Friends, why are you surprised?
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE HAVE BEEN LEFT TO THE CURB SINCE 1996.
He expresses the same sentiment that ALL of the P5 teams that have access to the greater Houston area. This is, was and always has been about recruiting. Remember the rants that the trolls had on that other website (they probably still do) trying to prove to you that UH is no good and will never amount to anything?
IMO, this entire expansion discussion has to be summed up with one question. Whose P5 best interest is to let us in? We will have different answers. I have three.
small12, our inclusion limits the SEC taking hold in Texas but every member wants us out…catch22 you can say.
SEC, cement FOREVER Texas. Being the third most popular Team in Texas sums it up. In case it happens I believe that uta will either go independent or crawl to the PAC12. Just think of the impact to OU or OSU. Yes, it would be devastating to them.
PAC12, finally play at a decent hour when everyone watches. You include uta and a couple others and it will at least be on par with the BIG10.
ACC, great addition to them but the logistics are against our inclusion. Who is our nearest rival? Yes, you could include uta and a few others but the logistics are still against it.
Switzer only expresses 99% of the feeling that our neighbors have. At least he is honest about it.
