Okay, you want me to comment....
A long, long time ago when the whole city of Arlington was fired up for the UTA Rebels - then was a chance for the Football program - then, when the Rebels roared across the field, and the Arkansas State Rebels fought back.
Then, at half time, I was there. as the young lady from Mansfield. Texas, rode her steed across the football field at halftime, the Last Rebel Flag falling, and being rescued - at the last moment - as she caught it before it touched the ground, and the UTA Rebel Band roared "Dixie" as both sides of the field stood as one.
Then, was the time, when you had a football team, and a public behind it.
But you lost it.
I was there. and I saw you lose it.
Shame on you, and what you did to this spirit - shame on you,
Later to become Pro Football player, Jimmy Thomas. UTA proud Black Rebel, had a single word for you then - when the Rebels won the ballots that final day - "GOOD!" - when he asked me the outcome.
I was there that day, and the four years before, and I saw all of this. and I know what you did was wrong, and I will never forgive you - UTA Rebel .
