Parking in certain parts of our great country can be a nightmare for many Americans. Maybe you parked illegally in the wrong lot or space, had the time run out on your meter or had to spend minutes out of your day just to find a spot. One thing we can all agree on is that there is no worse feeling than coming outside to find your vehicle has been towed. Texas Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers found that out the hard way.
Ewers and the Longhorns routed Louisiana-Monroe 52-10 on Saturday. But when he went to get his car after the game, he noticed something — it wasn’t there. And following Saturday’s game, the Texas quarterback asked one simple question on Twitter — “How’d I get towed during the game?”

That got a lot of attention on Twitter and away from it.
His coach, Steve Sarkasian, didn’t seem to have a lot of sympathy for Ewers on Monday, believing that his quarterback should’ve known better than to park illegally.
“He’s gotta park where he’s supposed to park.”

His running back Bijan Robinson also poked had some fun at Ewers’ expense, admitting to reporters that he doesn’t even drive to games, he get’s dropped off.

Ewers had an impressive showing against the Warhawks, completing 16-of-24 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the dominant 52–10 victory.
We’ll see if that production will translate against a more formidable opponent as the Longhorns host No. 1 ranked Alabama at home next weekend in arguably the biggest challenge they’ll face all season.
