This is in response to a blog I read about how the Big 12 is really coming down hard on the Longhorn football program and its fans while the rest of the nation supports our gripe. I had someone tell me one time a good way to determin greatness is to look at your rivals! In the college football only a select few are disputibly 1 schools When biggest rival.
When you look at Texas what school coonsider us their biggest rival? Texas Tech? Baylor? Oklahoma? Texas A&M? That is an easy question to answer. ALL OF THEM! Tech of course has their little rivalry with A&M and OU has their with OKLA ST but if you were to poll all the fans of all the schools including Arkansas the overwhelming number would be Texas! People in Arkansas would have gave up the LSU game to beat us i promise you. Our slogan in commercials for years showed greatness and suppiorority over everyone. "WE ARE TEXAS"! Now of course the old Big 8 schools will side with OU. Nebraska has reason to hate Texas. They had the first Big 12 title stolen from them 1 glourious Sat in Dec 96 they havent forgotten that in KSU will always follow the Old Big 8.
Only a select few schools have more than ! school want to beat them more than any school. USC, Alabama, Michigan Notre Dame, Florida and Texas! that is a great honor to have. It shows the respect that we as a school really garner through out our conference and our country. To be in a class like that is 2nd to none. be proud Texas. Its all a big sign of respect.
ps. Tech is just sore that they got left out of the conversation at the end of the year. Oh ya they are about to go back to the toilet and they know it. Say goodbye Tech Mike Leach is going BYE BYE!
