Earl Thomas calls Texas ‘DBU’ (Video)

Earl ThomasEarl Thomas gave a special shoutout to his alma mater during introductions for “Sunday Night Football” on NBC.

Thomas, who is obviously proud of his roots, said he went to “Texas” and called his school, “DBU,” which is a reference to Texas’ history of producing good defensive backs.

This isn’t the first time someone from Texas referred to the school as “DBU” — Tarrell Brown did it, too.

Though this debate has been going on for years, it looks like Texas’ claim as “DBU” may not be accurate at the moment, if you’re talking current numbers. According to my check, LSU has 10 defensive backs in the NFL, while Texas has eight. Wouldn’t that make LSU “DBU”?
