I'm sure many of you have not forgotten the last time the Bruins came to Austin. The year was 1997, which now seems like centuries ago. Since that time, the Bruins and Horns have gone in opposite directions. The only thing the two programs have in common is that since 1998, each has beaten U$C once.
Please be assured that all Bruin fans are greatly indebted to the Burnt Orange Nation for your Rose Bowl victory over that now-disgraced Trojan team. Having said that, we come to Austin this week feeling like we're going to have to pay for that beatdown in "97. Our victory last night over Houston, a far from flawless performance by the Bruins, gives us some reason to believe that the Bruins can play with the Horns on Saturday. Good luck to both teams.
Four friends and I are coming to Austin for the game. Last year, we went to Knoxville to watch the Bruins beat the Vols and Lame Kiffin. We were overwhelmed by the unmitiagted hospitality and generosity of the Tennessee faithful. We expect no less from the Horns' fans this weekend.
I have a couple of questions:
1) Where is the best tailgating area? We have no interest in hanging out with Bruin fans (we do it all the time) and want to experience what Texas football is all about.
2) In order to get into the prime tailgate area, how early should we arrive? I understand the game is set for 2:30.
We look forward to a great time not only on Saturday but also all weekend long in Austin. There's no need for you guys to seek revenge for what happened 13 years ago. After all, you beat us at Pauley a few years back. Can we call it even?
Thanks for your responses to this post and I look forward to meeting some of you this Saturday.
