Baylor should oppose Houston's Big XII bid. Kendall Kant, Our Daily Bears.
Houston is an attractive expansion target for a number of reasons. Those reasons make Houston a huge threat to Baylor, if they join the Big 12. Baylor should not elevate a strong program in Texas, or make it less likely the Bears find a home in the next round of realignment.
If Baylor's argument against boils down to "Houston is a good program on the rise and that's bad for Baylor", then given Baylor's recent issues I believe this strengthens, rather than weakens Houston's position.
Before the latest round of endorsements from UT-Austin, I thought UH to the Big XII was always a pipe dream and I thought that Houston's talking to the Pac-12 made more sense.
The right people are seemingly in support of them and the wrong people are against them.
Baylor's days as a top-tier program are, in my mind, coming to an end. UH should worry about wooing OU and the northern schools. Let Baylor wither on their angry vine.
