Texas fell short in heartbreaking fashion at the hands of the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday afternoon. 

However, there's still some optimism the Longhorns can have a good season. At least Matthew McConaughey thinks so. 

The well-known actor and Texas football diehard has a message for the Longhorns following Saturday's disappointing outcome. 

"we played some great football today - a total TEAM effort and true Texas fight - the future of @TexasFootball looks bright - we are on our way - horns up and hearts high #hookem," said McConaughey. 

Well said, Matthew. He's right, too. 

If Texas can play like it did on Saturday on a consistent basis it's going to be a fun year.
