Your counter points are off by miles. Here's why: 1. By "Texas Recruits > Alabama Recruits" - I'm not talking about University of Texas Recruiting vs University of Alabama recruiting. I'm talking about Texas High School football vs Alabama High School football.... and it's not even close. The state of Texas is only rivaled by Florida in terms of football prospects out of high school. 2. By "University of Texas > Alabama" I'm meaning in general. Not just football, but on the whole. Sports as a whole, the school as a whole. Again, not very close. 3. You just proved my point by saying the SEC has 9 teams top 25 to Big 12's 7.... so which would be the easier challenge? The Big 12... Not that rankings mean anything. ESPECIALLY with the always-over-ranked SEC. I think you just misunderstood what I was saying on most those, though.
