AUSTIN — Way back in 2015, Texas defensive end Breckyn Hager made a bold vow to not cut his hair until the Longhorns won the Big 12 Championship.

The former Westlake Chaparral stayed true to his promise for four years, and his blonde mane currently flows past his shoulders.

Back in December, Hager had an opportunity to bring out the scissors and had a plan to do so at the Big 12 Championship game in Arlington, Texas. But, Oklahoma altered that plan. The Sooners defeated the Longhorns, 39-27.

It was the Longhorns' only opportunity to play for a Big 12 title during Hager's era at Texas.

But now. the Longhorn legacy has a plan.

"This is all practice for the future," Hager said. "I've got a plan, don't worry."

That's what Hager said while walking off the field after UT's 28-21 Sugar Bowl win over Georgia in New Orleans.

A Plan B for cutting his blonde locks is what it sounds like to me. It's another humorous, cryptic Hager message, but he made it clear -- or not so clear -- that the man who coined the popular phrase, "Alright, alright, alright" from Dazed and Confused may be piece of that plan.

"Matthew's cutting my hair," Hager said.

You know, Matthew McConaughey, who was recently named the "Minister of Culture" for the new basketball arena, which is expected to be constructed in 2021.

The question now is when McConaughey will assist Hager with the haircut.
