With Texas set to join the SEC within the next few years, one UT history professor vouched for the Longhorns and their following as being worthy of the conference.

Sharing a student's email to his Twitter account on Tuesday who admitted that he won't be coming to class on Tuesday or Thursday because of Texas' road game vs. the Red Raiders this weekend.

“Don’t tell me Texas is a bad fit for the SEC,” Leonard N. Moore laughed. “I appreciate this honesty.”

Moore's post started to go viral among college football fans on social media.

"'Can’t knock the hustle.' - Sean Carter."

"Excuse me lmao?" a Dallas native asked.

"Give him an F," replied Clarence Hill Jr. "No reason to got to Lubbock that early. He certainly won't be sober at game time."

"Don't hesitate."

That's dedication.
