TCU is a church base school and will never be included in the SEC. Houston is probably a better choice

Default Sec

TCU is a Church base school and should be lumped with Baylor

Uhh.. Both schools have proven once again to be the best teams in the Big 12.. Just because the schools have religious affiliations doesn't mean we can't play some mean football.

If anything, I would think the SEC would be the MAIN conference to bring in a religious based school. They're not taking U of H over either of those schools, especially since they already have A&M, not too far away.

Hmmm? Did you miss OU winning its dominating 9th Big XII title?

No mistaking, Texas Christian and Baylor are very good, but OU owns this league.

Either Texas Christian or Baylor would be incredibly fortunate to get an SEC invite. You will have to maintain great success and also double your fanbase for the money to be right.

That was also their first title since 2010.

"Owning" is a bit strong of a word when you just went 4 years in a row not owning much of anything but a .500 bowl record during that time.

Who said I was just looking at the last few years? I was looking over the whole history of the Big XII. I think "owning" or "dominating" are very fitting words when applied to OU's success and reign in the Big XII. OU has nine conference titles. The next closest team (or teams) sit around two conference championships. That's a big gap that won't be closed any time soon....and when (if) it does, OU will probably already be in the PAC12South or the SECWest.

With the exception of possibly Alabama and maybe Ohio St., has any other team in college football had that kind of success in their conference over the last couple of decades? Probably not.

But if you want to focus on the last few years that's fine too. OU still has the biggest win by far of any Big XII team in the last several years by defeating Bammer in the 2013 Sugar Bowl. Also, the fact that OU was the first team to make the playoff demonstrates that the program is still a force to be reckoned with.....at least in the Big XII. Like it or not, Baylor nor Texas Christian are the Big XII's flagship program. That spot is already taken up by OU. Texas Christian and Baylor are certainly competitive though.
