Another Longhorn Blog...

This is actually the first time I've dedicated a blog to the Longhorns. I was a Southwest Texas State Bobcat. My sister was an Aggie. My parents went to college in Ohio (Bowling Green). Not much family love for the burnt orange... but I've got to admit. Oh My God.. what an amazing game.

In fact, before the Bobcats made the playoffs this year and ended up 4th overall in the 1-AA polls I didn't care much about college football as a whole.

Well.. the University of Texas Longhorns won the Rose Bowl national championship. Awesome.
As my friend Brian, a Texas-Ex who was in the stands in Pasadena, text messaged me late last night... "Unbelievable."

Instead of my non-sports-knowing self trying to wax poetic on the game. I'll let the "experts" do the talking.
