Doesn't Texas Tech have to be included with any movement by Texas?

Similar thoughts were had with regard to Texas A&M and Texas at one point.

I could see Texas go Independent like ND because of all the money they make. 

"Independent" meaning that they are in a conference for everything but football, and in football they play 5 teams from that same conference per year?

Who's to say his parents didn't actually buy him that, but you never know.

His parents say they bought the car. (see tweets I posed above from Zeke's mother.)

Without looking up the seating allocations, I can tell you for a fact that the best seats are going to big money. Otherwise, what are we even talking about?

Well, I guess it depends on personal preference, but, for example, I consider the lower rows of C-deck, mid-field to be some of the best seats in Ohio Stadium. Those seats, on the west side of the stadium are allocated for Faculty/Staff--as are all the sideline seats in C-deck on the west side of the stadium (odd numbered sections from 11C-29C).  Faculty/Staff also have part of 22A (on the 40/45 yard line on the east side of the stadium allocated to them.

In addition, mid-field AA-deck seats are good seats and are, rightfully, allocated to Players'/Coaches' families/and guests (sections 21AA and 19AA)--and all odd numbered sections from 21AA down to 11AA, along the Ohio State sideline are allocated to Players'/Coaches' families/guests and recruits.

Varsity O Football has some pretty good seats allocated in sections 23A, 17A and 15A, as well as 23A and 25AA--along the Ohio State sideline.

So not all of the best seats are allocated to "big money".

Sure, go ahead and change the policy, but grandfather in the commitments already made.

Without knowing exactly what commitment was made, it is not clear that it is not being honored.  The article does not specify what he was promised.  At this point, it seems to be a lot of speculation, based on not know a lot of details.

You are being sarcastic. Sadly, many are not, tweeting to Zeke and his family about the car.

Now, having said this, I have no problem with them selling their tickets however the market bears. I simply think that it seems they're renewing on an agreement and they're going to turn the Shoe into the Schott. Remember what that place was like before they moved the students down? It was like a morgue, filled with big money down low, IIRC. Rich people typically get frenetic about one thing, making more money. So, the University may get exactly what it wants, but in doing so kill the atmosphere that many here love so much. Indeed, the times they are a changin...

Take a look at the link I provided below to see how seats will be allocated. The students are not moving. They will be at the north and south ends as they are now, and as they have been for many, many years.

Varsity O football, Player's family/guests, recruits, Faculty/Staff, and Club Seats are on the west side.  Visiting fans will be in the north east corner.

Alumni and other season ticket holders will be on the east side.

I guess my hopes for an old school, intimidating Horseshoe this season are already dead in the water.

The new seat allocation policy starts with the 2016 season.  So, your hopes for this season should remain the same.

For all those who are criticizing Gary's mother....

Chris Spielman played high school ball at legendary Massillon Washington, where Paul Brown once prowled the sidelines. His performance as a senior brought him many awards and many offers from colleges around the country. At one point, he was actually considering that School Up North, but his father reportedly told him to choose Ohio State "or don't come home".
