As I prepare to head home from SoCal after attending the 2010 BCS National Championship game at the Rose Bowl, it reminds me of the “Trail of Tears” (high school history, anyone)? For several reasons. While saddened by the outcome of the game between Texas and Alabama, hold out hope that all Longhorn fans saw the future of Texas football on Thursday night – at least, “the future” that showed up in the second half – true freshman quarterback Garrett Gilbert.
Before an in-depth analysis of the game graces your computer screens, it was about time to share some video from the pre-game festivities and game itself. Heck, if you couldn’t spend $2k+ to be in sunny Pasadena, feel free to live vicariously through Eyes Of TX here.

Until the full 2010 BCS National Championship break-down post, and more pictures from the game, keep your Horns up! At the end of the day, at least Rick Barnes’ men’s basketball squad remains undefeated (15-0 after their opening Big 12 match-up).
