At this point, I’m pretty sure Matthew McConaughey could talk water into flowing uphill.

The Oscar-winner dropped by his alma mater to have a little conversation with the University of Texas Longhorns. It wasn’t meant to be a speech. He wasn’t out to preach. He just wanted to “look into their eyes,” like the Lone Star shaman he is, and pull the secret to excellence out of the ether and drop it in their cerebral cortexes.

And, of course, the Longhorns won their next game.
