So I love what CTJ and SC and the others have been putting together, but I don't follow recruiting very much-- will this news help us land any o-linemen that might have previously been out of contention, for the 2022 class?  

We will find out in next next week or so.

SEC isn’t going to let aggy say shit about fuck after their little temper tantrum when they took us.

Especially after their little temper tantrum has delayed the expanded playoffs and the metric shit ton of cash that the SEC is going to miss out on now that the new version if and when they expand will have provisions limiting the number of schools per conferences now.

 

Their little hissy fit has conservatively cost the SEC 100s of millions of dollars in potential future earnings.

I'm always telling my kids things about the notion of fair, so today has me laughing. 

"Fair is a four letter word."

"Fair is just a feeling."

"Fair is for pig auctions and pie-eating contests."

I thought about Fair Is a Four Letter Word but it doesn't have the scale I like for title changes.

Give me something good to work with and I'm happy to do it. I've already given it some thought and I've got too much noise in my head right now to see through to something better at the moment.

Thanks.

I have been on the boards since 1997 when I was a student at Texas. We've spent decades as fans and board patrons feeling powerless to create any real change. The Internet, social media, and time building knowledge and money have brought us to the point where we can actually do something about this sport we love.

My expectation is that this does indeed help this staff, the players, future players, and the program. If we could start winning at an elite level again, that would justify the effort we have put in since early July when it became immediately evident that the Athletic Department wasn't going to be a help. 

If Texas, its layers of fanbase from the BMDs to the middles to the everyday fans, the city of Austin, and the state of Texas are truly able to harness the competitive advantages within NIL's framework, UT can have an engine built that very few other programs can rival and will put these silly ass, dark market bagman games to absolute shame. 

@immamac @RGBIII @SydneyCarton @GlenFromTheMailRoom @SquishMitten and several folks not on this board, including Bobby Burton, played huge roles in getting this going. @texifornia @Burt Macklin @Dbeasy @henrygandorf and a number of other folks (shout yourself out for positive rep if you're not named) helped get this from idea to a germinating sapling as well.

Here's to bigger and better. 

Been offline all day and about to be driving for another three hours, but thanks to every one of you magnificent bastards for putting this together.

The original expectation and the belief I still maintain is that anything for 2022's class is just gravy. This was done to begin the process of showing the base what is actually possible and to build a foundation for the future to impact the bagman game. 

Now, we launched it with good timing because we could, once the work was all coming together. And this recruiting cycle is fucking nuts in like 10 ways, so anything can happen. That's the thing, just as DKR said, "you got to think lucky. fall into a puddle of water? then come up checking your pockets for fish." As one of my business partners and buddies always says "hell, I'm starting to think that half of success in life is just showing up." So, who knows?

I would think helps a ton with 22s like Cam Williams or Agbo who likely aren't getting huge bags elsewhere. For someone like K Banks we'll see how Aggy responds but it's gotta help some.

In lieu of the new Pancake Deal, I would like to see "Flood, party of 5, your table is ready."

Not following this, but sounds like something they would do!

“You still want ‘fair?’ All right. Head north. Stop when you get to Indianapolis. Tractor pulls, cotton candy, kettle corn, and the world’s largest steer. First week in August.”

So if they would have waited and let the entire process continue through instead of rushing to finish up, there was a solid chance that the CFP expansion was going to be finalized as the top 8 or 12 with little limitations for the number of participants per conference. So having a OU and UT along with the rest of the SEC would pretty much ensure that there would be a significant disproportionate SEC representation in the new CFP, which prints money with the SEC getting an even larger part of the pie.

 

A&M pushed things forward by being bitches and with Texas and OU moving to the SEC the new wave of realignment started a bit earlier than planned and caused major shakeups across college football and delayed the CFP expansions and even gave birth the ot the alliance of conferences to attempt to limit, if not counter, the SEC proposal. So now there is major push back from all of the rest of the power conferences and the even some from the G5 that will now vote against any SEC proposed plan which will lead to a more limits on the number of schools per conference, which is hurt the SEC from both a $$ and exposure standpoint.

 

So once again, fuck those short sighted sheep fuckers

What exactly did aggy do (I mean besides be whiny bitches)and how did it effect expanding the playoff?

Nevermind, I see you explained it already.
