Even as we look back upon a miserable Longhorn football season, there is a new light dawning at DKR. Coach Mack Brown has assembled an impressive and exciting new group of coaches and we at 4 Dudes Gameday are excited about Longhorn football prospects in 2011. Let this be the last time we revisit the disappointment of 2010, reflected in our mid-season episode of 4 Dudes Gameday, the only one we had the stomach to produce.
We have been quiet for a while on this blog. And I have not heard a thunderous complaint, so I’ve assumed it is fine with everyone who already has way too much to read. But make space in your web site consumption schedule because we are about to ramp up the 4 Dudes Gameday series again. And this year we will go beyond Longhorn football while, of course, remaining true to our core focus. Talk to you soon!
Life in sports talk can be grueling. After an extended period of mourning following the BCS Title disappointment, we bring you our Superbowl preview show.
The Dudes talk about the game, then we go in the yard to illustrate how the Texas O line broke down against Nebraska, and finish with an illustration of how we think they’ll do against Alabama. The action is ferocious, so please use discretion with your younger viewers or anyone on life support.
The 4 Dudes recap Longhorns vs Aggies, do a roadtrip to DKR Texas Memorial Stadium and the trophy room with a stop a Freddy’s Steakburgers, and preview Longhorns vs Cornhuskers. This one is close to 10 minutes, but there was so much to see and talk about.

Later today I’ll post the 4 Dudes Gameday Big 12 Championship preview on YouTube and in this blog. It is rendering as I type. We had a road trip to DKR Texas Memorial Stadium on the U.T. campus and had a blast. We peeked into that massive stadium, so much bigger than the already large one I remember playing touch football in back in the 80s when they would let you do that. The boys were blown away. Then we went into the offices at the south end zone and saw the trophy area — national championship crystal, Heismans, Big 12 and Southwest Conference titles, Thorpe and Davey O’brien and Lombardi awards. And Major Applewhite walked through the room while we were gazing at all of that history, just to bring it all into the present. It was a great day, punctuated with typically unique commentary from the Dudes, which you’ll experience in the video. My favorite line is probably Luke’s answer to what he thought of being there, looking into that awesome stadium. “In my whole life I’ve never layed foot on a stadium like this,” he said. “I’m gonna lay foot!”
Indeed. At some point, 4 Dudes Gameday and DKR are destined to meet on closer terms.
Hook ‘em Horns!
Paul, Luke, Evan and yours truly talk Longhorns and Aggie football.
