Social media roasts Texas's Heisman-themed tweet featuring Steve Sarkisian
Some Twitter users were none too happy with the tweet the Texas Longhorns’ official football account put out on Tuesday night shortly after Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith was named the 2020 Heisman Trophy winner.
And it wasn’t just Alabama fans that were displeased with it, either. Or decided to roast the Longhorns’ social media team.
Of course, new head coach Steve Sarkisian hasn’t had the reins of the Texas football program for long, with the former Alabama offensive coordinator—set to be on the Crimson Tide sidelines in Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game against Ohio State—just this past Sunday being named to his first head coaching role since being fired from Southern Cal in October 2015. But that didn’t stop the Horns from a tweet hosting credit on him for Smith’s Heisman victory and Najee Harris’ finalist finish.
That didn’t sit well with both Tide and Longhorns fans, who lit up the Texas Twitter account to make their feelings known.

No. Don’t take credit for another team’s awards. We’re not Aggies.

My favorite is a coach’s new team claiming the success of the hired coach as if it was their own. https://t.co/88XR0qBfZp
