Throughout the course of the last 24 hours there has no doubt been tons of memories and flashbacks of great moments in Texas sports. For me, these are my top 3 Mack Brown moments. I could go on about his character, integrity and what he brought to the game, University and fans for hours but I digress. Texas Forever.
The 2011 Texas A&M Game. 25-27 win. Texas scored a field goal at the end of the 4th quarter to seal the win in the last match up in the Texas/Texas A&M rivalry.

LASTY, this speech after they won the 2006 National Champion. The last minute is the best part and true testament to his character. “I don’t want this to be the best thing to ever happen in your life. When you’re 54 I don’t want you to say winning a football game is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. You’ll have it and you’ll be a champion the rest of your life, you make sure that’s one of the best sports things in your life but you promise me if you have enough about you to win a National Championship, you got enough about you to be a great citizen, a great role model, a great father and a great leader in your community. That’s what we’re looking for when you get out of here, that’s what we want.”
For a great list, check out what ESPN put together.
