We did it...

Today, I was in Dallas. I was at the game. I saw it happen. What a proud day to be a Longhorn. What a great senior year. These last three seasons of Mack Brown Texas Football have been his three worst, and I won't lie and say I haven't largely been disappointed with this team during my time here. But victories - victories like today's - are what remind me why I am who I am and why I cheer for whom I cheer. The Texas Longhorns have had more victories like these than any other team I've ever watched in my life. It's honestly an inspiration and has been a driving force for me personally. That's what my team represents. These are the down years - I get that. After 12 years of Mack Brown giving us 10+ win seasons, three BCS bowl wins and one national championship, Texas was due a couple of hard times. But games like today instill in my heart the pride I've felt in my team since I first remember watching my Horns play Nebraska for the conference championship in 1996. We're a team that never gives up and never stops surprising, and I'm proud to say I take after the University of Texas Longhorns in that regard. Will we lose more games this season? Probably. Is Mack Brown out? It's likely. But it runs deeper than the season and deeper than the coach. What I saw in those stands as the sun blazed and the crowd roared...what I felt, was the soul; the soul of a program that is unchanging regardless of who is at the helm or who is the opponent. I love my Longhorns, and today they paid in recompense a senior year spectacle that I will never forget in exchange for the last three years. The Eyes of Texas are upon you, till Gabriel blows his horn.
