You've always been a great inspiration to look up to with your positivity and discipline. It's a blessing to have you as a father.

UT Alum working a UT game? Terrible. The big 12 may as well move it's offices to Austin.

You might recall Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit wondering aloud whether or not Crabtree stayed inbounds the whole time on that play. But in just about every highlight, you could see the ref standing near the pylon staring at the sideline and the three pairs of feet that were stabbing the area near it. And said ref confidently threw his arms up when Crabtree crossed the goal line. He knew he got it right. Nice to know it was one of our own from El Paso.

Good job on what has to be 2008's best play and congrats on the career.

And typical, I admit it's strange to have a UT alum working a UT game, but he made the call the other way. That's gotta count for something.

Jason, who are you referring to? I don't think anyone has mentioned Texas winning.
