    "The most recent data, however, strongly suggests the gap is also growing between the rest of the haves and the University of Texas."

    I like this last line from the article. You think??

    Wow, their football program brought in $87,600,000, and their AD is asking Longhorn fans to buy tickets to the BCS championship even if they can't go, just to make it look good? I thought "every team does this."


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    They are the best team in the biggest football state in the country. It makes sense. It's just unfortunate that we have to compete against them within the conference. Letting them into the Big 12 probably made it happen for them.

    Re: UT banks $87.6 million from football program in 08-09

    sorry to say, even if it hurts my cyclones, it is time to start taxing college sports. That number is crazy. It is no longer an educational endeavor - it is a business, plain and simple.

    Also, why in the world wont the big 12 split income from TV appearances among all B12 teams? These guys have plenty to share.
