  1. That loss was my first Texas OU. Senior year of high school. mdleast picked me up from my morning SAT exam and we raced over to Fair Park.
  2. James Brown was the first UT QB I fell in love with. That era got me really into UT football. He gave us the highest of highs. "Come To Run" was one of the top 5 plays in my UT sports watching experience. It was so epic, even down to the Musberger call. He backed up his words. It's why I still use the "maybe we beat them by ____ points". He wasn't afraid of anyone. I also was extremely bitter that he and all those guys who helped UT win both the final SWC title and the first Big 12 title were left to have their Senior Day on a bitterly cold November morning against Kansas in 1997 before only 40,000 people. It was also my final home game as a student. I was happy to see the LHN have Mackovic on yesterday to talk about the 1996 Big 12 Championship. I know Johnny Mack was an arrogant guy and rubbed people the wrong way but I'll be damned if you try to take that era of UT football away from me. That started the obsession.
  3. Man, you guys remember that Spring Game not that long ago when people were freaking out that Quinn looked mediocre and Maalik looked all world? Good times.
  4. Man, it's just crazy to think this is an actual reality. And that one massive choice to play Alabama in a home and home was the fuel this team needed. Just like Ohio State was the spark that lit the fuse for the 05 team. I love that we get at least another month to discuss meaningful college football in Austin. It's been far too long.
  5. I'm overdosing on Big 12 fans who are so angry that we not only won our final Big 12 championship but that we also got into the playoff. It's their worst nightmare. All year long they had been pinning their hopes on team after team. Only OU gave them some joy but it was short lived. I'm sure they'll all be Washington fans on New Year's Day.
  6. I got a Rose Bowl shirt from the first Michigan/Texas one since I went to the game and it was awesome just to go to it. But yeah, only thing you buy now are championship shirts. The ones from 2005/2006 are getting up there in years and wear.
  7. You can get your official Texas playoffs Goonies shirt https://shop.texassports.com/mens-fanatics-branded-black-texas-longhorns-2023-college-football-playoff-intensive-skill-t-shirt/p-35009033889166089+z-7-4118781867?_ref=p-CLP:m-GRID:i-r3c2:po-11
  8. Oh, calm down Nancy. Just having some fun at your expense. I'm sure people can go back and find my posts where I doubted Sark too. I appreciate all you do for the program. We all bust balls here.
  9. I thought Aggy Bob was annoying but Bama Davey is pretty terrible too.
  10. Thank you, Spurs, for not going Spursy in the final minutes.
  11. CTJ still reserves the right to hate Sark and think that he's not the guy if we don't win the whole thing.
  12. Oregon was a 9 point favorite. Penix is dangerous. I love PK getting a month to figure it out.
  13. Sure but one spot and that's it. SEC and Big 10 will get 3-4 each year.
  14. Kinda feels like shit is about to heat up again for FSU.
  15. No one thought we'd be here after that 5-7 season. It's really a testament to what Sark built and why you don't freak the fuck out after every loss. It takes time to build something special. It takes sacrifice. It takes patience. It paid off.
  16. Man, the ACC guy is the one who kept them out. NC State is going to be so hated in Florida.
  17. So this game was irrelevant
