I think the conference branches away from Texas for expansion. The market there is well covered. BYU would jump at the opportunity, but the Big XII would have to agree not to play any of their games Sunday. I could see som...

I too agree that the football program should be self sufficient in order to continue, but as an aside, why is Paul Bryant Jr. on the BOT. More specifically, what has he done to warrant that position, other than being the son of a football coach?
