I was having a conversation with a gentleman the other day. This person has ties to UH and serves on various boards. We started to talk about the Big12 and he stated that Texas would no how have UH in the conference. He doesn’t know why and it really doesn’t matter. They just have no interest in UH being in the same conference. So anyone that thinks other wise I think they are just living in a dream world. Now onto something he said that really caught me off guard. He said he was speaking to some of the leadership at UH and wondered why they keep referring to the BIG in terms of conferences changes for our beloved Coogs. Not just once has this been mentioned but it has been a narrative for a year or more on Cullen Blvd. That was exciting to hear but how can we overcome the AAU hurdle I asked… He said he doesn’t know but just that is what he keeps hearing. I know that this has been mentioned in the past but find it interesting that leadership at UH has been saying this and I wonder why? Have they been meeting with Big officials? Is there mutual interest or is it just looking elsewhere because the Big12 door has been closed. Either way I do hope we land in a P5. It is vital to our future.
