07:20 AM ET 06.03 | Forgive Longhorns fans for remembering the name -- Alabama fans, too. The man who killed Texas football still proclaims his innocence. Eryk Anders mostly stays away from Longhorns these days. ... Yes, he was the Alabama linebacker who at the Rose Bowl 3 1/2 years ago slammed into Garrett Gilbert from behind, sacking the UT quarterback and forcing the fumble that ended the Longhorns' hopes of winning the national title game. And yes, that play marked the precise moment when UT transformed from a college football superpower into a bumbling, inept program that could do nothing right. But Anders insists there's no blood on his hands. "Texas didn't go down because of me," said Anders. ... "I seriously doubt that play put a curse on them or anything."

Yeah... and treats Garrett Gilbert like he was the next Andrew Luck.




He wasn't.

This is what is called "filler". It's not newswothy, not timely, and of no interest.

I have his picture up in a small shrine in my garage.

Nothing wrong with that, is there?

And not even the play that really did it. Most at that game would single out the freak hit on Colt or the shuttle pass/pick6 at half.

John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart could make this thread work.

STUPID!


If I were a TX fan I would also be insulted that they are saying TX is a bumbling & stumbling program. They have a couple of bad years and are considered this?
