Ehlinger noted he did not remember what he said to Murray after the game only generally saying he was telling the Oklahoma quarterback “great game.”
“Oh, I went up to him and congratulate him on a great game. That was all,” Ehlinger told Austin American-Statesman. “I respect his game and that was it…Ah, I can’t really remember…I don’t remember what I said.”
When asked whether Murray respected Ehlinger’s game, Murray declined to comment. This prompted Ehlinger to tweet “OK cool. Hook em!”
“I’d absolutely love to comment on that [respecting Murray’s game],” Ehlinger explained to the Austin American-Statesman. “I absolutely respect his game.”
When asked about the exchange, Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu had strong words about the rival quarterback.
“I guess ol’ boy don’t like losing,” Omenihu told the Houston Chronicle. “His comment yesterday, I’m not surprised that he said that. If you know him or you know how he is, it’s not surprising. To be honest with you, I really don’t care. It’s funny to me, actually. I saw it and started laughing. ”
