This Is What College Football Is About
Goshdarnit, that was a gut-bustin, rip-snortin, sidewinder of a game. Most points scored ever in this matchup. A kickoff return and a missed field goal popped the Aggies' balloon and sure, I wish the Aggies had won, but even so it was a great game. I am so, so proud of those guys. But let's give Texas its due. The Horns generally and McCoy in particular rose up and showed why Texas is No. 3 in the country. They made only one error (lost a punt) and didn't lose their cool. Congrats to sbaskind and all Horns fans. Take care of the Huskers and you'll be playing for the National Championship.
As for the Ags, they should be confident going into whatever bowl game they draw. Also, playing well on ESPN on Thanksgiving against the No. 3 team should help recruiting (wishful thinking, much?). Final word: Jerrod Johnson played lights out last night. I hope someone out there saw how good this guy is.
