Speaking of Longhorns and goring, several years ago some kids were running around on the Texas Tech campus in the middle of the night.  One kid ran smack straight into a Longhorn statue and was gored to death.

So even the statues are fearsome.
I was gonna laugh at this, and looked it up to see if it were true, but it wasn't even a student.  It was a 14 yr old playing hide-and-seek at 3 am, and I'm not gonna lie, that sounds like something I would have done.   I have def played "hide and seek" in the nighttime with other stoners, and I am sometimes accident prone.   Usually I enjoy seeing the bull win in a bullfight, but kind of a different story when the bull isn't real.   ~???
I'm shocked I had not heard this story before today, but Houston rarely covers West Texas news since we have our own daily death stories that never end in our little corner of the state.

Makes me wonder if our tigers are neutered or not.  As far as I know, LSU has been involved with the conservation and captive breeding efforts in order to help get the population of the world's tigers back up, so I'd think not.  But I have no clue.  

Maybe they only say they are helping the world's tigers, but really are just housing overgrown nutless wildcats so UGA fans can peddle BS stories about bulldogs scaring them.

When did Junior assume the cranky, get off my lawn, old man role?

Jeez.  Go drink your milk of magnesium, grandpa.

What more can you say about Texas at USC.   Texas went.  It looked like a pretty evening.  The defense stepped up so we're tempted to turn a blind eye to other, lingering problems.  It was an interesting game.  The Notre Dame game last year was interesting.  The OU game the year before was interesting.  The UCLA game the year before that was interesting.  The OU game the year before that was interesting.  Texas has interesting games from time to time.  

They have maddening games too.

Today it looks like our finger is in the dyke plugging up the defensive woes.

The special teams hole is still leaking.

The offensive hole is gushing.

There are players on the team who have played for Shawn Watson, Jay Norvelle, Sterlin Gilbert and now Tim Beck.  Heard to Burt used to be a great weapon.  Buechele to Duvernay used to be a great weapon.  Ehlinger to Johnson is a great weapon.  I'd try every one of those at least once per game.  I'd use the pass to set up the run.  I'd put Warren in the wildcat on short yardage.  I'd put Lil Jordan in the widcat too.  I'd throw everything at the wall.

But special teams are still atrocious.  And why is returning a freshman job?  Why can't anybody ever grow and learn?  Where's Boyd and Duvernay?

Bleh.  The glass is still half empty.

I posted my thoughts on the game and was reprimanded for my opinion on football teams.

I abandoned that in favor of following the thread where it had wandered--a trait I'm pretty sure I learned from the Big 12 crowd--yet this too seems to be incorrect.  

Tough room.  

By all means, get back to discussing the goring of teenagers, your favorite piss-tasting beers, and the debatable quality of Neil Young.  It's just riveting.

Don't be so sensative MDT.   You're liable to be accused of being a closet Texican.

Oh wait!

Reminds me of the nine circles of hell in Dante's Inferno.

At the core we have a football discussion, specific to a certain game.  Around that we have discussion about what the outcome of that game foretells about the future of one of the team's involved.  Ringing that we have an indictment of the word "hella," surrounded by an essay on the importance or unimportance of testicles on mascots and the possumeness of SEC fans.  Then come the outer circles of complaint.  Complaint about how the topic has evolved.  Complaint about general complaining.  Complaint about the last complainer.  Complaint about people who complain about complainers.

Like ripples in a pond.

Or a tub.  Filled with possums.

Longhorns are not be trifled with.  Bevo has to be snipped and drugged.  It's the only responsible thing to do.  Can you imagine the havoc a full-sized longhorn bull would wreak in a stadium of 100,000 people?
why is it I thought of "Any which way but loose" when I read this?  
"we'ze black widders... didju know black widders killed more people just last year than rattlers?"

Just as a point of order, the movies were "Every Which Way But Loose" and "Any Which Way You Can."

Well, hell yeah.  This post is perfect.
I sure wish my old friend JCG were around to see it.  Or my dear pal Hooky Hornstein.  I'm pretty sure both of those guys would appreciate the circular symmetry found here.
