  1. Now, compare UT's "Welcome to the SEC" video with aggie's https://streamable.com/zdou1v
  2. I think you're close if we don't turn the ball over. The Cyclones will try to run the ball and the clock if they're smart. I see a small letdown after the 0u dismantling, but confidence and momentum are building. We're a different team with The Mullet at QB. TEXAS 34 Iowa St 13
  3. I guess it has changed since I stopped officiating in 2018. I've heard of programs selling chain gang spots as a booster club fundraiser. Great view from the sidelines and an opportunity to get close to the game. Oh, well, those were the good ol' days. But, I still think $60 for a couple hours work should entice HS kids. All they've gotta do is pay attention, keep up, and shut up.
  4. The "210" on the left side of their helmets is f'n stupid IMO. Kids today...
  5. Why not? I've had to tell more than one volunteer dad to STFU during a game while working H. If he didn't comply, it'd be on the offending team to replace him with a student manager, assistant coach, or whoever. Disallowing volunteers affiliated with the home team is just dumb. Some districts contract TASO officials - usually the FNGs - to work the chains on Friday nights. This is easier to do for suburban and city schools. It was usually volunteer dads out in the country with 3A and smaller schools.
  6. TASO officials are independent contractors who don't get paid much. A head coach and school can "scratch" officials and crews from working their games, if displeased with performance, but that's about it. Local chapter leadership can dismiss officials for gross incompetence if they're really bad. But, then they've gotta back-fill with unproven newbies who may be even worse.
  7. Having officiated TASO football for 10 years, it's mostly because the pay doesn't make up for the bullshit from coaches, fans, and your local officiating chapters. I never had a game postponed due to "no chain crew", however. Seems like it shouldn't be too hard to find 3 dads or students to volunteer while paying them $50 each to do it.
  8. I like stripes on the pants and TV numbers. Sue me
  9. You spelled "mediocre" wrong, aggy. Especially when reviewing your overall SEC record. 46-35 = 56% Actually, that's better than A&M did in the SWC or Big 12.
  10. Kids value money, cars, and girls more than alternate uniforms. See Bama
  11. You don't say? https://aggypedia.com/aggypedia/aggy-athletics/the-twelfth-man-a-football-phrase-with-disputed-roots/
  12. We really suck if we can't win with NIL and free agency. Who's got more advantages than UT in the new CFB landscape?
  13. Nah Newsom may push for UCLA to share their proceeds with Berkeley like good communists. "It's best for the UC system." He'd be a damn fool to block the move even if he has the power to do so. Stanford, OR, or WA would be ready to take their place.
  14. Funniest part of this speculation is CA has banned paid travel to Texas and other red states for public employees. I doubt Berkeley wants to be associated with TX and OK. Just saying.
  15. Pac-10 has less leverage than the Big 12, though. Only way they stay together is if they appease UO and UW with a larger piece of their smaller pie. From what I've read, their media rights with USC & UCLA were worth $500 MM ($42.6 per team). Without them, it's assumed to only be worth $300 MM, if not less.
  16. Yeah, the rumor is NBC will contract with the Big 12 for either T1 or T2 media rights. These games will be featured when ND is on the road and as lead-ins for ND home games. I think UT & OU will be in the SEC by 2024. Yormark will settle because he'll want to start building the Big 12's new, "young, hip, & cool" brand. Any time spent featuring or talking about UT/OU detracts from the Big 12, especially if they add 4-6 PAC teams as speculated.
  17. When aggy starts competing for and winning desirable recruits with UT bc of an SEC badge, it's time to move on. Especially when ESPN will double our media rights payouts. It's really a no-brainer for us. I'd much rather be in the SEC than the B1G or PAC.
