Mason's coach talked about that on our sports talk radio show The Zone this Wednesday night. I enjoyed the breakfast and flip and film trade, but, hey, I enjoyed driving in and waiting all night in Austin to pick up the game film, driving back to the field house, and watching it on 16mm film. :roll:
