14 Years later Bevo's pen returns to size

This is the best moment for Nebraska since the '97 Title, and the worst for Texas since getting shellacked 65-13 against Oklahoma. It appears good riddance to Stalin U in a conference sense or Texas...they now must go bleed orange with no monopoly on league offices, championship sites, and not to mention a monopoly on the big 12 media rights, which they refused to divide evenly like every other conference...Good luck trying that power play with PAC-10 schools like USC. Everything was bigger in Texas as they say, however that's no longer the case, good riddance everyone except Texas Tech appears to be saying. Even their perceptual little buddy A&M seems fed up of it and is looking at their own future in the SEC.
How soon we forget....14 years ago Texas was nationally irrelevant and looking for a conference to rebuild their reputation...remember those days when Texas lost the SWC to Baylor and TCU...were getting trounced by UCLA 66-3 at home? They had an opportunity and instead of building the life blood long term; thought narrowly about taking the riches in the now. Well, welcome to the NOW, you did it to yourself Austin. Nebraska joins the most historic (not better in football than the SEC) but most tradition rich and tradition elite conference in all of college football most likely to add Notre Dame soon. You can only take the ENRON approach so long before you collapse in on yourself. Enjoy playing up at Pullman a stadium of 35 thousand bleachers in October?..not to far from Boise actually. Oh, and your media revenue, have fun splitting that too, evenly, with teams in the Pacific Northwest.
Bevo's pen just got a lot smaller...grazing on anyone's land is no longer an option for Texas.
