to the party, but a solid debut from smartphone newcomer

The good

The Oppo looks, well, like a smartwatch. The polished, black glass screen and rubber band are simple, sleek and refined. Call it uninspired if you will, but there isn’t much wriggle room to defy expectations in smartwatch design aesthetics.

As far as the profile goes, I actually quite liked the size and shape. It didn’t feel bulky on my wrist, was wearable throughout the day, and I found myself using it as I would a regular watch: to check the time. 

Android’s WearOS software makes using the Oppo Watch intuitive and straightforward, with no additional bells and whistles. In short, the software is about as groundbreaking as the design. There’s no point in reinventing the wheel.

Switching between apps is easy and responding to text and Facebook messages using the handy voice input was fun, even if it made me look like Inspector Gadget. 

Be warned, though, talking
