University of Texas sophomore journalism student Austin Talbert was stewing over the recently released BCS college football standings that had Texas slightly ahead of Oklahoma, even though Texas soundly defeated the Sooners in October, when the idea struck him to start a Facebook page promoting his Longhorns. As of Wednesday afternoon he had 15,000 members in support. Talbert holds a Daily Texan newspaper insert, published today, promoting the final score of the Red River Rivalry game and urges fellow students to hold the insert at the game.
