Former Rice AD appears to be the new hire AD at Texas. Austin now has a former Rice hire as football HC, Herman, baseball HC, Pierce, and AD, Del Conte!

Rice is laughable. They are a million miles to be P5 ready. I see more potentials for UTSA, UTEP, West Texas A&M, Tarleton State and some others be more aggressive for their athletics departments than Rice.

Bayou bucket 2025, Rice (west PAC16) v. UH (east by 3 miles $EC) in the annual cross conference battle for Harris County supremecy? C2 like jfk understands that a rising tide lifts all boats!

Rice is a great school. More Ivy League than P5. They are not going to spend the money necessary to compete with the bigger named schools. They are not going to any of the above mentioned conferences no matter how many times people keep saying it on this board.

Resources are there, and the footprint opens Texas to the B10, PAC12 or ACC. A Rice add to the SEC enhances the Texas footprint for the SEC and adds a second private for the conference.

Rice is certainly the top academic university in Texas and one of the best in America, but in football, not so much.

Rice won 1 game this season, and moving to a Power conference is all about football. Rice is the smallest FBS program, and because of that small exclusive fan base, they have serious issues with attendance. The power conferences are all about money. Rice monetary value on the field isn't close to what those Power conferences are looking for. The only chance Rice will ever have of getting a promotion to a Power conference is if a very wealthy, or a group of very wealthy supporters, open their wallets and buy them into a better situation.

RE: Rice to SEC, B10, PAC12, ACC
Agree with C2

Rice could be one of the most desireable properties in all of college sports

They just have to give a damn and put some of those billions into athletics. And honestly, not even FB. If Rice decided to make itself into the Duke of the Central US, there is nobody else more primed by location. They would be on everyone's shortlist because their academic reputation is that good

agreed - they would be THE ideal package with UT, OU and KU for the B1G if they ever decided to really invest more into sports outside of baseball.
