What a game! Nobody was sure how good this young Texas team was. Well, it’s official: They’re good.
This game didn’t have the feel of an upset — we outcoached them, outplayed them, and just plain wanted it more. If you want details, read Barking Carnival’s brilliant write-up.
My favorite quote from BC:
I had also been threatening to throw various objects into Sailor’s koi pond if we didn’t win; when we won I continued to threaten to baptize objects in his koi pond. Vandalism is one of the few mechanisms by which a man can both grieve and exult.
This is now officially my favorite Longhorn team ever, and Saturday’s game is #2 on my all time list (behind the 2005 national championship win, of course). We’ve got a lot of tough games ahead but if we can keep our focus and intensity we have a decent chance of running the table.
