    Houston or SMU

    Which one would you want. There is also BYU out there that could bring some t.v.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I'd take BYU if we could get them over the other two.

    Houston. I think there could be a lot of potential there once theyre elevated to a BCS league.

    Trio of BYU\Houston\Louisville to get back to 12 after A&M Bails

    SMU brings less than nothing.

    SMU. Dallas is a much nicer city than Houston. They also have a much better stadium.





    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Houston or SMU

    If it has to be between those two then SMU. It is a closer, nicer destination. Economically, I think you can argue for Houston, but just based on preference I would say SMU.

    You either stay at 9 or go get BYU, Colorado St., and maybe Louisville. (Or Boise)

    Adding texas lowere tier schools does nothing for the conference.

    Re: Houston or SMU

    I like the idea of going to Dallas for a game. We could pull a lot of recruits with Houston or SMU coming. We recruit the dallas area pretty well. Probably much better if we can give them a game down there. BYU adds more to the league. It won't help our football recruiting any better though.

    Big 12 should make the push for Arkansas, LSU, and Miss State.

    Re: Houston or SMU

    If we added SMU it would be interesting to see which school developed more of a following: SMU or TCU.
