Emmanuel Acho Says Texas Players Got Money For INTs Vs. Alabama In 2010 BCS Title Game
© Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports
On ESPN’s Get Up! Thursday, former Texas star Emmanuel Acho told a crazy story about players getting told well before the 2010 BCS National Championship Game against Alabama that defensive backs would receive $1,000 for each interception they recorded. Per Horns247...
quote:

“We went to the national championship game in 2009 and … it was public to the team, for every interception the defensive back got, they were going to get $1,000,” Acho said of Texas’ 37-21 loss to the Crimson Tide on Jan. 7, 2010. “For every pick y’all got against Alabama in the national championship game, you’re going to get $1,000. Now, the difference is we just didn’t do it publicly on the field.

“What my problem is, though, everybody masquerades Odell Beckham as a guy who thinks, ‘Oh, I plotted this out. I’m going to go out, hand this money and they’re going to talk about me on Get Up. That’s not what he’s thinking. That’s not what he’s thinking.”
UPDATE...

Emmanuel Acho is definitely that guy who cannot ever keep a secret, and must broadcast it to every person who will hear him.
