Rob Ford sports Texas Longhorns jacket in rehab (Photo)

Disgraced crack-smoking mayor of Toronto and current rehab patient, Rob Ford, was seen sporting a Texas Longhorns jacket at his rehab facility along with a pair of crocs.

It’s been a tough couple of years for the fans in Austin as they have seen the likes of Texas Tech and Baylor get on their level and in the case of the Bears, surpass the powerhouse that is the Longhorns on the field and in terms of producing NFL talent.

And now the Longhorn faithful have to be shaking their head at seeing this buffoon wearing their burnt orange in rehab.

For the first time since the late 1930s Texas failed to have a single player taken in the seven rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft. Mack Brown and the university parted ways and after trying to bring Nick Saban to the 40 Acres had to settle for one of their backup plans in former Louisville Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong.

Strong produced three first rounders in this year’s draft, so there is hope that Texas will get back to the top of the Big 12 standings and once again compete for national titles as is their birthright, but could this sighting of Ford in Texas gear be a giant colossal jinx for the Longhorns?

Of course that may sound silly, but in the world of college football and the rabid fanbases that come with that, could you imagine the noise coming out of Austin had Ford been wearing Oklahoma Sooners gear?
