The “Eyes of Texas” controversy reached a boiling point last summer for the Texas Longhorns.

So much so that when players at first protested the song, a few members of Texas’ alumni circles reached out to some players to make threats, according to recent social media posts from Texas junior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown and former safety Caden Sterns.
