    It's hard to imagine another school with the largesse of Texas. The Permanent University Fund has pumped billions of dollars into the school's budget over the years. It has had the largest endowment of any school in the Big 12 since the creation of the conference.
    I have booked marked this blog.. good stuff daily.

    Although if you read further you will see: "The gift would be directed to an alternative-energy program for the school."

    I'm thinking revenue sharing should be the rule in this case. Just our "share" would bowl in the south endzone.

    Re: 1/2 of a BILLION $

    You guys would not believe the amount of money and resources that flow around this campus on a daily basis.

    I was on campus in Ames for 6 years while in school and have now been at UT for 3.5 years and the differences are beyond compare. From athletics to facilities to academics the wealth is spread all over this joint.

    I will always be a Cyclone at heart, but I am glad to cash my Longhorn paychecks!
