Well, to be fair John, Texas demonstrated the ability to win with their own formula a few years ago, so looks like they will do at least okay with this model. What we have proven though, with every article you publish that has A&M and Austin in it, is just how much the Austinites don't belong in the SEC. No sense of style, at all. Sort of one note ponies, "We hate A&M," is all they got. Can't beat Bama, LSU, Arkansas, Auburn, UF, et al, but in the last 30 years, by golly they could bat .50 - .50 against the Ags. Big whoop, lots of trash talk and not much else......
Yeah, that's what your league is known for..."style". 7-1-1 against Bama. 55-21 against Arky, who cancelled the 2009 game with UT to play...A&M. Don't recall playing either Auburn or UF in the last 30 years. #2 Winning-est program in CFB all time. Richest athletic department in the NCAA. Plenty of substance "Bonzai".
Incidentally, have you got your oxygen mask ready for your nose-bleed seats at Kyle Field yet? Assuming that you got a ticket after A&M screwed y'all out of 2,500 seats. http://www.gatorcountry.com/swampgas/showthread.php?t=233520
Oh, and Aggy's only real success against The University occurred while their unscrupulous coaches, both Jackie Sherrill and R.C. Slocum, cheated their way to a few SWC titles. But, I guess that's business as usual in the ESS EEE CEE.
Wow...y'all sure are dominating against non-conference opponents. http://www.thepostgame.com/commentary/201208/better-without-em-northern-manifesto-southern-secession-chuck-thompson-sec-bcs
See ya'll in Oxford!
@JB TexasEx Like I said, all you got is hate. Not a thing positive in anything you say about anyone. You are too ignorant to have style. Style requires give and take. I don't think the Big 12 lacks style, but we know you don't have it. So wrap yourself in your school colors and do your sixth grade rants troll. The only thing you do with your posts is convince us you don't have what we want, and loads of what no one else does.
@BonzaiB Bless your little heart, Bubba, for feeling compelled to reply with such long-winded, nonsense. "If you deduct 3 points for the HOME team, Bama wins one and Texas wins the other by a single point." LOL...and if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle. Rice was fairly dominate in the 50's, too, since you're a trivia buff. Here's one more fact about the "dominating" SEC; 21-17 all-time versus the B1G in bowl games.
TAMU won't be "eating our lunch" b/c they're not, and won't be, on the schedule anytime soon. Aggy averaged sixth place in the Big12 and improved their record to 5th against the titans of the SEC West; Arky, Ole Miss, Miss St. and Au-barn.
LOL...We're Texas. Learn it, know it, live it. ESS EEE CEE!
Your 7 - 1 - 1 should be taken in context
5 of those games were played in Texas
1 game was played in Alabama in 1902!! ====> 110 years ago!
Since 1970 Texas has played Alabama 3 times
13 - 17 in the 1973 Cotton Bowl
12 - 14 in the 1982 Cotton Bowl
37 - 21 in the 2010 BCS MNC (played in the neutral state of California)
While I will be happy to give Texas the credit for the Cotton Bowl wins they did not exactly blow the Tide out in those games. If you deduct 3 points for the HOME team, Bama wins one and Texas wins the other by a single point. The point spread on the 2010 game is way more than 3 points. If you really want to play the 7 - 1 - 1 card then bring up the domination Vanderbilt has on Texas! The cellar dweller of the SEC has a record of 8 - 3 - 1 against the mighty Bevo with 9 of those games played in the state of Texas. Texas got beat in their own house and only made 4 trips to Nashville where the Dores defended their house with a perfect 4 - 0 record and some dominate games - 6-0 / 33-0 / 45-0 / 14-6. In short they whupped your team so bad the folks in Austin stopped playing them and started playing Oklahoma at the State Fair instead.
Claiming 55 - 21 against the Hogs is just as delusional. Most all those games were when the Hogs had to play second fiddle in the SEC. here is the record since the Hogs joined the SEC
1/1/2000 the Hogs won 27 - 6 in the Cotton Bowl
9/13/2003 the Hogs won 38 - 28 in Austin
9/11/2004 the Horns won 22 - 20 in Fayetteville
9/27/2008 the Horns won 52 - 10 in Austin
That is a 2-2 record vs an SEC team and is not as lopsided as adding the SWC years to puff the numbers
Who cares if Texas has the #2 spot in all time wins if those wins came from teams with little or no college football prowess. Playing the Tide once in a blue moon is not like playing the Tide, Vols, Tigers, Auburn, Dawgs, and Hogs all the time year after year. The funniest part of all is talking about all that money. Even being that rich puts you #3 in the B12 behind Oklahoma and Nebraska with much smaller pocketbooks. All that money and you still can't buy you way to the top or buy class. Have fun when when TAMU eats your lunch in a decade or so with the SEC family. You can say it will not happen but the history does not seem to agree. Tulane got overshadowed by LSU and Georgia Tech has fallen behind Georgia. Clemson once dominated South Carolina but the worm has turned since the Cocks joined the SEC. Enjoy your past because it is all you will have someday if you keep up the arrogance.
See you in the funny papers because you seem to think Sagarin defends your points when you can not win on the field against the big boy schools. Bless your little heart
You're a "real man", Bonzai. You are a d-bag b/c you engaged in the same behavior that you're calling me out on. Lame, condescending smack-talk. Hypocritical. A&M fits right in with you turds. LOL...more respect from Ags on a SEC blog! What does that make you? The tallest midget?
Oh, I can handle you and most ESS EE CEE bloggers. I'll check in from time to time locked and loaded. Looking forward to Ole Miss in Oxford. Hook 'em.
@JB TexasEx Again, no ability to read. I did not say I did not like Texans, said exactly the opposite. How is it you always twist what others write?
Again, the mark of a man full of spittle and not much else. And d-bag? Can't handle someone calling you out for your behavior and you go to d-bag?
Lord, I am getting a whole lot more respect for Ags every time you post.
@BonzaiB Reading comprehension is a struggle for you, huh, Bonzai? I couldn't careless if you're "done with me" b/c you haven't contributed anything of substance. Just a long-winded diatribe about how you don't like Texans and me in particular.
GFY, d-bag and Go Gators on Sept. 8th
@JB TexasEx "True, we don't like A&M. They're dishonest, hypocritical and delusional."
You're too slow to even remember what you wrote. I'm done with you. I like a battle of witss, but you are an unarmed man (or are you just a teenager with a keyboard?)
I didn't classify "an entire student body". You did. I will, however, classify their misguided administration as such. That's your problem, d-bag.
@JB TexasEx Again, you have failed the reading test. And yep, you have given me a bad impression. Anyone, and I mean anyone, who is stupid enough to classify an entire student body as dishonest, hypocritical and delusional has some real issues that go to the heart of being an adult. It would be like me classifying all University of Texas graduates as slimey, hateful and immature based on your comments (which are hateful, but I'm sure the Ags out there are used to this level of discourse from you by now). I won't do that, because that would be stupid, ignorant and wrong. My problem is not with Texans in general, but you in particular. You cannot possibly be dumb enough to think you can back up, "They're dishonest, hypocritical and delusional," with FACTS. That borders on a form of derangement syndrome (come back and try to prove that with facts by the way, and you will have proven my point).
Nah, you're just a guy who does not get it. We don't call Vandy grads delusional because they stand by their team, we ADMIRE them for the grace and style with which they stand for their school, which doesn't do as well as some others. Gators don't like FSU, but we admit they more often than not are good eggs and we want them to be up for us when we play them. Auburn doesn't like Bama, but you rarely find an Auburn guy who has so little intellect that he resorts to calling Bama grads, as a group hypocrytical.
Anyone who generalizes their hatred across an entire student body is a jerk. Notice I did not say all graduates of Texas are jerks, I said your comments put you in that category. That's why I said you don't have style, you think quoting game stats from 50 years ago proves that, what half a million grads from a school are hypocrytes?
Go away little man. This is an SEC site, and we don't much tolerate those whose whole purpose in life is spewing garbage. We're not above having some fun with each other, but you aren't here to have fun, you are here to hang on to something we don't much care for.
True, we don't like A&M. They're dishonest, hypocritical and delusional. I'm sorry if I've given you a bad impression, but you haven't contributed anything to "give and take" either. I usually back my assertions with facts.
No, I didn't get it wrong. We've played Arky 3 times (2-1) in the 2000's since they bailed for the SEC, most recently 2008. http://www.mcubed.net/ncaaf/series/tx/ark.shtml
Yes, Arky did cancel the 2009 game to play A&M at Jerry World. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3330531
