I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this story in this morning's Star-Telegram:
With Baylor frantic, congressman urges legislature to hold hearings
Alright, Baylor. I understand the desperation, and I understand that you've got to do what you can to keep yourself on the UT payroll. But playing the sympathy card? YOU'VE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME!!!!
When the SWC broke up, Baylor was perfectly willing to put TCU, SMU, Rice and Houston through the "armageddon" that they say this would be for them. I haven't read the Book of Revelations much since that one night when I was 9 and stayed up reading the whole thing and didn't sleep for about two weeks, but I guess there is something about winning a bowl game in there, because all four of the SWC "left-behinds" have been able to accomplish that feat since then, unlike the Bears.
If Baylor can somehow keep themselves on the receiving end of big checks when UT and OU go to BCS bowls, then more power to them. But if you get left in the dust by the state schools, then boo-fucking-hoo. You more than deserve it.
