    And the ex Baylor AD was recently hired by Liberty U for the same position. JF Jr (who IMO is nuttier than a fruitcake) extolled the man's virtues when he was hired.

    Kill football in Texas? Well Bless my pea pickin' heart! That's like trying to take the guns away at an NRA convention. You'll be messing with some really angry people.

    Come to think of it, though, they did kill SMU.

    I guess Ouwachita Baptist better watch out!

      Lest we forget- many of the people we are talking about here seem to embrace alternative facts. And going back to the day where, well, I'm not sure where we go back to, yet.

      SMU was different- it was about money. This is about assaulting kids (pedo state) and women (Baylor). That's clearly ok. Cheating big people out of money isn't.

        And the Big 12 will punish Baylor by temporarily withholding TV money. After a third-party investigation, Baylor will get its money back.

          The NCAA is so mad at Baylor right now they're going to put Abilene Christian on three-years probation!

            I thought the NCAA was run by academics, not, say Repub... nevermind.

            Or is it when money is involved ...

                  Liberty's going FBS in 2019. Will be an independent because no conference will take them and they got an exemption from the NCAA (likely to avoid a lawsuit)

                      A few years ago, the NCAA put a stop on teams jumping from FCS to FBS without having been invited to a FBS conference. Liberty's probably been ready to move up, but neither the SunBelt or Conference USA wanted to invite them. They had to prove they were willing to lose money hand over fist in football to go indy , I guess.

                        If they're competitive and a decent draw on the road, I could see the Sunbelt giving them an invite.

                            That self-imposed one year bowl ban makes it all good.

                              Baylor moves to dismiss lawsuit about the 52 rapes on campus, claiming, I **** you not, that they don't "have to protect students from harm caused by other students."
