We have been excluded from P5 status because we are too much of a threat to others already in that status. Yes, I am talking mainly about the Great Satan over in Austin, but there are others too; and most of them are right in our own state of Texas! They all know that if they let us compete on a level playing field, we will clean their plow.
But, one of these days, we are going to be picked up by someone else - and it won't be a place that will tolerate the arrogance of those whorns. They will eventually be forced into independent status, and I hope they find it difficult to fill out their schedule; THAT - would be poetic justice, in my opinion!
And, when that day comes, UH will soar to heights never even dreamed of before! Some of us might have to watch from an even higher perch, but that will be OK too; we will have the best seat in the house!
