That's the real story here. Mack already has a ski trip planned with his dogs. Nothing to see here
I just want to go to the best bowl possible.
Wouldn't shock me if the story is true. The sips already asked other schools in the state to not schedule us. They even try to silence fellow sips or sip media that try to speak objectively about the program. That's just the way roll.
If that's even remotely true, how pissed off would you be if you were a player at texas? That your administration is too chicken shyt to let you play a football game?
I think we should decline as well. I don't care to play them either. Feeling is mutual.
It's definitely real.
I understand where the sips are coming from. They know we would totally embarrass them which they can ill afford in recruit mining. It aint no different in StoopsLand. ZeroU is going to turn down the Fbowl for the exact same reason; too much risk.
Irony is that it gets worse for tu anyway. They will go to Dallas for a HUGE beatdown by the Purple Gang from Baton Rouge.
All in all it's going to be an interesting Bowl season I for one am looking forward to seeing the B12 teams get totally exposed

Feeling isn't mutual. I want to beat the crud out of them. Half the people we know are t-sip fans or t shirt fans and still talk trash on a daily basis. Our kids still grow up and their friends are trying to convince them tu is superior. They are the anti-aggie.... Libral vs conservative, city vs country, weird vs normal. They are our rival still, no matter if we play them or not on a yearly basis. It's just part of being a Texan. It transcends sport.
We shouldn't back away from anyone, if they invite us to play we should want to go stomp a mud hole in them and anyone else, not because we need to but because we can.
And the SEC shouldn't need to prove anything after 6 championships in a row but there are still those Pac12 and big 10/12 fans that question that question why the SEC gets the high rankings. Take the team names out of it, coming in as the 5th ranked SEC team and beating a 2nd or 3rd ranked Big 12 team reminds everyone why.
