Fumble! Everybody On It, Including Stepsons

By now, you've probably heard about Chris Jessie, Mack Brown's stepson who stupidly grabbed a loose fumble last night during Texas' thumping of Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl. It's pretty entertaining.

Our favorite part of the incident is that Jessie, with a straight face, seemed to think that reporters should be talking more about the otherwise dull bowl game than his ridiculous play. Not likely.

"It was definitely not real comfortable at the time,' " Jessie acknowledged after the game. "But the guys came out and played a great game. That's all that matters. It (attention) shouldn't be focused on this."


We also enjoy that he, in fact, didn't touch the ball. It's one thing to instinctively reach for a live fumble. It's another thing to try, and miss. Video of the "play" can be found here.

Yes, we do like us some Chris Jessie.
