I'm posting this because I think it would be the best option for Texas, given the athletics and academics. I doubt this guy has any particular knowledge, but it is interesting nontheless. The geography would certainly be less than ideal, but I think it would be great to be in a conference with large research oriented state schools and Nebraska. It would certainly hurt the baseball team, although I know the Big Ten has been trying to improve its baseball. Plus, maybe we'll get an easier path to the CWS once the separate brackets for the North start.
