The LHN has an original programming documentary on the 2008 Longhorn season that debuted last night and will be rebroadcast...every few hours for the next year. Hey, it's the LHN. It's either run it on a loop, watch Kasey Studdard catch perch, or listen to another speech from a Washington bureaucrat at the LBJ school.
The 2008 Red River Shootout was the second of three consecutive I attended. It was easily the most exciting and rewarding live game I’ve attended in any sport. Because of the scarring that had resulted from five consecutive defeats to Bob Stoops’ Sooners, there wasn’t a ton of confidence going into any of these games even though Texas ended up finishing 3-1 against OU during the Colt McCoy era.
