The Big East?!

 

I miss Big East football. csb years ago me and my hoodlum friends sat in a Mexican restaurant once and the only football on the screen was Big East. We all immediately started shouting at the screen in our best fake manhole-cover-factory accents.

GO FREAKIN PITT

Little waiter dude sneakin around the edge, scared to give us more beer, scared to not give us more beer.

ucla, usc, zona, zona+ need to call texas and ou and tell them they will do a deal we can bring oSu and tech, texas and 0u get whatever we want

literally

every coed at ASU has to serve a 6-month mission to norman and austin for "reasons"

if you think Lubbock is drowning in STDs, wait til you sniff the ASU crowd.  Walk across campus and you'll catch something.  Fuck that

So I’m headed to Napa tomorrow with three other couples and just realized each couple is affiliated with a different SEC school: Texas, OU, Florida, and A&M. I feel like some sort of action should be taken. Thoughts?

Yeah V Sattui, Stag's Leap, and Matthiason are where you want to be 

if you like port, Prager is across the street from V Sattui.  Allegedly by appointment only but I've rolled in and they dgaf.  Run by 3 brothers it is a different experience from the rest of Napa, dusty, lots of random dollar bills stapled on the walls and fucking amazing dessert wine

Its been a few years since I went but if you want some other unsolicited recs and they havent burned down, Joseph Phelps in St Helena is reservation based but off the charts good.  AlsoTrefethen (Small family owned), Newton, Hall, Stags’s Leap Winery, Chateau Montelena , Frank Fanuky, Duckhorn

Are SEC schools taking a significantly larger % of their rosters from Texas HS players today than they were pre-A&M joining? Would be interested in real #s.

Not from the top 100.  Although they did pretty well in 2020.

How do we measure the success rate?

Went to a bowl? Started? X years? Drafted?

Raw numbers of bodies is a bare minimum. It doesn't explain success or failure.

I like Sequoia Grove.  I used to like Cakebread, but haven't been impressed lately.  May be because it has to travel to Georgia.

You should only tell the sooner and gator about your joke...when just the gents are having some scotch, suggest a nice circle jerk and watch aggy's face light up as he enthusiastically supports your great idea.  You can all laugh at him the rest of the trip...

Naw, ESPN, in cahoots with the SEC dictated what was to happen and everyone said yes sir. UT didn't have a say in the matter. Clearly there was no plan from any of the Big12 or Texas schools, just got played and then did what they were told.  

I thought hebolios was the dumbest poster on this site. Congrats. You're somehow dumber than someone dumber than a bag of hair.

Besides wine in recent posts, I did learn about TEX several pages back. Based on that awful YouTube clip, it was awful. I was on campus a bit earlier than that. To register in my day, you went to the Co-op, bought a big ass white book with small print and then stood in line for hours and hours before learning the class you needed was full.

But for $4 a semester hour, we didn’t bitch much.

It was in Gregory right? Had some guys tell me all about it. Evidently TEX was pretty new when I started in 96

Here's my theory...  A few years back when the B12 had their big Dog & Pony show with all the schools coming in and making arguments for why they should be added to the conference, the current members sat and watched all those presentations.  Later, UT and OU were in the bar, crying into their beers...

UT: Man, that was bleak.

OU: No shit.  Do you want to invite USF with their 15 minutes of tradition or Houston with their 15 fans AND have to put up with that asshat Fertitta?

UT: I think there is a better answer.  Two better answers, really.

OU: Whatcha thinking there, Tex?

UT: I think first we convince our B12 brethren that dividing the pie 10 ways is the best idea and not add any more weight to this sinking boat.

OU: Makes sense.  It will also send the newsrags into a tizzy.  They hate when we waste their time. I like that!

UT: Then we bide our time for a few years so that we aren't that obvious and start quietly making plans to head out for greener pastures.

OU: Pardner, that sounds like a winner!

UT: I figure we can go knock on the SEC's door.  They'll welcome us with open arms, make us lots of cash and we can put the Big 12 into our rearview.

OU:  SEC?  You want to go play with the aggies again?

UT: Can you imagine how much it will piss them off?

OU:....  <thinking... almost pulls a muscle> Damn!  You're right!  Those cultists will blow a damn gasket!

UT: AND we will piss off the Waco Baptists as well.  Win-win!

OU:  Let's do it, Tex!

Awesome. 

Now go back & read it again with Bill Clinton's voice as OU and W's voice as UT ... like in those Austin car dealership radio ads.

Shit, Doc, I forgot to mention the location. It was actually the Drum. My acronym FECES never caught on (Frank Erwin Center for Events Special).

94-98 here, TEX all the live long day.  Unless you guys drug hot ass out of Gregory I would much rather get my disappointment of learning that I was stuck yet again with an 8am class because it was the only open section in a matter of seconds than stand around and sweat my ass off to get the same news.

Tex existed in 93 or 94.  I don’t recall not using it, bit my hazy memory tells me that they helped you sign up for classes at freshman orientation.

Yep. Would be awesome all on its own, and just imagine how many aggy tears it would produce.

Had Tex telling me goodbye and good luck freshman year in 91. Not sure but we might have been the first class with it.
