I've seen "chupita" invoked on these boards before and never got what folks were referring to.
Now I know.
I've looked into my crystal ball and here's what's going to happen. The Aggies are going to screw the golden goose. They're going to get caught cheating (because they suck at everything given enough time) and they will bring down the entire SEC.
However Ole Miss lured in those players, they could have done it from Conference USA. And they would have already been probed and busted.... which is why Conference USA teams don't dare.
So yeah, SEC has clout. The clout to make the NCAA think twice before they go snooping around in the biggest money-making conference in college football.
How do you figure? Do 5 stars routinely elect to play in C-USA.
You're resting this solely on illicit activity, so just say that. But stating again that cheating is at play doesn't refute the point made by your fellow horn.

A C-USA team knows they wouldn't last five minutes doing anything under the table. That's what the NCAA loves to do, make examples out of the irrelevant.
An SEC team believes that SEC > NCAA. And they may be right. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
It could be that Ole Miss knows a little about their conference mates so they decided to jump in and up the ante. Who's gonna tell on who? This could turn into a ruthless arms race if the NCAA lets it.

Right, ignore the fact that in the past few years
2 high level football staff members have trouble, keeping their members in their pants
Our main rival has embarrassed on national television to the tune of 146 to 58
We've lost out on top recruits to Baylor, TCU and multiple out of state schools
But yeah its the fans that suck
MD hit the nail on the head. Being in the SEC & (Johnny Football) will pose a large problem for UT dominating the best Texas players anymore. Their SEC presence/media exposure will also create more opportunities for Arkansas, Mississippi State and Ole Miss to recruit in TX.

Ironic coming from a guy that bought an OU shirt at halftime of one of the Mack-rapings at the RRS.
I've wondered if Chup could be nothing more than a gooner troll.
That would explain his love affair with Mack.
did not mean to +1 this line. Old miss getting 5 5 star player is suspect. They have hot girls and a good party in the grove but come on...oh and UT players playing in Norman? When is the last time that home and home went down? There is also the fact that UT players get to live in a city much cooler and just about anywhere in SEC land
I can easily understand a recruit deciding to go to Bama but have a really hard time understanding why a recruit would choose to go to aggy over UT even without the CS comparison to Austin.
aggy has what looks to be a knockout hire at HC who can develop his players into a cohesive unit and create a gameplan that beats Alabama at home in his first year and depantsed OU, and only lost to "better" teams in LSU and Florida. They have the most outstanding player in CFB who's got at least 2 more seasons in him. They are trending upward and now play in the "greatest conference EVAR".
Now juxtapose that with a program that's on year 3 of mediocrity, loses tremendously to OU and KSU, barely beats Kansas, loses to lesser teams like WVU and TCU, has the worst statistical defense in its history while bringing back the man who coordinated it to that level and finally limps their way to a victory over a middle of the road Pac 12 team. Location location location isn't the end all be all anymore. At some point talent development needs to occur. Recruits have taken notice of that.
