START THE COMEBACK WITHOUT ME
By Danny Reagan / Abilene, Texas
Here I am on gameday stuck in Midland. Don't believe this is burnt orange territory.
But at least my daughter won her first game of the soccer tournament. And at least the Hilton has an ethernet connection and TBS.
Speaking of Longhorn comebacks on television, they'll have to start his one without me. I probably won't get in front of a set until the second half ... when the good stuff usually starts to happen. Guess it's too much to ask for the 'Horns to lead the entire game.
So what if it takes them a half to get the adrenalin flowing. They'll wave bye to the deficit by the fourth quarter. No biggie.
Colt McCoy and comebacks are the topics of most news stories dealing with UT today. On this season already steeped in irony (see previous entries), here's another one. Colt didn't have much experience in leading comebacks when he was in high school. Those Jim Nedders usually built up a big lead by half and the other team was hoping there was a 45-point mercy rule.
Again, there's nothing wrong with comeback wins. As Mack Brown so dryly stated earlier this week, "it's better than losing."
Well, gotta run. Next tournament game is less than an hour away. See you after the game ... the one with the comeback win, that is.
