Longhorns thought others were trying to cheat when they weren't... because cheatin'
is their go to move.
As a Texas Aggie I have no love lost for the TU Longhorns but I think you need to get your shyt together before making these claims Butch. UT has one of the cleanest programs in the NCAA in ALL sports. As for larger schools beating up on smaller schools you obviously know little or nothing about the "why" of those contests either. Put your pencil down, quit your running numbers and get up to speed with the rest of the world. Those little schools jump at the opportunity to play a #9 Texas anywhere, anytime.... that's where they win !!!!!

Cash whores that have turned institutes established for higher learning into cheap farm systems for billionaire owners. With standards so low that as long as a kid can run fast and jump high they get a full ride, even with a single digit wonderlic score which in the old days would be termed mentally retarded (ie Texas qb Vince Young 2002-05 wonderlic score 6) over actual student athletes, not athlete stud-ents.

To say UT is as clean as any NCAA program is faint praise indeed.
'THE' Ohio State makes same claim... admin/alumni are just better at covering up.

Wonderlic score of 10 is considered the minimum to prove literacy.
Any below 10 couldn't graduate a (clean) high school program let alone pass college level classes.
A few more examples of colleges with low standards, if a kid can run fast and jump high.

Florida qb Chris Leak wonderlic 8
Florida State wr Kelvin Benjamin 7
Georgia wr A.J. Green wonderlic 10
LSU cb Morris Claiborne wonderlic 4
LSU cb Patrick Peterson wonderlic 9
Miami rb Frank Gore wonderlic 6
Mississippi State s Ed Prater w-5
North Carolina qb Oscar Davenport 6
Ohio State rb Carlos Hyde wonderlic 9
Ohio State qb Terrelle Pryor wonderlic 7
Pittsburgh cb Darrelle Revis wonderlic 10
Texas qb Vince Young wonderlic 6
West Virginia wr Tavon Austin 7

Just the tip of the iceberg.

Dam Butch the minimum score on the Wonderlic is 10. Looks like you may have some questionable information. But we were talking about programs not individuals. A small college team can play a major school and get paid more money than they themselves can allocate for athletics for the entire year. Those "cash whores" also furnish much needed money to other parts of the university for scholarships and don't even think about football funding the entire womens athletic department which are now mandated .... but I doubt you bothered to google that. Now you give us 12 or 13 individuals you feel are inferior people. Want to check out the hundreds if not thousands over the years that have scored extremely high on the same test or do we ignore them and just call them "exceptions". You're a joke man. Stick with figuring odds.... you suck at that too.

You are so full of :bs: your eyes are brown.

I'll type it for you slowly. :)
Wonderlic score range is 0 - 50.
Can you understand that?

Reading below a 4th grade level (A single digit Wonderlic score) qualifies for full scholarship
at Texas IF you generate income for the University. Certainly fits my definition of an institutional
cash wh-ore.

p.s.
The posted results were from tests given after receiving their university education.
A wonderlic score of 21 indicates an IQ of 100.

So now college football players are supposed to be brain surgeons, college players on that level are playing for one reason, if you cant figure that out then dont bother, stick to soccer, you want to talk about Vince Young, probably played one of the best national championship games ever, and if you want to put down Texas for for having alot of doners, than so be it, guess there big cheaters now. :bs:

Yes, as a cheap farm system for the NFL. The average NFL player career is less than 4 years, at
roughly 3.4 seasons. The NFL drafts 260 players per year.
Ohio State's football team roster alone in 2017 was 106 players.

A friend's son was a walk on with Mn Gophers, scholarship 3rd yr, a team captain senior year,
graduated and signed with Green Bay as undrafted free agent, NFL career... 6 months.
My brother-in-law cousin's son had a similar experience/career, except drafted by Dallas.
The NFL chews 'em up and spits 'em out like nobody's business.

To think that cheating in government run systems (which is what universities are) isn't rampant
is naive. Wherever there is money and people you'll find cheating with the more the merrier.

From ESPN:
LSU Tigers coach Ed Orgeron isn't a fan of the visiting locker room at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Apparently, he just needed to vent.

After Orgeron complained about the lack of air conditioning in the Tigers' locker room for Saturday's 45-38 victory over the Texas Longhorns in Austin, Texas, UT athletics director Chris Del Conte ordered an internal review to get to the bottom of it.

According to a spreadsheet provided to ESPN by the Texas athletics department on Thursday, the air conditioning was indeed working in LSU's locker room. The spreadsheet showed the thermostat was set to 68 degrees, and the temperature in the locker room averaged about 72-73 degrees. Texas also released charts and graphs showing air flow into the locker room.

The temperature peaked at 74.7 degrees when the game ended, according to UT, which is when LSU's players, coaches and other personnel were re-entering the locker room from the field. Texas' locker rooms are equipped with monitoring systems that measure their temperatures in various areas every 15 minutes.

Now, maybe cooler heads will prevail in the latest dispute between the schools.

Orgeron told reporters on Wednesday that LSU brought its own air conditioners and fans to Texas, after someone at Louisiana Tech notified the Tigers about the stuffy conditions. Texas beat the Bulldogs 45-14 at home in the Aug. 31 opener.

"I did talk to somebody on Louisiana's Tech staff, and they felt it was very hot," Orgeron said. "All I did was make sure we had air conditioners and blowers. We put air conditioners and blowers, I don't know about air conditioners but put blowers on the floor [of the locker room]. Saturday, it was fine, it was a little stuffy in there. Whether the air conditioner was on or not, I'm not sure."



LSU LB gives Ehlinger his due: 'Proved me wrong'
Orgeron laughed when asked what LSU would do when Texas visits next year.

"I'm sure we have a plan or two to make them as comfortable as they can possibly be," Orgeron said.

The temperature at kickoff was upward of 95 degrees, and several LSU players had to leave the game due to cramping and other injuries. Texas had a 19-play, 86-yard touchdown drive on its first possession of the second half. Including timeouts for injuries, the Tigers defense was on the field for more than 16 real-time minutes.

Del Conte said earlier this week that it was the "first we've heard of any issues in that area."

"We provide one of the best visitor setups available and are proud of the efforts we put forth in hosting our guests," Del Conte said in a statement. "Our facilities staff did not receive any complaints from either Louisiana Tech or LSU, and we've confirmed that our air conditioning in the visiting locker room is in good working order."

Basically, it was a matter of needing more time and this whole thing is simply a matter of

No they are suppose to be Student athletes... lol

System is such a joke with billionaire owners laughing all the way to the bank siphoning off
taxpayer dollars all along the way with stadiums, farm system ect.

At least be honest about what it is and pay college football players a stipend with funding from the
NFL coffers bloated from taxpayer dollars. MLB teams at least have to pay for their own minor
league farm systems.
