I'm calling bull$#@! on that entire post. Until you can produce at a link that isn't directly from Boise State that confirms those academic standards, you are full of $#@!. I'll get to the rest of those points later even though they are all feeble counter attempts.
Apathy? Man, that $#@! ain't apathy. That is who we are.

This may be the crowning example of Texas myopia...
Other teams not Texas are experiencing success? Hmmmm...must be because Texas has become lazy on the recruiting trail...
Has it occurred to you that there is a great deal of $$$ involved in college football? And that schools want to be a part of the money shower, and are therefore spending more $$$ on football?
UT consistently reels in top 5 classes, and get most guys that they want. Their evaluation and development are average at best, which is what explains the downward trajectory of late for UT, but that is not what is helping OSU, and Stanford, and Mizzou, and Baylor get better.
The most logical conclusion seems to be that other schools want in on the action, and have spent accordingly.
None. Scholarship limits and the growth of TV money from cable created parity. Texas screwed up for a few years, but the impact from that is not nearly broad or deep enough to significantly change the landscape of football.How big of a role did Texas' apathy play in CFB's newfound parity?
