Give 'em credit. They're not as hopeless as Baylor.

Then again, it might be a tie. They both think Kevin Sumlin would take a demotion from UH to coach either school!

Ah, yes...that small town life that Sumlin's always been craving.

Oh, wait...no, he hasn't.

Our bad.

Not once you realize it's the same show over and over and over and over, year after year. And they still need whistles to tell them when to turn.

The show is pretty cool, but it does get old if you go to a lot of the games. I still like the Rice band better than any other .

LOL Now THAT's an interesting take on it, TW. I don't much disagree. I'd only slightly change it like this:

1. Longhorns
2. Texas teams
3. Big 12 SOUTH teams
4. SEC teams
5. Whoever is playing USC and/or Notre Dame! LOL

What about the rest of y'all?

The Aggies run an honest program even though they aren't good. UT has pretty much set a record for players arrested over the past 5 years and they breed trash Ricky Williams Vince Young, add that to Mack Brown's lobbying of sportswriters - and YUCK!

Aggies will always be aggies though (dumb!) I remember a few years back when they played Cal in a bowl - the dumb aggie paper (Battalion) said "this was a fight between conservatives and radicals and A&M would win for America 77-0_ Their dumb assed QB McGee repeated the same stuff but when asked "Had you ever been to California or did you actually even know anything about the University of California ( he admitted "no") He soon learned something as he spent most of the game on his ass. Cal switched to 2nd string before halftime (Tedford hated to run up scores in those days) and by the end a senior on his first college play scored in a 45-10 drubbing. It later turned out that Cal's young GOP club had higher membership than the Dems.


USC seems to have a problem with $$$ lol its the worst school academically in the Pac 10 which is a great academic conference.

Heck no.

1. Longhorns




2. Texas Teams
3. 10 other Big 12 teams.
4. SEC teams
5. Other conference teams




6. anyone playing OU.

When USC beat OU in the national championship in 2005, I couldn't be more happier. I don't hate USC either anyway.

USC yes I will explain - read the wall street journal (Sept 1999) on the expose on US News and World Report rankings. Their problems have been rampant for years and if you're ignorant to it -well maybe you went to ... USC Now it is possible that USC is as good or better than WSU and OSU and its better than most but not all Texas universities but it is not in the same league academically as Cal-Berkeley, Stanford, or UCLA the other California Pac 10 schools.
