After an early interception, Quinn Ewers posted strong reads on his debut as starting quarterback for the Texas Longhorns, rushing for 225 yards and two touchdowns in a 52-10 win over the UL Monroe Warhawks on Saturday night.
Unfortunately, Ewers didn’t read the signs in the campus parking lots before the game nearly as well.
Shortly after speaking to reporters late Saturday night, Ewers tweeted that his car had been towed. Ewers’ revelation sparked a predictable backlash against the University of Texas Parking and Transportation Services, which has a reputation for handing out tickets like Ewers passes. Texas linebacker Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey, a transfer from James Madison to the school, chimed in on Twitter.

But Longhorns coach Steve Sarkisian wasn’t nearly as sympathetic. Speaking before Texas’ showdown against top-ranked Alabama on Monday, Sarkisian blamed the young quarterback.
“He has to park where he’s supposed to park,” Sarkisian said. “He wasn’t where he should have parked on the day of the game.”
It is unknown if the Aston Martin from Ewers – complete with a burnt orange leather interior, courtesy of his NIL deals — the car was towed Saturday night.
Bottom line: Ewers might be better off taking the team bus to next week’s game against Alabama.
