An Unbalanced View

I was a Longhorn fan my entire life. A Baylor Bear fan as well, which is sadder. But, I was surrounded by friends and family who were Texas alum. I was part of a Longhorn social network; not a lot of Aggies at the Christmas parties I attended growing up. I go to a University of Texas medical school. I’m a Texas fan when they’re not playing USC. But, with crazy ass views like this, I hope that USC wins its next two games, puts last year’s Rose Bowl in perspective, and sends UT fans like those posting on BON over the edge.

A little vengeful, for sure. But you have to admit, the comment below is just ridiculous.

This post is following news that University of Texas backup QB Jevan Snead is transferring…

[I]f [starting QB] McCoy’s not good to go (or if the staff wisely decides to play it safe), who can Texas turn to? You can forget burning Sherrod Harris’ redshirt – that won’t happen. Who does that leave? Texas either plays walk-on third stringer Matt McCoy or goes with Quan Cosby. Yes – flanker Quan Cosby.

Going with Cosby would make for great entertainment, but of course if I’m advocating shutting down McCoy out of a desire to see the 2007 team protected, it hardly makes sense to advocate starting Cosby behind center. I’m almost to the point of suggesting that Texas’ decline its bowl invitation. Honestly, there’s just nothing left to gain.

The message: if you can’t play for it all, take your ball and go home. Great reaction. And USC is the University of Spoiled Children.
