What If The Big XII Kicked Out Baylor...That Would Be Awesome!!!

How can I say this gently? Baylor is dead weight. Since the joining of the Big Eight and the now defunct SWC Baylor's conference record is a whooping 13 wins, 91 losses. That calculates out to be 12.5 percent winning percentage in the Big 12. Conference road games have been even worse as they have tallied two wins against 50 losses or a 3.8 percent winning percentage in the Big 12.

I am still baffled at why they were invited to join the Big 12 in the first place. They had only moderate success in the old SWC and were at best a middle of the road team.

I've read articles that perhaps there were some political machinations on behalf of the governor at that time which happened to be a Baylor Alum.

Rumor had it that some arm twisting went on to ensure that Texas A&M didn't go to the SEC and that funding might be slashed had the oldest school in Texas not been added to the newly formed conference. I don't know if any of that was true but I know for damn sure that Baylor didn't get in on merit.

Fast forward to 2009 after 13 full seasons of Big 12 Football have passed it's about time to kick Baylor out. Replace them with who?  I don't know maybe Memphis or make a push at Arkansas but the time has come to consider something other than a virtually guaranteed win for the Big 12 South.
