As long as we recruit against them, I don't think that will ever change. They are our biggest competition for Texas kids. Always will be.

I love their misery.

We will always be compare to them, we will compare ourselves to them, they will always compare themselves to us.

That's what entities that dislike each other do.

For the longest they have compared themselves to us and we lost in those eyes. Now they are beginning to compare the two programs...and they finally realize where we are headed...and where they are actually trending.

Jimbo is better than Pee Wee. And they realize the SEC is killing them. Not all of them. But more and more of them. And they are talking about it in the open now.


And fellers, it is glorious.


If they lose to USC, who boy.

It's a very tangible comparison as it impacts recruiting

Agree -- with one caveat. Only and unless they either return to achieving double digit wins on a consistent basis or they make a coaching change. Anytime they make such a change they will get a 1-2 year "bump" based on "hope and change."

It happened with Strong. It happened with Herman.

But it fizzles quickly if there is no delivery on the promise of hope and change.

Hope and change seems to be worth about 2 seasons as long as the coach doesn't crap the bed too bad.

Herman is on the verge of craping the bed

Yes I still think about tu. Only to gloat. The non reception call of a pass in 1963 by the officials in our game with them when the pass catcher left his knee impressions in the mud as he slid out of bounds followed by the ref showing a hook'em horns after the game was typical of there cheating. Shocked
I only want to gloat now. For every bad call, and stolen game. For every recruit stolen and then benched. For every presumption that they could decide our future and that they could control a private network showing only there own potential recruits. Evil or Very Mad
For their bad faith and hubris. Twisted Evil

I enjoy the continued affirmation of our correct decision to move to the SEC and leave tu in the rear view mirror. Other than that, and the recruiting angle, I have no further interest in tu.

Just think of all of the coaches that were available to the teasip big cigars.

Jimbo
Dan Mullen
Chip Kelly
the new coach at MSU
Whatshisname at Minnesota who is a heck of a coach

Its nice to see those guys taking a page from our play book on selecting coaches...except this time around.

No heartbreak here if the sips continue to struggle, but aTm is fine regardless. I'm not convinced that tu is one of our chief recruiting competition anymore. Alabama, LSU, Georgia, OU...sure, but the sips? ...just don't see it.

I agree with 12thManMVP's sentiments.

I don't see them as competition for us recruiting-wise, not with us with Jimbo in the SEC and them in the BDF, whoever they have at coach.

I no longer care the least about playing them again, although I really wanted to extend the game when we left for the SEC.

However, I do very much enjoy the schadenfreude for all of the reasons listed above by others. Big Grin

We will always be joined to the 'sips because we are some 120 or so miles apart, same state, after many of the same recruits, a history of bad blood etc. Glad there is some dissension in Austin. Considering the mess Maryland was in with their situation, the sips should've won that game. That was an embarrassment Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed .

Well they still recruit the state. They are not a huge competitor today, but with their history, media bias, etc., but if they get some momentum, we will be battling them for the best in Texas...

We are whipping them now, but still compete for the same Texas recruits. Their media advantage etc. exists and will exist, along with a still larger alumni (former student) advantage. Not sure from here the relative status of t-shirt fan advantage they have. Simple geography makes them rivals. We just don't need to play them, other than bowl games, for a long, long time. But I'll be there when we do. I still can't get rid of my sisters' cackle as she hooked 'em horns two seats down from me during the last game. First (and only) traitor to the family.....
