Texas Longhorns athletic director Chris Del Conte must have told himself he’d be damned if he was going to miss the Longhorns take on the Virginia Tech Hokies in the first round of the NCAA Tournament after weather delayed two of his scheduled flights to Milwaukee.
So, he hitched a ride with two other Texas fans.
