  1. I've been both a t-shirt fan and an alum. Never apologized for a minute about being a fan without attending. Dropped out oh HS and joined the AF in Jan 1958. My best friend for HS always knew he wanted to go to Texas and get a law dgree (which he did). We were classmates at Lubbock HS. Because of him and because everyone in the AF who wasn't from Texas would always pull for any team playing a college from Texas I became a UT fan, and the UT-OU game in '58 sealed the deal. I stayed in the AF for 7 1/2 years and when I got out I moved to Dallas to work in electronics (I had been a radar technician on B-52s). In January 1968 I started to night school at UTA and finished up two years there. I had good grades and a nice SAT score so I was able to get into UT (the real one). My chief regret is that I got my degree too quickly. I entered UT with 41 hours of credit in January 1970 and graduated in August 1971 with a degree in Finance (Honors). My course load by semester: Spring '70 - 15 hours Summer '70 - 12 hours Fall '70 - 18 hours and placed out of an English class Spring '71' - 18 hours Summer '71 - 15 hours Loved every freaking minute of it. Went to all of the football, basketball and most of the baseball games.
  2. I had no idea he was into pot. Happy birthday SHA!
  3. Every time that idiot gets on a board he causes a boatload of problems.
  4. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I just saw a tweet from OU with him in an OU jersey doing a Horns down.
  5. Gee, I can't understand why anyone thought we needed a running thread on the BU fiasco. Everyone knows it was all over blown. I hope I conveyed my sarcasm. Those BU supporters are some sick F****.
  6. I got mine through a friend so I too will be there. Bastards are staying at the Mark Hopkins, so I will sell my oldest son and spend one night there. Anyone know of a tailgate for the game. BTW, since I live in NorCal the PAC would be great for me.
  7. That must be the game where I met you and Joe.
  8. I'll add my voice to this chorus. IDMAS.
  9. I have it and it cost me nothing. Don't know where you are going but there is a download that is free, I guess you can upgrade, but there's no reason to do that.
  10. Download Adblock plus and you won't have any issues.
  11. Collie Station should be on there just because you might lose IQ points from being around all the pinheads.
  12. How can we be sure he isn't Juan Grande incognito?
  13. Some people see a silver lining, and some only see their own assholes.
  14. I was definitely a nay-sayer, but this game very often has some weird twists. Congrats on keeping the faith.
  15. This team is showing LIFE, and I was obviously FOS.
  16. I really appreciate your weekly updates. I don't follow Texas HS sports very closely, but there are certain teams I like to keep up with. Since I live out of state the information is somewhat difficult to find without searching the internet.
  17. I drink the Kool-Aid almost every year and it is something in my blood. My feelings about the team are like a yoyo gone wild, and at least until we are blown out of the water (if that happens) I will remain hopeful.
  18. How is stating things as I see them whining?
  19. I have seen nothing on either side of the ball to make me think there is any hope for this particular coaching staff and the HC must take the brunt of the blame. The only spark so far has been Heard's performance in game three, but that seems tohave been a one-time occurrence. Rice outgained us by a wide margin, and although that was skewed because of how our special teams performed, Rice is a TERRIBLE team. Maybe firing all of the assistant coaches would provide some answers, but Strong does not seem to be capable of surrounding himself with competent people. If someone will point out any facet of the game where there may be something to be hopeful about I would really like to hear about it.
  20. You forgot the most obvious take away, the refs taking the game away from the field.
  21. Utah is pounding the crap out of Oregon in Autzen, 41-14. Who would have ever guessed that?
  22. SHA, you were damned near spot on about TCU, and you still have a shot at Ky over Mizzou.
  23. Probably got trapped on a Juan-Way street.
