I have traveled across this country nearly everyday for close to 12 years now and my experience has taught me differently sir. Texas has most of the same stereotypes as Bama,GA,TN,etc.
I dont know if you are a truck driver as well, but you are spot on. Not one single day passes that I dont see Longhorn decals on a few cars or license plates, I dont care what part of the country Im in. I also see Longhorn gear sold in at least 75% of the truck stops Im in and again, dosent matter where Im at, and Im out closer to and maybe a touch more than 300 days a year. A&M will never grasp how inferior to Texas they are on a national scale.
The B12 better get aggressive in a hurry or there wont be a B12 in a few years. All this "we are fine with 10" crap is just bullcrap. IF the conference wants to stay visible and relevant, it better put some offers out before there are no more teams to offer.
Dodds needs to shut up and let this thing grow back to at least 12. Make VT, CLEM, FSU, UM, BYU, PITT, GT and whoever else tell us no instead of waiting around to get the scraps.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Big 12s biggest problem right now is not 10 team or 12 teams, it is OU and Texas. When the 2 flagship programs are not perennial top 10 teams the league looks down. Big 10 has been facing that with Michigan and Ohio State. I think there are many long term issues the Big 12 faces, but the biggest short term hurdle to perception is Texas and OU not performing to historical expectations.
Bingo. In 2008-09 everyone was watching the b12. unfortunately, that was 3 years ago. guess who fell off during that time period.
Agree with Bruthaman here. Dodds has not only created a losing situation within his own athletic department but seems to be contributing to dumb decisions that could ultimately bring down the Conference.
I am dumbfounded how inept Deloss is. But, the powerful are not always credible and effective.

Every time I walked by that Occupy Wall Street tent city, I gave you a silent nod of support.
Also, Deloss is from K St, he will not leave the Kansas's, Iowa St's, etc in the learch. Another reason we have not left for another conference IMO.
