Well you did seem unintelligent. I just assumed that you were still in high school. Eat crow, dipshit.
Yeah, it's only cool to tout a university's academic prowess when you actually attended the university. No one cares about your diploma from the West Texas Vocational College.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
I don't know much about Texas Tech. Why would he avoid the question and not say he graduated from there?
Personally, I don't give a shit where he went to school. The other guys are badgering him about that. Still don't understand why you wouldn't say you graduated from there.
I was taking a shot at Tech, since it's basically a vocational school compared to UT or aTm.
I have no idea what the academic standards of Texas Tech are.

Outside of petroleum engineering, their undergrad isn't highly regarded AFAIK.
They have a good law school though. It's not nearly as good as Texas', but it's a lot better than aTm's new one since they just bought it.
FWIW expect the 2014 state of TX class to be A&M heavy, it's the reason VaHorn avoided the question when I asked him how the 2014 was shaping up.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Tech is not well regarded. It is on a par with OU. Probably slightly above Alabama. I graduated from Texas. And you?
Ha Texas State? We both know that it wasn't UT-Austin. Maybe UT-Tyler.
Don't be ridiculous, OU is a better school than Tech.
It's not a great school by any means, which is why I enrolled at PSU, but it's a good school. Tech is average at best.
Well I didn't graduate from Bama so your little "unintelligent" thing or backhanded comment means nothing to me.
I grew up in Bama for the first 18 years of my life but got my bachelors in Civil Engineering from the University of Evansville and my masters in Hydraulic Engineering from Purdue. Figured I would list mine since we are all throwing it out there. Not real fair to ask VaHorn to list his and not list your own.
Edit: My father did graduate from UA with a degree in business and UA has a pretty damn good business program. Some of these schools it just depends on what you majored in.

That isn't due to kids not wanting to go to Texas anymore, it's because Sumlin is doing a damn good job at aTm.
If Texas hired a competent coach capable of keeping a staff together that cooperated with one another, then things would swing back in UT's favor.
It's nothing against aTm, just the nature of football in Texas.
IMO it will take much more than one season and Heisman to consistently change the recruiting landscape in Texas.
Being in the SEC is not going to hurt though.
Edit: I have been shocked at just how piss poor of a job Manny Diaz has done at UT though. I thought he was supposed to be the DC of the future. Along the lines of Muschamp, Chizik, Smart, Foster etc.

True. Each conference has their peaks and valleys, and SEC has definitely hit their peak. It's a good time to be an SEC member if you're a recruiter.
You and me both.
I have a lot of close friends who go there, and I thought that hire was a HR.
According to a family member who is an alum, the position coaches aren't cooperating with Diaz. He teaches a zone scheme, four deep zone IIRC, but the position coaches don't agree with him or don't like him or whatever. Supposedly the position coaches have been teaching more man than what Diaz wants. TIFWIW. I don't think a program like Texas or a coach like Mack would let things get to that point, but if Harsin continually ignored a QB coach like Applewhite then I guess Mack wouldn't have cared about coaches not getting along.
It sucks though. I can't stand Texas, but it's disrespectful to the rivalry to be that bad. Rivalries are bettered by quality competition, and Texas hasn't been up to the standards of the shoot out for too long.
Texas Lion has put his finger on it. Mack Brown is 6-9 against OU. That is a sure way for a Texas coach to get fired. We are used to beating OU.
You've only won 4 times since the turn of the century. Pretty sure OU has the lead since the end of WWII too.
I don't think it's fair for a Texas coach to be judged by his success against OU. It's only natural for the superior program to win the majority of the time.
EDIT: didn't mean to come off like such an ass. Mack has been an embarrassment though, he doesn't deserve to share the stadium with OU. As an OU fan, Mack makes me angry. Texas sucks, but y'all are better than this. Giving up 60 points to this year's OU team is pathetic, and came from a team that didn't have any heart. Stoops and Sooner Nation deserve better.

lol, you are like A&M. Desperately searching for a span of years where the W/L record is in your favor. The series is tied since WWII. Texas leads the all-time series 59–43–5. The superior team, the superior state.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but OU has more national titles than Texas.
Texas has sucked ever since scholarship limits were implemented. They could cover their missed evaluations by simply taking everyone
And conference titles and all-Americans.
But who's counting, right?
What's your opinion of Clemson's offense?
Edit: meant to quote VaHorn RE: offenses with a pulse.
