    Great return yesterday for Vasher. 108 yds of course is record setting. My question, did Vasher do any kick or punt returning at Texas?

    Yes. He was a punt returner. I think he has some UT records for punt returns.

    Great return, great play, but I think because of the officials' positioning for the field goal attempt they weren't in position to see some fairly obvious blocks in the back that aided his run.

    I recall one fantastic punt return he had in particular... it set up one of my all-time favorite plays:

    ^^^ Is that when Vasher caught the punt at the 2 yrd line and fell down?

    He lost focus on what the situation. OU lined up to attempt a FG and instead quick kicked it. Vasher thought it was a pass and went up to intercept it. He caught it and slipped down. All he had to do was let it bounce into the end zone for a touch back. That would have guaranteed that Texas would have just lost 7-3 instead of 14-3.
