In the winners' dressing room, the Longhorns listened to their customary postgame tape of Sister Sledge's We Are Family, an anthem borrowed from the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates. The gentle ballad failed to pacify the pumped-up Longhorns. Upon being informed that Houston tailback Chuck Weatherspoon, who had been averaging 107.25 yards a game rushing, had picked up just 50 yards against their defense, Longhorn linebacker Brian Jones shouted, "Chuck who? Weatherspoon? Try Teaspoon!"
Said cornerback Willie Mack Garza, "You hear it over and over again, how their offense is so unstoppable. Their coach, Jenkins, has been talking a lot of smack in the papers about what they did to us last year and two years ago. Well, this is 1990, and it feels good to make them shut their mouths."
Even in victory, these Longhorns remain angry young men.
