  1. Texas A&M vs NC State- Gator Bowl

    All these SEC conspiracy theories you have. You are always very quick to judge, but never one to "understand" why this is. So lets read "between the lines" as you so eloquently stated.. because sometimes, you just need to look into the mirror to find the answers...... Perhaps some lessons to be learned here in loyalty. Something tu knows little about, hence the flight of schools and reluctance of others to join big 12-2-2+1+1 or whatever it is this week and the reluctance of the PAC 12 or any other major conference to ever send an official invite to tu when all the shuffling was happening 4-5 years ago and the conference looked to be imploding. tu is in it for tu and that is all fine and dandy because they are only 1 of about 5 or 6 schools in this country who can do what they have done and basically get what they want all the time. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, get what you can get (ie, their own network) , just don't expect others around you to like it, that is just human nature. The Texas Tech's and Baylor's of the world had no choice but to ride the coat tails of tu and hope for the best. In the end, you have a conference, but one of inequality and unfairness when it comes to $$$$ and tv contracts, thus resulting in petty jealousy throughout.  On the other hand, everything's equal in the SEC when it comes to $$ and TV deals. No one is being treated differently than the other. That same model is used by the Big 10 and Pac 12 as well (Not sure about the ACC) Decisions are made in the best interest of the entire conference, not one "mother ship" institution. Loyalty to a conference is not something that just happens. It happens when there is a level playing field and just like everything, that starts with MONEY!!  In closing, perhaps it is not the abundance of loyalty in the SEC that ruffles your feathers as much as it is the lack of loyalty inside your own conference that moves you to poke and jest at the superior model set forth by the SEC and other conferences. Or is it superior? For tu, maybe not, but for others in the Big 12, I cant help but think that they would love to bite off some of that tu pie and we all know that is not happening in Austin as long as tu is calling the shots for the conference and honestly, as an Aggie fan, I cant say as I blame them because tu has the ultimate trump card in that they DO NOT need a conference. So to all tu fans, don't hate on conference loyalties, because loyalty is a bi-product of equality throughout, not a King and peasantry hierarchy. Sometimes you not not look any further than a mirror to find your answer........   Luke has Spoken    
  2. Texas at Georgia- Sugar Bowl

    Sorry to pee in your pinot buddy, but NOTHING in Austin Texas makes me jealous, NOTHING. 
  3. Texas at Georgia- Sugar Bowl

    as so does teasip ignorance
  4. College Football Playoff

    There is nothing wrong with the way it is now, bottom line. No matter the #, you will ALWAYS have #5 or #9 or #17 griping that they were left's who we are as sports fans. The way I look at it, the playoff actually begins in early November. The only 3 teams in question this year were Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Georgia. Georgia and Ohio State had "ugly" losses. OU had no ugly loss, won their conf. champ. game and ended the season with 1 loss. As for UCF, they have now earned my respect after 2 undefeated seasons, power 5 or not. If memory serves me right, it took Boise State a couple of years to gain the pollsters respect before they broke through and proved they belonged by beating OU in the Fiesta Bowl. UCF did beat an "unmotivated" Auburn team last season, so I will give them that. If they beat LSU to end this season, I gotta have them in the top 8 or so to begin next year so they have a LEGIT shot at the top 4 next year. 
  5. Championship Week

    Yeah, quite similar to a certain central Texas city, hence the comfort level. 
  6. Strength of Schedule for Texas Teams

    Not exactly an everyday word so I may or may not have checked SP on that one. 
  7. Mark Richt is a loser

    I beg to differ partner.......not a loser. Bad recruiter? Maybe, but not a loser by definition.  171-63 record 11-6 in bowls
  8. Strength of Schedule for Texas Teams

    Irony is doubt my intelligence and type "Koolade" in the same sentence, but you do jog some memories of my youth and Kool Aid, so I will share. I have opened enough of those baseball card sized packets of Kool Aid and dumped enough Imperial Pure Cane Sugar to serve every liberal teasip in Travis County...................well, maybe not. I even took it a step further with my "Aggie engineering" and poured it into "ice trays" (yeah, there is such a thing to you young bucks out there) and covered with cellophane and placed a toothpick through, place in freezer........Instant poor folk popsicle!!  No doubt, the teasips would get the green variety though. That was the nastiest.  PS- I do like tu's chances against OU this weekend. Whatever the point total is, take the under!! Look for Tommy boy and his kissing crew to really try and slow the game down. If they cannot, it may be a long day. If they do, look for PEE WEE to go full tonsil hockey on at least 10 of his players after the game.

    Who said anything about A&M and SEC? Lets count, shall we? There are 11 other schools up there. Go back to your Ag bashing page and take your orange kool aid with ya brother. If I wanted to stir the pot I would have pasted this into one of your hate filled Ag bashing threads. I ran across this on a Texas Tech page when reading about Kingsbury getting fired and just thought I would share because its simple, straightforward, and to the point.  Obsession noted AGAIN dude. Wow
