My grandson (just turned 10) & I arrived early so he could destroy one or more credit cards in the gift shop. I chose to park on a surface lot rather than in the garage. Walking to the field we walked by the Tenn Tech tailgate, and encountered a number of their fans to whom I said, "Welcome to Austin, hope you've had a good time". (This is something I always do to visiting football fans - even Ohio State) Everyone of the 50+ we came in contact with had the same thing to say - "We've never been treated so well anywhere we've been." Congratulations to our fan base and the citizens of Austin for displaying such class and being great hosts. I have to add, that each also said how badly they were treated in Oxford. I have always thought our fanbase has a tendency to get a little complacent and "go to sleep". Yesterday and today, they were more like the football game against OU. It was really electric. My interactions with CDC has been limited thus far, but I ran into him on the way down to the field to get autographs after the game. He was like a kid on Christmas morning, almost dancing as he enlightened me with the announcement "We're going to Omaha". Not what I expected, but a really nice change. To those that couldn't make it, I'm sorry you missed the intensity of the team and the crowd. For those that were there, thank you for making an incredible memory for my grandson and me; something I know he will tell his grandkids about. HOOK EM HORNS! SEE YOU IN OMAHORN!
