Talking about getting Urban in a thread. What does their arrogance come from? What exactly do they have to be arrogant about? I have been there many times, and it isn't terrible, but half the people don't even speak English, and crime is through the roof in the cities. It gets 110 degrees quite often, and they have horrible tornados. The women are very hot, but they are high maintenance. The level of education is not good as an average. What is the fuckin' draw? Austin is a nice town, but after that, you're done. I will never understand the arrogance of Texas.
You are a closed minded idiot.
The arrogance is with the University and not the people of Texas. They are humble folks that love their state. Sounds a lot like people from Ohio or where ever you might be from.
Seriously, don't you have a KKK rally to attend?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Not sure I share the same opinion as you on the people.
However, as far as The University of Texas, I think that Meyer would be the least likely of coaches to leave amongst the one's on Texas' so called "short list".
I'm not even sure why this is even gaining any traction. There is no benefit of Texas over Ohio State. They can both pay him the same and both are considered Top 5 schools to coach at. Most Analysts would call Ohio State a Top 3 place to coach at due to the size of our fanbase, amount of money at our disposal, and recruiting power.
Leaving Ohio State for Texas would make no sense, even Meyer himself said that he didn't think anything "was broken" at Ohio State when he took this job. Said we had some people in here that made a bad choice once and got alot of bad publicity out of it. Ohio State was never "gone" and therefore us being "back" after going 12-0 is overstated.
...Now Texas on the other hand has been what Mark May likes to call "Mediocre" They ain't been shit since McCoy's final year and even then they weren't as good as they were with Vince Young. Texas is a broken program that needs to be rebuilt. Why would Meyer invest the time he has in building up Ohio State just to go to Texas 4 years later and start over again? and do it for the same amount of money we could pay him? Doesn't make sense, him being on their shortlist is a waste of time, they've got no chance.
I love Texas. The Longhorns are an interesting fan base. As rabid as ours, with way more money (see: oil), and less accomplishments. As a person who thought that I would go to UT as a youngin' and a brother who is an alum of that institution, its a great school. They are just delusional. Im a Buckeye but can still be rational. Please lets not disparage the state. I love my State (texas). The big cities are great as well. If you dont like large cities then thats your prerogative.
Having lived in the hill-country of Texas for 6 years, I can say with complete honesty that it was a wonderful place to live. I loved it there.
I live here now. Not a fan of exactly where I live but the people are nice. The pride is of the whole state of texas....it is seen in the flag. The lone star state. They are the only state to have ever governed themselves with their own president....Sam Houston. He led a totally outnumbered army being chased by Santa Anna...and backtracked on them and defeated them in under an hour. They have immense pride in this fact. "dont mess with Texas". They do things their own way...they take pride in this. They are a different breed and highschool football is like no other place here....They love their guns, prefer boots over shoes, they love their beer and liquour, Willy Nelson is a God, Rubbin is racin, Texas Football is the best, if ya don't know how to line dance somethin is wrong with you boy and the women got bling on everywhere, are sexy swagger and brazen...it is a different but a very nice place.
I've lived in Texas and been around a lot of Texans in other places I lived...and I really like them. They have a lot to be proud of in Texas. Great cities, vast acres of countryside in rural areas, wonderful people...
The reason Meyer is on their short list is the same reason Meyer was on OSU's short list the entire time he was at UF.
There are two places in the world where American football is not just a game. One is Ohio. The other is Texas. Neither accepts a loser. Both think it is acceptable to build HS stadiums which seat 20K if the people will come. Both have multiple professional teams.
Personally, I love Texas and love Texans.
Settle down cowboy, just because his opinion of texans is not in alignment with yours does not make him fit for the KKK... Texas is quite proud of their state from the ones I've known, and that's not a bad thing but I have known several to be quite arrogant about it.
Meyer's on everybody's short list. Well, everybody's wish list....
Always had a good time in Texas, from El Paso to Dallas to Houston. Nice people and strong-minded. Good fishing and hunting, hot women, people like drinking beer, good weather. If I didn't live in Ohio I would have Texas on my short list.
I drove through Odessa, pulled up to Permian HS to see the field Friday Night Lights was written about. This was 1999. No joke, a couple janitors let me on the field and got a pic of me running on it. They loved talking HS football and actually were interested in the OH HS scene, they had respect for it.
This is something that Husker has been vomiting for years on this board. He is an arrogant self righteous bigot. You don't have to make racial innuendoes about Hispanic people just because you don't like a state.
Bigot? You are out of line, and obviously thin skinned. I prefer people to speak English and be in this country legally. That isn't much to ask. As for Hispanics, I have many that I consider like family. They are the most disgusted by the lack of education, and disregard for the law that many from their own country exhibit.
As for Texas, I love to hunt and drink beer with the best of them. In fact I would wager that I hunt and fish more than anyone on this forum. Where do all of the Texans go to shoot the largest deer in the world? North. I have friends in Texas, they are not bad people at all. I am talking about the state itself. It is a hot mess 5 months a year and has immigration problems worse than any state besides maybe Cali. The residents act as if it is paradise itself, I have never understood this.
Texas Bucknuts, I thought people in Texas had balls, grow some, and stop being a PC little bitch.
I have heard your tired act before. I hunt and fish all over the country which makes me an expert on the best places to live. Nebraska doesn't have immigration problems because it is in the middle of the f'cking country. No shit, that Texas has some immigration problems. The whole country does.
The state isn't a hot mess 5 months a year. It is brutal in July and August and occasionally in early September.
Maybe if you weren't such a close minded modern day Archie Bunker you would understand that other people take pride in their state above and beyond the ones you deem as OK to live in.
You need to go away
Texas is a fine state, but UFM isn't going anywhere.
I will say the "everything is bigger in Texas" is a tires routine, or "Texas, it's like a whole other country. It's a bit much for my taste, no other state in the union self promotes as much as Texas......txbucknut, why do think that is?
Ohio State.......our nuts will kill you
Do you think some of that might be tongue and cheek?
I lived in Nashville for some years and Tennessee people think they live in the greatest state in the world. They love talking about it. I lived in Boston for a number of years, they sell posters that show a Bostonians view of the world and other than NYC and the Golden Gate bridge, there is nothing else they recognize.
It's called having pride. Like the motto, "the heart of it all". Being from Ohio, I love that saying but others could view that the same way you might be of Texas.
Look, my point is that you can question whether or not Texas is a good place to live without being a complete ass like Husker. That is who he is. Whether or not Texas is for you is up to you and you alone.
I have lived in both Austin and the Fort Worth area now for almost 15 years and it is a great place to live. I think you can tell by others more civil in this thread that they like it as well.
