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.
