I loath the University of Texas.
That said, I am also NOT a sports fan of any type. At one time I planned retail stores in an 11 state area. Never was sucked into a Football or athletic dispute. Pretty dumb business move to do so, have seen it happen.
My wife & I graduated from West Texas State. They are now a part of the Texas A&M system. My father was an Aggie.
My daughter is an OU grad. Her husband graduated from Texas Tech & Harvard Law School.
So we are a mixed institution family.
I graduated from OU long ago. My kids graduated from KU and everybody is in Texas now. One grandson is going to to OSU and the other one probably will go to Lubbock. Most of my neighbors are Aggies. If there are any teasips they don’t advertise it.
Going to the Texas State Fair has been on my bucket list for a long time so got together with some friends and went. Didn’t realize the weekend we had picked was the UT/OU game or that the fairgrounds was part of the Cotton Bowl. Interesting time. Want to go back but will pick another weekend next time.
