Remember that time Texas Longhorns athletic director Chris del Conte’s flight was canceled, so he had to catch a ride with a Texas fan all the way to Milwaukee to catch last season’s men’s basketball team face the Virginia Tech Hokies in the NCAA Tournament?
Welp, del Conte is at it again. This time, thanks for Texas’ marketing geniuses.
