So The Texas Longhorns Coach's Stepson Has a MySpace Page

Athens, GA (Jan 1, 2008) - For those of you who did not see it on the Holiday Bowl broadcast the other day, the University of Texas got assessed a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Why? because Chris Jessee, the stepson of Texas Coach Mack Brown stepped onto the field and touched the ball while it was still a live ball. Live or dead, he had no reason to cross over the sideline onto the field of play. As such, he was mocked and laughed at for stupidity, but he also got himself interviewed on TV multiple times, giving him his 15 minutes of fame.

Alas, he is still getting hounded as his MySpace page was found by the owners of "The Sporting Orange" blog. The quote on his page reads:

"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another. - Hemingway"

Apparently, that was not the only quote on the site. The following picture was found on his photo album, accompanied by the quote, "Who else wanna f&#* with 'Hollywood Cole'."

Jessee is employed on the team's football operations staff. There is no clear reason why he was even on the sidelines to begin with as he is not on the coaching staff or a trainer. In fact, according to the Houston Chronicle, Jessee has the "title of senior office assistant in the department of intercollegiate athletics, according to the university's staff directory. Jessee primarily handles the coordinating of team travel and other administrative duties, and he reports to Cleve Bryant, the director of football operations."

The lack of control by his step-father led to an Arizona State touchdown, And then to top things off, he has a MySpace profile with a picture obviously taken at work posted. This is the type thing that can lead to bad public relations for the University of Texas, especially if he had other content on there that might be embarrassing to him, his step-father, the team, and/or the university.

For now, we may not know as he has taken his MySpace profile private. We do not know if he did this because we was getting harassed or he was told to by his step-father. We do know that he is defending himself by saying he never touched the ball. Clearly, the video evidence supports this. In the end, it does not matter that he said this since he did not belong on the field of play in any situation.
