Shane Buechele has great quote about his improbable birth
If his parents had their way, Shane Buechele would not be the starting quarterback for the Texas Longhorns. In fact, Buechele wouldn’t be here, period.
As harsh as it may sound, Buechele was a mistake. His father, Steve, had a vasectomy — one that obviously did not work — before Shane was conceived. But here we are, and the true freshman had a hilarious remark about his unique family situation in the wake of Texas’s upset win over No. 10 Notre Dame on Sunday.
Shane Buechele, on being born after his dad's vasectomy: "I don't know if it's an accomplishment, but I'm glad to be here."

Of course, Buechele’s parents have no regrets. Steve Buechele, a former MLB player who is currently on the Texas Rangers’ staff, and his wife Nancy told Shane about the failed vasectomy two years ago. They even introduced Shane to the doctor who performed the procedure. What did the Longhorns quarterback say to the man?
“Thank you very much,” Buechele recently joked to Brad Townsend of SportsDay.
The Buecheles have a great sense of humor about Shane being an “oops baby.” When you see some of the incredible feats the youngster is capable of (such as this), you can understand why.
