Clay Travis has become the poster child for football fans of programs that don't win. They have clung onto "what conference they play in" as the backing for the shit they talk.
Clay Travis is a Tennessee fan from what I've read.
Instead of worrying about how the Longhorns would fare in the SEC maybe he should be a bit more concerned about how his Vols would fare against the Longhorns.
This is how real programs conduct themselves. Not hanging their hats on the accomplishments of conference affiliates.
