Bringing It Back to Austin, Baby

41-38. Still happily blogging in burnt orange today.

I had so much adrenaline going after the game it was hard to go to sleep. Amazing. Wow. Unreal.

Vince Young is such an exciting player to watch – I don’t think he ever doubted he was going to pull it off, and of course he did just like he always does. He’s even more fun to watch than Applewhite was.

It’s been great watching the Horns exorcise their demons this year: top ten teams (Ohio State, Texas Tech), Oklahoma, The Big XII Championship, scares against OSU and A&M. Mack and the coaching staff have done amazing things despite a few mistakes in previous seasons, and Vince Young has led this team as I’ve never seen any other player do before.

Only nine more months until the next game. Can’t wait.

Hook ’em.


  1. You have no idea how unpleasant our staff meeting was today because of the Longhorns. 😉

  2. I can imagine. We’ve had many meetings ruined by Oklahoma down here.

  3. That was THE game for the ages. I didn’t really care which team won, I watched the whole game. I know Vince will go for the money, but I’m hoping he changes his mind and comes back. What a player.

  4. Sadly, we found out this morning that he’s off to the NFL. Good luck to him.
