Interesting story at Politico.com: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83776.html?hp=r9
For argument's sake, let's suppose Texas did leave the union.
How would this impact college football? Recruiting?
Would players at other schools needs passports for road trips to Texas?

I will move to Texas if they seceed.
South Padre Island?

That's make it tough for a republican to win the White House.
Honestly, if the Republican party doesn't start appealing to Hispanics ASAP, they run a serious risk of Texas turning blue sometime in the next 15-20 years.
I agree with this.

I guess the Lomghorn Network would be a nationwide channel at that point.
Oklahoma fans would have to go through customs every year for the Red River Rivalry.
What if Mexico invaded? Would the U.S. help or be pissed and not help?
Remember the Alamo...dome?
OU seems like they would probably be hurt the worst outside of Texas in recruiting.
That's why I bet you see Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio at the center of the Republican candidate race in 2016.

JC bringing the laughes.
If Texas left, I think you would see a good bit of the south leave as well. I would say the "Republican L" would leave with Texas. Could be wrong but just a guess. I think it would hurt recruiting in the South bc many people would leave and go North.
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
At which point all the things that make Texas an attractive place will cease to exist.
OK, so I voted for Romney this time. I voted Obama last time and Kerry and Gore before that. I'm as independent as they come.
But this type of crap just shows you how both parties do nothing but grandstand just to get re-elected.
So ok we have serious issues right now. Rick Perry go make an ambiguous statement neither supporting nor completely condemning a nut job.
Same reason Obama was re-elected- let's paint Romney as some money grubbing miser that would just as soon take a leak on a poor person as give him a dollar for soup. Everybody buys it because everybody is broke.
Reagan and Clinton were the two best presidents during my lifetime because they went to work for the good of the country every day. I think George W. Bush, though I never voted for him, did the best he could given some challenging decisions he had to make. Not saying they were the right ones, mind you, but he acted on what he thought was right.
The rest of these clowns, including Bohener the Suntan Man, Harry Reid and his nude Cowboy art festival, Mitch I am a Turkey personified McConnell and everybody's favorite liberal gal Nancy Pelosi are some if the most spineless, self-absorbed, ridiculous, cartoon-like leaders in the history of our country. They are nothing but power-hungry ideologues whose sole purpose is to get re-elected.
That's not to mention the legions of wharf rats that make up the staffs and advisors for our so-called leaders.
For example, I don't think Barack Obama hates white people and is out there waiting to cry racism at every turn (even though race relations are infinitely better than they ever have been)...but Eric Holder is!
Same thing with John Ashcroft and his crusade against nude statues in the W years.
We need to get back to leadership and we need to start electing smart people. Likewise we need those smart people to appoint and elect (like for House speaker, etc.) smart people.
Otherwise this country is going to continue its decline regardless of what the American people want because we are going to continue to be given two horrible choices. The most electable will continue to be favored over the "best leader".
Anyway, I just cover college football recruiting. What do I know? I will say I still believe in this country and believe in the American dream because I've lived it to date. I hope to continue to and hope future generations can as well. I think if we start electing leaders rather than politicians, that dream will stay alive.
God bless you all and may God bless the United States of America.
Out on hardcover, June 2014: J.C.'s manifesto
This should be fun to watch....
You of all people have no right to support that statement.
I love how you think everything is going so swell, but one day you will look back on what this country once was and you will realize just how wrong you were.
Longest post I've actually read the whole way through on here.
The people on the right sound exactly what the people on the left sounded like when Bush got re-elected for his 2nd term...
When the economy is not better in four years...and likely worse, we will see who the idiots are.
Like I said...
No I am not, I do have to live here you know and I graduate in a year. But it will happen...just watch.
