Texas Still Big Dogs

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ After all the congratulations about

rescuing the Big 12 and sweeping promises of big payouts, fans at

Texas and Texas A&M can't help but feel disappointed.

At Texas, the decision to keep the status quo means the

Longhorns are still the big dog in the Big 12, but they already

were. Staying put feels a bit hollow.

Aggies fans have lit up Texas A&M internet message boards and

radio shows, spewing anger that they missed a chance to join the

Southeastern Conference and get out from under the Longhorns'

considerable shadow.
