For the second week in a row, the University of Texas special teams just weren’t all that special. I have no idea what the punter was thinking as the ball sailed toward his head after being snapped, but it certainly wasn’t about football. I heard the heavy metal band Tia Carrera was in town (not to be confused with Tia Carrere the actress) so perhaps he was just as confused as I was trying to figure out if I should head down to 7th Street or not.
In years past, when Mack Brown was in town, Texas always found a way to come out ahead. Whether it was an opportune interception or an opposing player forgetting that Vince Young could fly, wins came in the form of a burnt orange side of beef.
