    If they did transfer portal rankings, I'd bet we would have seen Dallas Football on there the last few years.

    TCU didn't get invited because they are a smallish school with no large following in a state that already has two members and a not particularly great stadium and other facilities. And they don't have a billion alums.

    We have a billion alums, are rich as Croesus, a huge stadium and facilities. And at one time a great tradition in football.

    Big ones eat the little ones, as always. Frogs can warm their hands around the fire and think about what never will happen. Or how they might have been like Miss State or Vanderbilt.

    We can sit around and imagine how great we are because we are Texas---unless we continue our current trajectory, in which case we become arkansas or a&m.

    A stiff punishment for betting on the sport you play makes sense, and most of the rest of those were repeat offenders. e.g. Burfict didn't get "12 games for targeting" he got 12 games for refusing to reform his habit of dirty play after dirty play after dirty play.

    And then, of course, the 6 games for Watson wasn't handed out by the NFL, but by a neutral 3rd party who Goodell has carte blanche to overrule, he just hasn't announced a decision yet.

    I thought the whole point of those "spend x dollars to make a team" games was to make it challenging. You could literally buy all of the $1 players and have a badass team that would win the national championship this year.

    Interesting that traditions listed for 2 other schools have actually been traditions longer at Texas
    Old Smokey. At Texas since 1953
    Cannon at ISU 1967
    Wabash Cannonball. Played at start of 4th qtr. Vince DiNino asked DKR if there was any song he wanted to hear. Coach Royal asked Vince to play Walbash Cannonball.
    KSU. Story goes that in 1968 that was the only music that survived a fire at music hall

    Of course both the schools came from Big 8

    6721,

    Schools with ZERO tradition often try to copy more successful schools.

    Visit Cullen & Webster, but only in a rental car after you take the insurance coverage and have been shopping at Carter's Country.

    Hook 'Em and Sooner Schooner are some of the best traditions in all of football.
