Photo: Matthew McConaughey Spoke To The Texas Football Team Today

Texas alum Matthew McConaughey, now an Academy Award winner, is certainly no fair-weather Longhorns fan. Despite the team's struggles this season, McConaughey made it clear today that he still supports his alma mater and new head coach Charlie Strong. The True Detective star stopped by Austin to talk to the squad Wednesday afternoon. Texas' equipment Twitter account sent out a photo of the players taking a knee to hear what he had to say.

McConaughey has been a fixture on Texas' sideline for years, so this comes as no surprise. He's one of the few celebrities who truly supports his team through thick and thin.
