02:52 PM ET 11.16 | One Texas rallying cry sounds a little funny in light of the school's recent lack of significant football success: "When Texas fans brag 'We Are The Joneses' while citing athletic department revenues, a highly ranked recruiting class, facilities, or apparel sales, while winning a conference title two of every fifteen years in our primary revenue driver, completely botching most of our women's sports, and settling for mediocrity in several other sports, we are bragging about unfulfilled potential. We're celebrating underachievement."

BC is a joke that makes crappy news reporter look competent. However, there is something to be said about being more concerned with winning the revenue title rather than conference titles.

I see your new name, but I havent been around much today, has anyone called for a moment of silence in memory of Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, etc?


Such a shame....
