It use to be that we couldn't beat them by hook nor crook, and have enjoyed our recent success, so I'll just keep quiet........................
I view this the exact opposite of you...
UT used to beat their chest and make fun of us "chickens"... now karma has come back with a vengence.. I do not see a "sleeping giant", as Vandy even has a better program than them.. they used to rely on nabbing OOS talent, and now that talent is staying home (aka USC etc)... If they were in a talent rich state I would agree (TAMU comes to mind), but they have to play major catch up to even get to 4th place in the East... I love how karma has bit them hard
