"IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL. DON'T Y'ALL THINK IT'S BEAUTIFUL? And it's coming home to Texas--all the way to Austin, Texas, baby.... We didn't get no respect. It was like someone went out and gave us 12-and-0. We wanted to show the world we deserved to play in this and get the win.... That's what we did. I kept thinking, 'Do whatever it takes.' It's all about heart, focus and poise."
