We're just a matter of days from TCU's official entry into the Big 12, and we've reached the last of our weekly features on the Frogs' future conference rivals. This week we focus on our arrogant, stomach acid orange-wearing friends down at the University of Texas at Austin.
During reconstruction, the wealthy commercial real estate moguls in Houston and Dallas needed a place to send their cocky and entitled sons to wear cowboy hats and hold a giant cow on a leash during football games. The Texas legislature listened, and UT opened its doors in the fall of 1883. Today, the descendants of those original Alpha Betas are joined by a hoard of lesbians who don't shave their armpits, asian engineering students and anyone else that finished in the top 10% of the class at their plain vanilla suburban high schools in a student body that numbers over 51,000. UT-Austin ranks 45th on the US News & World Report list of best colleges in America, and together with the 14 other institutions of the UT System shares an endowment of over $19 billion.
Here are a few videos to set the mood for the week:
