Unlike the vast majority of students at UT, I was fortunate enough to have a freshman year where the UT football team ended as National Champions. The day Vince Young announced he was going into the NFL draft, I am pretty sure a small part of me died inside thinking that we would never win again.
But here we are again, ranked No. 1 in the country after beating down OU and then giving Chase Daniels a humiliating back-to-back loss. It is all very exciting, I think, even for those of us who are not all into the football mentality. Just this last Friday, I was walking to the UT women’s soccer game, and at 6:30 p.m. there were ALREADY people lining up for ESPN game day. Now, I did not wake up before sunrise the next morning just to go scream obnoxiously, but I do applaud those who had the school spirit and got on TV.
