All that SEC money will be great for them, but they better start dominating the Big 12 on their way out.   It might be nicer to lick your wounds in a palace than a mansion.  But either way you are in pain and nicer surrounding don't matter as much. That OSU nut kick was on national TV also just like all their games against midrange SEC schools will be.

Good. Glad to see those dbags lose. I don't know why they get excited at the start of every year?  They typically return to mediocrity around mid October. 

Well, that’s when the play the UNTs of the world and win 65-0. Shorthorns get national title boners usually after the first 3 weeks.

Steve Sarkisian’s contract at UT is for six years at 34.2M (let’s just call it 30M to keep the math simple and clean).   So, that’s 5M a year.  At least three of his assistants have guaranteed million dollar contracts.

He also has the most profitable football program in America, so no shortage of resources.  

What’s the ROI on this?   A 4-3 record with signature wins against ULa-La and Texas Tech…and being outscored by a total of 41-7 in the 4th quarters of their past two games.

Aren’t they like one of the only teams that really makes a huge amount of money on their investment? Or is that an aged stat.

The two richest athletic programs in the nation alternate between tu and Ohio st. And they want even more.

The NCAA should create the Monopoly Conference.

Only the 10 richest programs in college football would be in this conference:  UT, Ohio State, Michigan(?), Alabama, Wisconsin, A & M, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Oklahoma, USC.  And whoever.

Athletic budget has to be in excess of $750,000,000 per year, not including coaches salaries.

How about a league system like what the Euro soccer leagues do, but you move up/down conferences based on revenue.

 TOU both visit Waco and Baylor’s defense is stout with a solid QB so I’m optimistic 

Aranda isn't long for Baylor.

My LSU booster friends are all aboard the Lane Train.  With every touchdown at the mele in Knoxville they would just start yelling Choo Choo.
 

Lane in the Bayou with the athletes he could draw to Death Valley would make the West even more Interesting!

Give me Liberty and give me a Win!

Maybe. Somehow Lane really seems to vibe with that part of the country. But they would really have to money whip Lane to a ridiculous degree (talking Jimbo Fisher at A&M kind of contract, where he can leave whenever he wants and the school gets nothing, but they have to pay up full to get rid of him). Despite some of his successes, I am not sure you can justify this for Lane Kiffin.

That isn't the case because he makes so much money, but because 1) he enjoys himself and learnt the value of that the hard way, and LSU is a different kind of pressure than his current job and 2) he is aware that if he leaves early and this goes south for any reason, this time there will be no coming back from it. He needs to stick it out a bit longer to not look like he jumps at every and any opportunity and 3) (and this is the most important) any reason could include NCAA problems. Those are currently pending at LSU. Everybody expects a slap on the wrist, but it isn't out yet. Feels oddly like when he took USC. Everybody expected a slap on the wrist, but it was fairly crippling and the fan base and media never properly evaluated how good they were considering those. That title 9 and me too stuff however, is a wild card in current political climate. Because he has seen a penalty wild card blowing up in his face first hand, I would expect him to be particularly unlikely to want that risk unless he has the kind of contract where he is essentially unfireable. He might flirt to get a better contract at Ole Miss, but I doubt he leaves.
