Getting the University of Houston into a Power Five athletic conference is a major objective of UH supporters.
Last week, Governor Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) tweeted the following: “Big 12 expansion is a non-starter unless it includes University of Houston. @UHouston”
An hour later, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick (@DanPatrick) tweeted: " I join with @GregAbbott_TX - any BIG 12 expansion must include @UHouston or NO DEAL!"
Texas Sen. John Whitmire (@whitmire_john) said: “I agree. Thank you @GregAbbott_TX for your leadership on this issue and for supporting @UHouston #GoCoogs”
State Rep. Garnet Coleman (@GFColeman) said: “Big 12 expansion must include @UHouston. So glad to see all the support for UH today. #GoCoogs #HTownTakeover”
I have personally talked to the governor and all of the above specifically about UH getting into the Big 12. I assure you that their support is sincere.
Right now, you and I need to show our appreciation for their position and support what they are doing.
