    He has those white boards and the original Expo markers... WW isn't 100% there imo. This whole idea of have and have-not could change with just a couple of phone calls, but people seem to be sitting and waiting around for someone else to something for them. Not happening there buddy...

    This is getting to be funny. It's like watching high school cliques form and dissolve. What's not going to be funny is when we're in the outcast clique yet again. We're upwardly mobile and need to start acting the part, not moping around like little brother who never gets to do anything the big kids do.
    We are with you all the way! So, get out there team and FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! Let's win to-day!!!

    Yes, TMTMD end up in Middle Earth and while that get all you band geeks that play Dungeon and Dragons all day all excite, it not place to be in college football.

    What has ruin collge football more than letting *******'s UCF-Boca and Miami State say they are DI, is the $300 million Longhorn Network. Fortunately, the only conference Texas may be welcomed is the SunBelt.

    Mr. Ho, although you're really stretching it about we TSOTWG folks being a bunch of DnD fans, you're spot on about Texas... the only conference that would let them run ramrod over them with their own wishes would be the Sunbelt because Wrong would see it as a "win" for the Sunbelt while the rest of the world saw it as Texas being allowed to get what they want and laughing at the rest of us while Texas was perennial winner of the SBC. That being said, I seriously doubt Texas would join the Sunbelt just to keep its network. That'd be lunacy.
