The Big 8 wanted A&M and Texas. They really had no intensions of taking anyone else. These two teams only agreed to leave if a couple of other teams could come. They wanted it to be Tech and UH. Ann Richards, a Baylor alumn, pressured them to add Baylor instead of UH. Isn't it ironic that a Democrat killed UH football, Mike? It was politics, but it wasn't the "good ole boy" system; it was more like the "good ole girl" system.
