re: Texas and Texas A&M are always bragging about money…
You’re public stupidity noted. Checking out any listing of public university endowments, scholarship/academic fund raising, facilities improvements etc...easily show A&M is probably the best alumni supported public university in the country. None of the other public schools come close.

Well Texas is #2 right behind Harvard…they’re still public.. right? And your main source of endowment funds isn’t wealthy donors, it was forward thinking state leaders over a century ago who set aside a huge tract of land that you and UT get to split proceeds from oil and gas leases.

This is just wrong

Kentucky is a small population state (no TX or OH)
Kentucky is not a wealthy state (no Walmart or Oil Money)

Yet here they are with a broadly diversified sports program that keeps them competitive enough in all sports that they were made a Nike school years ago.

Obviously with a small state and one of the smallest athletic budgets in the conference they are able t5o finish in the Top 10 in Learfield Cup

1 Texas = massive population + oil money
2 Stanford = massive population + lots of rich people
3 Michigan = massive population + Industrial money
4 Ohio State = massive population + industrial money
5 Florida = massive population + drug money
6 North Carolina = large population + East Coast money
7 Arkansas = small population + Walmart $$$$
8 Notre Dame = national population + Catholic $$$$
9 Kentucky = small population + no money
10 Oklahoma = small population + Oil & Gas & Coal $$$$

Texas already tried that and failed, but had NIL been in play I bet Saban would have jumped

A&M tried that with LSU assistants trying to poach Chavis and Aranda
Well, they got Chavis and we all know how that turned out
and they whiffed on Aranda and we all know how that turned out

I think Aranda could do some real damage as head coach at either program

Texas tried to hire Saban back in 2013. Like in most things, Texas failed.

Aggies would never stand a chance to Okies in any fight, you all are like the Life Church of college. You think little East Texas Woodlands boys like you would be able to roll with Western Okies? HA!! Everyone up here wrestles, you all would get tossed by some big corn fee white boys. Just ask OU aka University of Rich Dallas.
