Can we get a new mantra, please? "We're _________!"

I can’t freakin’ stand “We’re Texas.” It sounds so f’ing pompous. I cringed the first time I heard Walter Cronkite speak those words. We are not inherently better than other schools, and clearly our coaching staff is not inherently better than other coaching staffs. Stupid pr moves. Whoever came up with that catchphrase suffers from the same mentality that has infected Belmont: “Just being Texas is good enough. Just being Texas will solve all problems. Just being Texas means we’ll beat UCLA, Iowa State, Kansas St., Baylor, and A&M. Just being Texas means we can hire or recruit anybody we want. Just being Texas means we are entitled. Just being Texas means we can hang onto Muschamp with Mack Brown as HC.” I have wanted to say this for a long time, but didn’t want to upset the many who are on the kool-aid IV. And now, posters are clinging to the mantra like Dorothy saying, “There’s no place like home.” It’s not who you are, but what you do that matters. And what we’ve done lately is nothin’ to write home about.
