Texas lawmaker trolls Longhorns for record vs. TCU during hearing
The Texas Longhorns are on their way out of the Big 12, heading for the SEC … eventually.
It could still be a few years before the Longhorns are officially able to join their new league, and the remaining Big 12 teams aren’t going to let Texas leave quietly.
During a hearing with Texas lawmakers on Monday, Texas state senator Lois Kolkhorst ruthlessly trolled Texas. She mocked them for not winning despite having a massive budget, pointing out their 3-7 record against TCU:
Texas state senator Lois Kolkhorst asks what UT's athletic budget is
Jay Hartzell says it's $220-225 million.
Kolkhorst: That's without a winning football team
Hartzell: We've been winning, just not like we like to win.
Kolkhorst: 3-7 against the Horned Frogs

Then, she added that Texas must want to lose to Alabama instead of TCU:
Senator Lois Kolkhorst brings up TCU’s 7-3 record vs Texas in the Big 12: “Maybe you’d rather lose to Alabama than TCU.”

That is absolutely savage. Clearly, Texas lawmakers aren’t happy with the Longhorns’ planned move. We’ll see how many more of these hearings end up happening and how often the Longhorns get trolled.
