When you are 11 years old, you need a hero. Number 23 was mine...Seven yard career rush average and the Bronze Star for valor as a MASH surgeon in 'Nam.
First college game I saw , Dad put me in the (now departed) upper deck of AGCS to see my hero live.
The hook-em hand sign was a vain invention to help UT "hex" TCU, and espescially, Jim Swink. It worked so well TCU scored over 40 points on'em, Jim had over 200 yards rushing, and only needed 9-10 carries to do it. Today you'd call it a "Collosal Fail!
So Young Frog Fan, every time they flash that at you, remember the unintended honor they do to one of our very own all-time legends of the game.
Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce (1906)
[Resemblances to this distinguished modern medium are eerily familiar]
Ink, n. A villainous compound of tanno-gallate of iron, gum-arabic, and water, chiefly used to facilitate the infection of idiocy and promote intellectual crime.
Logic, n. The art of thinking and reasoning in strict accordance with the limitations and incapacities of the human misunderstanding.
Repartee, n. Prudent insult in retort. Practiced by gentlemen with a constitutional aversion to violence, but a strong disposition to offend.

Old #87 could not take it anymore in 4th quarter and ripped his LSU jacket off to reveal his proudly worn TCU Rose Bowl shirt. LSU fans loved it!
haha .. way to go "old" No. 87.
Hey, Dutch! I brought my skates!
