Longhorn Road Trip began as a simple blog chronicling the journey of one University of Texas senior in his attempt to attend every single Longhorn basketball game, home and away, in the 2006-07 season. (For more on the origin of this idea, feel free to read a post detailing the original moments of insanity.)
But much like Doublemint Gum, Pringles, and Jaegerbombs, it was soon discovered that you can’t stop with just one. Ryan, site editor of LRT, is currently attempting to pull off the feat for a fifth-straight year. His streak of consecutive Longhorn games began at the Big 12 Tournament championship against Kansas in 2006 and is currently at 164 games as the team enters Big 12 play in 2011. It includes nine NCAA tournament games, eleven more at Big 12 tournaments, and three exhibitions.
The site also includes commentary on the world of college basketball and provides links to useful articles, websites, and blogs covering NCAA hoops.
