the Easter Bunny, the Force, God, karma:
This last couple of times I was this amped up for a recruit to join the Burnt Orange was for Vince Young (I remember also wanting Reggie McNeal at the time) and Darrell Scott.
While Vince turned out to be better than advertised and McNeal had his moments, Darrell Scott turned out to be a monumental disappointment. Therefore I am somewhat cautious, yet highly optimistic, of DGB's potential.
I try not to be overly excited about a recruit signing and becoming a Longhorn icon. After all, who saw Major and Colt becoming legends? Some guys turn out to be a bust, some never develop, and some have good, but not great careers.
If DGB does not sign with Texas I will be disappointed, but life goes on and I am super pumped about the incoming class and the future looks very bright. I wish DGB the best, as he has clearly handled the limelight and pressure very well for an 18 year old kid.
Let it be known that if DGB does end up in the SEC, I will be rooting for you on Saturday's - but I will clearly NOT be rooting for your team (since indications point to Misery and Sooeyville). If it is Misery, become accustomed to Pinkel's continuous blunders. If it is Sooeyville, enjoy your one year with Wilson.
Therefore to show that I am not selfish, I am proposing that all of this year's haul (Christmas, Easter, President's Day, Flag Day, Armistice Day and all the other days of bounty) be withheld from my doorstep. In exchange, bring DGB to Austin.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Hook 'em !!!!!!!
