Matthew McConaughey may be an Academy Award winner now, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten his roots. Or at least that’s what I think we learned from his Lincoln commercial. Regardless, the Texas alum returned to his alma mater last week and gave a remarkably inspiring speech to the football team ahead of its game against Kansas.
Warning: Even if you don’t play football, there is zero chance you won’t look in the mirror tonight and ask yourself why you play the game after watching this clip.
For the record, the Longhorns routed the Jayhawks, 23-0, on Saturday. Guess McConaughey did all right, all right, all right with his pep talk. You knew that line had to happen.
