  1. When I read the title, I thought it was going to be about the BYU game.

  2. I’m elated, and I’m trying to clear my Friday to make it down to Austin. (Note to anyone planning to stay in Austin on Friday night — UT plays at home on Saturday so hotels will be moving quick…)

  3. I’m glad you announced this. I live in Houston, and as a result I never get to participate in conferences of this nature which are always up in Utah. Hopefully I can make this, but, I wish it were on a Saturday!
