Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

Yesterday, the Texas Senate held a hearing on the state’s flagship university’s decision to leave the friendly confines of the Big 12 for the SEC.  Given there isn’t a damned thing the legislature can do about that, it was the perfect setting for politicians to show their butthurt and posture for the public about how awful Texas is.  Empty gestures, for the win.

Some of the posturing sounded like it was ripped straight from the pages of your favorite school’s message board (hell, for all I know, it was).  Here are a few tasty morsels:

LOL.  That showed ’em!

    The people ridiculing Texas may be ineffective in influencing the move, but they aren’t wrong about Texas. TX is run by an army of little versions of Jerry Jones. They’re loaded, they’re accustomed to getting their way because they’re loaded, and they’re happy to let everyone else know how far below Texas the rest of the rabble is.

    Texas has been a lousy partner because they’re the collegiate embodiment of entitlement. They’re Alabama arrogance with Vanderbilt money, Tennessee accomplishments (once good, fading for years), GT delusions of return to glory, and AU deviousness in service of wins. What could possibly go wrong?

    Sankey has made one of the classic blunders: never go against TV execs, when cash is on the line. But hey, all the ADs will get nice raises and fancier offices out of this. All fans will get is the bill.

    Can you win elections in Texas by ripping UT? I was under the impression most Texans liked UT (or A&M which already left the Big 12 for the SEC a decade ago).

    The senator’s comment that “your fan base would rather lose to Alabama than TCU” was priceless. True. But priceless.
