Texas made a run at one of the biggest comebacks we’ve seen in college basketball this year, rallying from 21 points down against Iowa State only to fall by three in the 89-86 loss. As the comeback reached it’s tipping point with less than a minute left, though, announcer Brent Musberger awoke from his courtside slumber, leading to our Fan Tweet of the Night from Ryne Patrick:
Brent Musburger just starting making up his own stats #TEXvsISU

Musberger’s stats included in-conference 2nd half free-throw percentage, the velocity of a three point jump shot, and the odds of scoring five points in 0.6 seconds. Brent will always be one of the great voices of college sports, but sometimes he simply loses his game notes and makes the game that much more entertaining to watch.
Thank you Brent for playing by your own rules, but, more importantly, thank you Ryne for calling out the man who just woke up from his this-is-a-blowout nap and began spouting fantastical stats once being startled awake.
