RE: Rice to SEC, B10, PAC12, ACC
I understand it is Rice that retains the name and the dormant charter of the old Southwest Conference. If the B12 has more defections in a few years, revive the Southwest Conference with Rice being a part of it.

Alot of people are predicting (especially on the CUSA board) that the next AAC deal with collapse to CUSA levels in the next deal. In that kind of AAC worst case scenario I could see Houston and SMU grabbing Rice and creating a Texas based regional G5 that revives the SWC name. The base would be something like Houston, Rice, SMU, UTSA, Texas St, LaTech, Memphis, and ArkySt. Then, depending on how large you want to be, you fill in the edges with teams like Tulsa, S Miss, Tulane, ULL, Memphis, Tulane, and maybe Cincy.

Rice to any of those leagues is total nonsense... Their present conference (cusa) is ideal for them, end of story.

The day Houston lower itself to a crappy gross of a conference would be the day I stopped caring for UH.

RE: Rice to SEC, B10, PAC12, ACC
Houston might not be there for the new SWC as they could be in the Big 12 by then,
The new SWC should have Missouri State as part of the group.

UTEP
UTSA
Rice
North Texas
Texas State
SMU
Tulsa
Missouri State
Arkansas State
La. Tech
La.-Lafayette
Lamar
UTA
Wichita State
I think Southern Miss. wants to be with UAB.

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.

Texas footprint without stepping on any established program’s toes!

To be fair, I said that’s a worst case scenario.

Rice to P4
Baylor has more alumni in Houston than Rice does by around 50% so Rice's claim to add much impact to the tv market appeal for any of these leagues is questionable. The entire living alumni base can fit inside their 70,000 seat stadium when the tarps are taken down.

This is coming from someone who is a big fan of Rice when they aren't playing my Bears.

I think the Mountain West is their ideal conference. Associating with flagships (UNM, Nevada, Wyoming, Hawaii) and second tier schools of their respective state (CSU, SDSU, Fresno) plus an academy is better than the third tier the American created (ECU to Charlotte, UC to Miami, Kent, etc., Memphis to MTSU, USF/UCF to FAU/FIU and so on).
