Nebraska Red Out Shirt Angered Texas
Take a good look at that shirt now because you probably won’t see it again. The Web site www.redoutshirt.com came up with that shirt to sell to Nebraska fans ahead of the big game with Texas this weekend. Nebraska is going with a Red Out in Lincoln to get their fans together to support the team.
The fans have been looking for revenge ever since last year’s Big 12 title game which Texas won on a last-second field goal. The :01 on the shirt refers to the play before the kick where Colt McCoy scrambled and threw an incompletion. Time appeared to have expired, but an extra second was added to the clock and Texas won the game.
As the Austin American-Statesman points out via College Football Talk, the Texas Longhorns trademark department got after the site for using the Longhorns logo on the shirt. The Horns logo is obviously a huge seller for the university, but my guess is the upside down logo is what really pissed them off. If you don’t believe me, just ask Vince Young what an upside down horns can do to a man.
