The University of Texas – 20 Years Seems like 2 weeks

20 Years ago to the day I was on the UT-Austin campus licking my wounds for not making the football team and wondering what to do about my future.

Friday Night Football was in my blood, this site but I didn’t have the size or the skill, side effects just the desire to play on Saturdays.

To quote John Mackovic, page UT’s new coach: “Son, you’re way too small to be as slow as you are.”  I’m only 5’10″ish and the speed at UT, even in 1992 was staggering. (image courtesy of USAFootball)

Everything turned out great for both the University & myself.  The fiasco tonight will show just how far The University of Texas has come in 20 years.
