With our last scheduled football match up against the Longhorns approaching, I was chatting with a non-ISU friend about why XII and ISU folks dislike Texas so much. They asked, “well, what’ve they specifically done to make you hate them?”

A few things off top of my head:
- Backroom scheming to leave the XII
- Complaining about Horns Down & the conference making it a penalty
- numerous questionable officiating calls, namely Jeremiah George’s forward progress strip return

What else? Can be anything ISU or XII related

Ruining the conference overall. Their constant demands being met to the point it alienated everyone else in the conference, chased off long time members, and it still wasn't enough for them so they tried to destroy the conference with ESPN and leave everyone hanging so they could get out of their grant of rights earlier to join the SEC. They are pieces of **** and one of the most hated schools in college athletics. I assume this person you were talking too wasn't a big fan of college sports.

Especially this as it truly began the musical chairs era of CFB, which led to B1G expansion and the eventual formation of the B1G West which is giving us the utter crap show of Iowa about to go 10-2 with an offense from the middle of last century. That alone is sufficient enough to garner the hatred from every other fanbase outside of Iowa and whomever gets to face them in the B1G title game.

Good points. On the last note, this guy is actually an SEC fan. Aware enough that “Texas = bad”, but not close enough to know specifics over the years. I told him they are his headache now.

This is the answer. All other points are miniscule.

At least in a few short months they’ll be the SEC’s problem and not ours.

Just wondering how long it takes for the buyer’s remorse (on both sides) to set in.

Arrogance and entitlement.

Yeah, you could actually make the case for UT not just ruining the B12, but all of college football. If you look where things have gone and are going with realignment, it really all started from B12 instability due to UT's greed. The richest athletic department in the country would stop at nothing to get even richer.
