Cartoon #237: “National Champion”

Title: National Champion; Text: (Longhorn steer labeled #1, with elongated, ornamental horns, and holding a long-stemmed rose in its mouth.)

In a 41 to 38 victory at the 2006 Rose Bowl, The number two ranked University of Texas Longhorns defeated the number one ranked University of Southern California Trojans and won the national championship of college football.

In doing so, Texas prevented USC from winning an unprecedented third straight national championship, ended the Trojan’s 34-game winning streak, and achieved vengence for UT quarterback Vince Young, the game’s MVP, who was recently beat out for the Heisman Trophy by USC running back Reggie Bush.

As an alumnus of the University of Texas, and the Longhorn Marching Band — The Showband of the Southwest — I say, Hook ’em Horns!
