I'd be scared. Texas A&M just pounded OU...who pounded Texas. If Texas isn't careful Texas A&M is going to take over that state. If Mack goes 8-4 again next year I'd tell him to gtfo.
Texas A&M will own the state before the season or mid season next year. The wagons were already in motion and this is just speeding it up. If Texas had any balls they get rid of Mack Brown. This is similar to fsu and UF. We owned the state at the time and then Meyer came around while we held on to Bowden and the rest was history.
If I were UT, I would (a) move a bunch of my games to a network most of my fanbase can't get, (b) assign my TV rights to a lame-duck conference for 13 years so I have no way out and (c) give Mack Brown another raise and extension. Oh, sorry, they already did that. Nevermind.

SEC took the superior football team out of Texas and we are very happy for the Aggies.
Texas also just hired Larry porter. A guy their fans spent years telling us how he was the dirtiest recruiter in Texas. The guy they told us was working with street agents in Texas. Desperate times in Austin.
But they have Mack Brown! & they're Texas! & they're a young team! & Tyrone Swoopes, the best QB recruit in the world is coming in!
Nah, they'll be just fine. I have a good feeling about this. <- Not Sarcasm
Thanks & Gig 'Em

Tough times in Austin for the next couple of years. Should fire Mack and hire nick next week, pay him whatever it takes.
great game aggies! welcome to the sec! wanted ya'll in the conference since 1992. you have always been my favorite team in the swc/big 12.
You gonads have one good season and act like the past 15 years didnt happen.
Grats on finally having a good season, but act like you've been there before
Anomaly, Texas would tap aTm's ass..
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Texas will always own the state, don't let one season or even a few fool you.
Texas will be fine, Mack is holding them back, but he'll be gone after next year if they don't win and then Texas will be back again. You don't change history in a few years. A&M will never overtake Texas
A little late for that. You know UT is desperate when they're rooting for OU.
If the trend continues I agree with you but one year doesnt spark immediate change. Well still get our recruits and so will they. Are they the hottest team in the state right now? Hell yeah but does it mean theyll take every top recruit in the state? No it doesn't. It doesn't mean well get them either. Itll be more split evenly than it has been in years past.

Great post. Texas A&M has taken Texas by storm. It's over for Mack. The pendulum has swung to A&M. They will dominate all through Sumlin's tenure. Probably be the no. ranked team coming into next season. Playing for crystal trophies now.

I guess we found out why Texas was doing all they could to avoid the aTm matchup if OU would have made a BCS Bowl. Maybe that's why they lost to TCU.
One of the more logical posts on here. Don't look now, but I think I just agreed with a horn!
+1 for your dear sir. Sorry I didn't even get to your post. I couldn't get past your avatar.
Im fairly easy to agree with. Ive mastered the art of "on the fence"
If Texas makes the right hire after Mack then A&M goes back to being A&M.
I agree with this. aTm is hot and will probably go on a great run in recruiting Texas for a couple of years. Once Texas gets rid of Mack and brings some more stability to things though, they should see a good bounce back though, IMO.
Would corch urbs be available by any chance?
Surprised Big Game Bob got embarrassed in a big game. Oklahoma would have lost to Texas State last night its all but guaranteed. Texas and Oklahoma need coaches. Plenty of talent at both schools. Jmo
In regards to the tidal shift in the state of TX, keep in mind that this season could not be further from an anomaly. A&M went into a NEW conference, NEW head coach, NEW off. coord., NEW def. coord, and NEW AD. They had no business winning anything... Just ask any media outlet.
The biggest thing never gets mentioned is Kevin Sumlin. He is a young black coach that identifies with young black players. (Did you ever think that Tupac would be played over the speakers at an A&M practice?) He is very smart offensively and does a nice job on defense as well. He's taught his guys to believe in him and his system. The swagger of Kevin Sumlin landing a helicopter next to high school football games versus Mack Brown handing Werther's Original butterscotch out to kids is why the momentum will be sustained. Remove Mack, its a different ballgame. Keep the status quo and the snowball only gets larger. Long live Mack!!!
I laft at the werthers originals.
