Mean ol’ Texas!

NCAA Football: Big 12 Conference-Media Day Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Stewart Mandel has updated his Program Pecking Order. Newest version here.

Like all Texas fans, I really enjoy the lie that won’t die.

Sigh:

Oh, Dan.

Anyway, on to the henhouse.

The Big 12 conference has two teams that are regal and eight teams who are in the lower two (of four) classes - six teams in the next-to-last and two teams in penury. The only reason this conference exists is because of Texas. Whether that fact exists because we were short-sighted or noble (I’d argue a bit of both), it’s the deal. I don’t buy the ‘greedy’ complaint. Every college in America would take our deal. Every one.

Agree with Stew’s rankings?
