I wonder if part of Tech's problem, besides how monumentally stupid it was of them to fire Leach just so their admins could win a dick-measuring contest, was TCU joining the Big 12. Before that, they were the only P5 team in northern Texas. It's also a program that does not have a single outright conference or division title in the last 60 years. That's right - not once have they finished alone in the #1 spot in the Big 12, Big 12 South, or SWC. The last time it happened to them was in 1955 in the farce known as the Border Conference (which Tech won with an undefeated conference record most years despite generally finishing with 2 to 5 ooc losses).
