"Even if he doesn't achieve exactly what Young did as a Longhorn, Swoopes said he would like to have one thing in common with Young when he's finished — winning a national title at Texas. Even though he was asleep when Young was rallying Texas past USC more than six years ago, Swoopes indeed got the gist of what that night was all about.
"I think about that moment all the time," he said. "When the game is in the fourth quarter and everyone is tired, I want to be the guy who makes a play to lift my teammates and help carry us to a win.""
Exactly what you want to hear from your quarterback.
Where are all those folks who had a bee in their bonnet over UT offering Swoopes?
