Oklahoma Sooner Fan
Boomer, I owe you an apology for my response to your comment a few days back. I opened my previous response to you with "UT makes that money in spite of playing in the Big 12, not because of it." and the more I think about it that is 100% wrong thinking and you were right.
I threw that out because I am tired of hearing Big 12 fans assume there is some magic in conference that will keep UT here forever, but in making that statement I am guilty of the same kind of non-thinking reflexive response.
I am a big hater of conventional wisdom as it is lazy inbred thinking and is almost always wrong. I was guilty of all of that with my statement.
I hope you'll check out my article on the longhorns and see the impact of your quite insightful point.
Thank you for opening my eyes to a different perspective on that. Thank you for making me a better writer.
