    You realize that the only reason that baylor is in the big 12 is that when the big 12 was formed, the governor of texas was a baylor alum

    I think it was going to be TCU, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    I believe the argument was for either Texas Christian or Rice, but since both schools were much smaller back then, the whole "Governor is a Baylor alum" thing went over pretty smoothly. If I remember correctly, Texas and TAMU both decided to join, but Texas Tech said they would only join if Baylor was allowed in, too. Since Tech was good at the time, the Big 8 and Texas really wanted Tech in the conference. That further smoothed out the acceptance of Baylor.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I guess I don't know what difference the governor of Texas makes in forming an athletic conference.

    huge rumor that continues to stay around. it might have played a small part (tech as well), but even in football we were clearly the best choice at the time.
