In some of the most dramatic days since UT's loss to Kansas in Lawrence, Justin Wells and Ian Boyd deliver the IT Podcast with theme - Crazy, by Seal.

It's bowl eligibility and finishing Strong in this edition of the Inside Texas Podcast.
Let me prematurely say Happy Thanksgiving. You're dead for a long time so don't spend the day in petty familial arguments.

That last bit is a tall order for some of you :) but do your best. More Strong, Herman, McFaven, LSU and Oregon jobs.
