Mostly conjecture on Dallas radio from Texas fans (orange heads) who hate Mac Brown.

Good point, Eddie P - any UT fan who blasts their school for this should be commended. I generally think UT fans are the pompous, arrogant bunch described in this thread of posts, because, well, they usually are. But if there are some orangeheads out there who are as offended by their baseball team’s behavior as we are, they should be congratulated for having class that exceeds that of most UT types.

Horn ’Em, Hookers!
The hellish heat. The cold beer. The cheerleaders bouncing around like howler monkeys on PCP. Was I really ready for some football? Texas versus Iowa State versus me.

GOSH, HOW I LOVED FOOTBALL games when I was a grad student at the University of Texas. I was the biggest football nut going. I lived for game day. I and the other supernerdettes residing in a co-op boarding house two blocks from campus counted the minutes until kickoff. Why? Because that’s when all the bellowing Burnt-Orange-heads would get the hell out of our neighborhood. Ah, bliss!
