Furthermore, did ISU, KSU, KU, Mizzou, and Baylor enjoy it when that same group, substitute A&M for Tx Tech, enjoy it when you flirted with the PAC-12 again this year? I'm going to say the "held hostage" claim is fair.
I'm going to pick up the tu handle. You guys want a different set of rules, see my points on high school and conference games on the lhn.
@JB TexasEx Did you guys hold the rest of the conference hostage by gallivanting with the PAC-12 or not?
You only have one vote but you do receive a disproportionate amount of revenues and you play by a different set of rules with the Longhorn Network ("We won't broadcast high school games or Big 12 games)!. You only have one vote but the other schools aren't equals. No other conference publicly refers to schools as "anchor schools".

@JohnVol My comprehension hasn't failed me. You missed my point in my original post and you've been trying to obscure that point ever since.
In our first soiree you boast of owning season tickets at TBA when it opened. I was under the age of one when it opened.
@JohnVol You can't keep up. Too old I guess.
@JohnVol When Spurrier started in the SEC we had 10 teams and you played seven conference games. Then we jumped to 12 teams and eight conference games. Never in Spurrier's 20 year SEC tenure has the SEC had a true round robin format like Spurrier wishes we did.
Once again, my original point was wondering why Spurrier waited 20 years to complain about the "unfair" schedule.
Please, try and keep up.
I'm sorry JohnVol, I asserted that The Ole Ball Coach never brought this up during his tenure with Florida and I wondered why he was doing so now.
Then you put words in my mouth.
Then I reasserted by assertion.
Then you snapped.
Then I was still right.

@JohnVol OK, I live in Campbell County and my kids go to Halls, interesting. Did they get a hardship in court to attend Knox County Schools due to my Agriculture degree from MTSU that only opened the door for hourly wage jobs? (If you're wondering if you're a bully, the answer is yes. BTW, you're bad at it.)
"As someone who has had season tickets in Section 129, Row 15, Seats 1,2 since the Vols moved to TBA, I challenge you to come see me. I promise your hourly wage ass didn't come to games before the Bruce era."
You're exactly right. My parents didn't have the money to go to Tennessee events when I was a kid. I was zoned for a bad school in Chattanooga so they "wasted" their money by sending us kids to a private school. Bruce Pearl was hired my freshman year, so yes, I didn't go to games before Bruce. I did grow up listening to the Vols during the Houston-O'Neill-Green-Peterson era. Times were tough, games were rarely on TV but John Ward always called them on the radio.
I don't have season tickets and I never will more than likely. I go to as many games as possible but now that my wife and I have a baby, going to games will be cut off sharply.
"As of this week, UT has sold about 61,500 football season tickets.
The problem: That figure is about 11,000 short of the 72,500 season tickets that are available and more than 2,000 behind sales at this point last year."
There are currently only 72k season tickets and you're 10k off in your assertion.
Hart caught Trembley? Or the police did? Here is your bias shining through.
60K @ Georgia State? Not gonna happen.
I'm not going to exchange ad hominems. You're the typical Tennessee fan that thinks it is our birthright to win a national championship every season. You are the group that ran Fulmer out on a rail.
