    Re: Lawmakers want Houston in the Big 12

    We should give the 10 team format a try.

    Why don't they make an all Texas conference and they can all just live in their world and not bother everyone else.

    Re: Lawmakers want Houston in the Big 12

    I'm totally against it. Also, that would give more motivation to put OU and OSU in the north group should be go to 12 teams.

    With that said, lets give the 10 teams a couple years and see how things go.

    Well if the Texas state government would supplement $40M per year, we could take a closer look at it.

    Cincinnati and Louisville make way more sense than Houston.

    They sure do, any school outside the state of Texas makes more sense.

    Re: Lawmakers want Houston in the Big 12

    Boo Texas schools, boo!!!

    I'm all forgetting back to 12 if we can do it without a hit to the pocketbook, but I am totally against adding more Texas schools to the mix.

    Re: Lawmakers want Houston in the Big 12

    I'm not too worried about this, you only have 4 teams in Texas, 3 of which the Texas State government have any control over as far as voting. I would assume that the north schools would vote against it, the Oklahoma schools would probably vote against it. I think we are safe.

    I'm def all for this. I wouldn't mind once we get our money to see cincy, louisville, memphis, etc type of school come in that we could compete with more historically in football than an OU, Texas, Tech.

    Re: Lawmakers want Houston in the Big 12

    They bring no money. The best chance to move to 12 teams would be Arkansas and Notre Dame. In my opinion.


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