I am a Recruiting Contributor at Burnt Orange Nation.

Texas Ex, Class of 2009. College of Communications.

Texas season ticket holder since 2004.

Attended every OU - Texas game since 2002.

Attended the 2005 National Championship Game.

I've met Augie before, still seeking that elusive hand shake from Mack Brown.

Too many great DKR quotes to mention here, so I'll go with Dana X. Bible:

"Boys! The eyes of Texas are upon you. Texans are huddled around their radios from Brownsville to Wichita Falls, from El Paso to Texarkana, in every home, grocery store, drug store, barbershop and hardware store in the state of Texas all are eagerly waiting to find out how you do today. Today, you are not just representing the University of Texas, today, you're fighting and playing for the entire state of Texas! This is Texas against Wisconsin! Set your jaws! Make up your minds! Let's play a game that will live in the hearts and minds of the people of Texas FOREVER!"
-- Texas Coach D.X. Bible's pregame speech to the Longhorns prior to the 1939 contest with Wisconsin. Texas won 17-7 over the larger UW squad.

Sundays with Bill, Escape from Eskimo Joe's Edition A win is a win. Am I right? Very simply, Texas hasn't won these type of games in the past 2 years. I'll take a road win against a ranked conference opponent every day of the week. David Ash did his best Elway. D.J. Monroe continues to play like the hungriest senior in recent memory. Magic Mike bounced back. Jaxon Shipley showed up to catch 3 TDs. Johnathan Gray came of age. Bergeron closes in a clutch situation. Now there's the defense. I saw some flashes, but the defensive frustration continues. Texas should get Moore back for WVU. Fingers crossed on Hicks and Fera. It's put or shut up time for Manny Diaz. Adjustments and personnel changes must be made. The WVU game looms large. Texas will use the coming weekend as to showcase The University to uncommitted targets. Devon Allen is off the board. Things remain static with Treadwell. What is Texas' 2013 plan at WR? Billings moves closer to a decision. Benenoch schedules an official visit. "You've got to think lucky. If you fall into a mudhole, check your back pocket - you might have caught a fish." - DKR Fire away citizens.

Sundays with Bill, Oklahoma State Preview Edition

Texas was off this week for so much needed rest. Expect to see Bergeron and Fera against the Pokes. Not so sure about Jordan Hicks. Texas will have a real test on their hands in Stillwater....
