    hey scott, I am of course writing the Big 12 angles and in doing so I had to consider the fall of the SWC. I have long maintained that NFL killzones made teh SWC a deadman walking and I just came accross two articles from the time that really speak to that and are great insightful --- and quoteable -- reads that I thought I'd pass on.

    http://books.google.com/books?id=IiwEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA60&lpg=PA60&dq=southwest+conference+average+attendance+by+year&source=bl&ots=NBnHSDmy3u&sig=iWFfTmQLzk1FZ40y74041Q3vEHA&hl=en&ei=oRRcTv_KDq-KsAKiuPkM&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CFkQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=southwest%20conference%20average%20attendance%20by%20year&f=false

    page 58 onward. "the decline of the SWC"


    http://books.google.com/books?id=WC4EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA5&lpg=PA5&dq=southwest+conference+average+attendance+by+year&source=bl&ots=HfsAZOEbfh&sig=zl86uzPvasRYM58CsfhK3z0_tKE&hl=en&ei=oRRcTv_KDq-KsAKiuPkM&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=8&ved=0CFAQ6AEwBw#v=onepage&q=southwest%20conference%20average%20attendance%20by%20year&f=false

    page 5 onward - "empty seats"

    also this one

    The three do a heck of a job in explaining what happened to the SWC, why UT does what they do and how they think, and why getting back in bed with TCU may not happen.

    Hope things are good for you.
