They play in a confereence with Texas and OU. Briles is a hell of a coach. He may stay at BU once RG3 leaves. But if a traditional power is interested, I think he takes it.
Well Spade no team is a perennial top 10 program every year. Every school has to have a rebuilding year. There are only two schools in the state last decade that had national title competitive teams Texas and TCU. Its pretty much them and than everybody else IMO. TCU and Oklahoma more than likely will be the favorites to win the big 12 next year. TCU has a solid quarterback and the young defense is starting mirror Gary Patterson great defensive teams from the past. Baylor and OKST quarterbacks will graduate after this year. Texas as you stated needs a quarterback. OU will have a veteran squad next year.

Texas and TCU only in the last decade? LOL. How about Texas, TCU, A&M, Houston, and Tech.

This isn't a Houston vs Dallas anything. It's two colleges playing each other and the cities don't own them.

The Cowboys & Texans are two pro teams whom play each other & the cities don't own them either, but we still say Dallas is playing Houston even if the Cowboys don't play in Dallas City or County.

I was watching their last game & could literally count on my 10 fingers the number of times the announcers said "we're live in Dallas, Texas" at Cowboys Stadium. I'm sure that makes Arlington residents happy knowing their tax dollars are giving Dallas all of the attention even if their team plays in Tarrant County.

BTW if you watched the game today, SMU barely even beat Rice by 3 points.

Honestly, its only been Texas that has been a perennial top 10 team year inland year out the last 10 years. TCU had a great 2010. A&M didn't finish in the top 10 once. Nor did Texas Tech, or Houston. Texas 2001, 2004, 2005, 2008, and 2009 were national title contending teams and stayed in the rankings the entire decade. No other Texas program came close.

Very True...A very impressive resume by Texas... TCU finished 2005, 2008, 2009, & 2010 in the top 10. Not exactly a runaway by the Horns.

I would say it is because Texas was in contention of a national title for those years. Only 2009 TCU was in contention for a title. Possibly 2009 as well.

I agree...I was just speaking as far as perennial top 10 programs. Only the TCU 2009 and 2010 team really had national title calibar teams.

I had meant to post this earlier but TRAE713 has just been offically owned by SPADE.
