The University of Texas is giving Longhorn fans the chance the submit a video of your pre-game speech to the team through TexasLonghornsEnergyZone.com
Posted on the website is the following: “If you knew your words would be some of the very last ones that the Longhorns football team heard right before stepping on to the field, what would you say to them?”
“Each week, fans will be able to vote on different video submissions to decide which pep talk should be made available to the team. Plus, the person delivering the week's best speech during football season will receive a game ball signed by Mack Brown.”
At Texas, they start trends. We’re guessing this one will excite the fans and go over pretty well. This marketing idea should draw a lot of regional, if not national attention.
The Longhorns open the season against Rice in Reliant Stadium. A week later, Texas will host Wyoming before opening up conference play on September 18th against Tommy Tuberville's Texas Tech Red Raiders.
