A Texas/OU Weekend Thought

October 15, 2009 — 5 Comments

This is a special time for college football. It is Texas/OU Weekend where the Longhorns and Sooners go after each other on the football gridiron at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Both teams are of such high quality that recent games have affected National Championship chances. If you love college football, this usually is a can’t-miss game. The fact that I have good friends on both sides of the stadium makes this game all the better. Who do I root for? Pretty simple, really. I’m a native Texan, my relatives are predominantly Longhorn graduates (e.g., grandfather, uncles, cousins, etc.)  and last but certainly not least, my wife is a UT alum. So…Hook ‘Em Horns!

But no matter who you root for this weekend (if anyone), here is a video that reminds us of what really is important (Hint: Not football) – courtesy of Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford, quarterbacks for UT and OU, respectively.
