It's a long drive going the other way too! Still, the college environment is much to be preferred. Going to the opponent's place is very SEC.
The only thing wrong about it was putting it online and invading some losers’ “safe spaces.”
King has been listening to Fisher for three years and I suspect a coach would latch onto that, especially one running what people say is a complicated offense. However, that doesn't necessarily translate onto field leadership and self confidence. It's possible Johnny Football would never have seen the field had Sherman stayed was coach. Putting a guy into a real game is how you proof the pudding. King may shape up, but is this Miami game the place to try to make that happen?
I watched the YouTube video and felt like I was back in school almost 60 years ago. It was refreshing in a way seeing a bunch of college kids acting like college kids instead of the things they’re into nowadays. On the other hand, it’s just as purposely stupid as it was the first time I experienced it. Denigrating the other team is just part of the fun, and no one takes it seriously. No one from the other school is there to be insulted. And they still tell those stupid “fables”, embarrassingly lame jokes that manage to never be obscene. To Hell with the internet! Everyone just gets pissed off, and the country is all divided.
The last thing A&M or anybody needs is this shyster and his 24 offices.
Wow! Now THAT hurt!! I have to say, though, that Megan is not excellent at anything of value.

I think the kid is on lithium now. Being bipolar as hell probably both hyped and destroyed his career. Sometimes a mania helps but not for long. I assume he's straightened out now, which is good.
As many critiques of semantics are on display here, we really, really need to get t.u. in here so there is something truly to discuss (and I don't mean Tennessee, either!). Btw, this is as good a time as any to make sure we know who the real UT is!
OK, enough of this nonsense. As to who is a good school, corporate recrutors look for people who can do the job. They’ll pick grads from Georgia Tech, purdue, or A&M over those from the Iivory Tower (no names mentioned). My Dad, with an engineering degree from A&M, was a high level guy at Hallibuton for mny years. His son {me) and his roomate Barry got into one of the top 3 medical schools in the country out of A&M. My sons who went there include 2 doctors, one with an engineering degree, and another with an engineering degree who is now a high-level patent attorney for Amazon. I think that’s pretty good, and an education at a good state school like A&M can get you there, no question. Athetes on scholarship might be a different subset, but this BS about school quality is precisely that. There are a lot of fine schools out there if you’re willing to do the work.
Well, to A&M "The University" of Texas will always be "tu". They might not go for that, however :)
Reinstating the Turkey Day game will be a plus for a lot of fans. For Texas (tu) people, they'd better get ready for a new experience. Decades of feigning superiority have been eroding since Mack Brown left and they've been hiding in the Big 12, even now finding that things are tough. The SEC, to say the least, is different. Remember, Horns ppl think that they themselves are superior, not just their teams. SEC folks share a certain camaraderie that has been natural for A&M. The SEC members are about to see something different, especially if they go to a game in Austin, something I always hated doing.
first thing you learn when you go to A&M is "beat the hell out of (fill in blank). It's another tradition.....not personal (except for you-know-who in Austin).
You might pull it off but we don't get the hype tu does. Not by a long shot!! That's why it's so great to see them get sent back home like that!
I was there on vacation a couple years back. Place is a dump.
tu going down like this to WHOM in THAT PLACE and the tu fans thinking about that conference move now realize that light at the end of the tunnel is a freight train
Wow!! Where'd that come from? tu fans are more fair-weather for sure, and Austin's a different sorta place. You go there and you'll see it ain't Gainesville, Auburn, etc.
The Horns will find out that A&M is not the school they remember. They have more students, 550,000 alumni, and a better program in football. Texas has a national fanbase similar to the Yankees, but that will be harder to maintain in the SEC. It will be interesting to see how the two transferring schools get out of their financial responsibility or move up from their promise of a 2025 date.
I trust Texas & Oklahoma not to be trustworthy. Although they're saying they won't move until 2025, I wouldn't be surprised if they're hoping the Big 12 dissolves or merges, in effect rendering it non-existent. If there's no Big 12, they will likely claim they now owe nothing.
