a lot of that was the SEC hype machine. With Strong at UT things will shift back that way in a hurry. If it doesn't then yeah move TAM to that level. The are in a honeymoon period, much like uk last year. it's new and fresh, TAM to SEC. They were sexy for a moment, but they are about to take a step back on the field, recruiting will follow. It is typical for TAM, make a good jump forward, then they move back.
