Houdini Horns?

While doing some light reading this morning on Wikipedia, I came across this tidbit:

Escapology is the practice of escaping from restraints or other traps. Escapologists (also called escape artists) escape from handcuffs, straitjackets, cages, steel boxes, barrels, bags, burning buildings, fish-tanks and other perils, often in combination.

Some escapologists' tricks are accomplished by illusionists' techniques; others are genuine acts of flexibility, strength and daring.

The most famous escapologist is, of course Harry Houdini. Until now. Given yesterday's 4th quarter performance in Stillwater and the eerily similar one the week before in Austin, are the 2007 Texas Longhorns the greatest escape artists ever?

Or is that title still held by the 2004 version, and the Comeback King himself, Mr. Vince Young? Witness the Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State, (most infamously) Kansas, and (most thrilling) Michigan games.

Or the 2005 version, with Ohio State, Oklahoma State (again) and the greatest Texas victory of all time, over USC?
