When Buzz writer Andria Frankfort told the story of a group of UT guys’ long-lasting friendship for her October 2020 story, “It Started at Texas-OU: Still friends after 40 years," it wasn't clear if the friends' Texas-OU tradition would happen this fall. Every year since college, they’ve gathered at Doris and Sol Freed’s home for dinner. The original group included Stephen Berkman, Alfie Meyerson, Eric Blumrosen, Barry Zietz, Ralph Robinson, Michael Rubenstein, Richard Seline, Billy Freed, Jeff Genecov, Alan Luskey, Robert Glass, Brad Hacker and Lenny Davis, all in the same ZBT pledge class in 1976. This year, Russell Freed held a Zoom call with the friends and their families the Friday evening of the weekend. Doris and Sol had been invited to a Zoom call but thought it was just their immediate family members and were thrilled to see more than 40 familiar faces. They were also surprised when the group sent them the same catered meal that the Freeds usually serve for the party each year. Despite the tough Longhorn loss, these friends were glad they could see each other. Click here to read more about the buddies.
