What a summer it's been for former Longhorn football players...
First, VY lashes out at some fool who makes the singularly stupid mistake of flashing that weakest of all hand signs at him. You know the hand sign that is first cousin to "t.u.", that weakest of all retorts...
Then, Ced Benson allegedly punches a Sixth Street barkeep, then gets arrested for it a month later. I don't know the circumstances of the events of that fateful night, but if the Library's bar tenders were indicative of your average Sixth Street 'keeps, I don't know what Benson was thinking.
Finally, there's Phil's son who was arrested last night (or this morning) for driving under the influence of marijuana.
"Smoking pot and driving? What's that if not the result of growing up in a laissez-faire atmosphere?"
I have no idea what has gotten into these UT guys. VY gets some props for not allowing the brand to be besmirched, but then again, it was 3 a.m. at a scrip club. Nothing good happens at 3 a.m. at a scrip club.
That's 3 former Longhorn greats (Phil's son gets the nod only by "association") who have run afoul of the law and it's only July 1st.
Summer has 2 months left, plenty of time for say, Dusty Mangum to get picked up for breaking and entering.
