Texas Needs Its Own NCAA Conference

How hard is this to figure out?

Texas has enough good quality schools to fill up its own conference. It can keep rivalries and begin to form new ones.

Schools need to get along and come up with a balanced solution to television revenues so that teams don’t have to travel and crisscross the country to find competition.

Baylor is already proving itself on a national stage. It has the reigning Heisman winner, a top 20 men’s football and basketball team, and the top women’s basketball team.

The University of Texas is a proven national power in football and has some Final Four appearances in basketball.

The University of Houston has a former Heisman winner in Andre Ware and great traditions in both sports. Houston once was a national power in basketball in the Phi Slamma Jamma days.

Texas Tech, TCU, and Texas A&M compete annually in college football for top 20 rankings, sometimes jumping up into the top 10 or even top 5. Their basketball prowess goes up and down year to year, but A&M has shown consistency in recent years and have threatened for a Final Four berth.

Rice and SMU are schools that have past success on a national level. SMU in its heyday with Eric Dickerson was a football power, and has improved recently under June Jones, and Rice is a perennial baseball power.

This is a total of 8 schools so far.

UTEP would make it 9. It carries with it one of college sports’ greatest stories when it won a national basketball championship with the first all-black starting five in 1966. Glory Road was a Hollywood movie made about that team.

If necessary, Texas can recruit out of state and invite OU and OSU to join them and form a 10, 11, 12-pack of schools/teams. Both bring a lot to the table with nationally recognized reputations in both power sports, football and basketball.

Texas State University and UTSA are new to Division I, and it’s just a matter of time before they become more relevant. They’ve been accepted to the WAC conference, but their futures can be Texas-grounded with the right moves.

Texas needs to get smart and pull their own together to make a more impressive local conference and provide showdowns with more meaning to fans, alumni and students.

Amid the most successful applications of anaerobic treatment for the oxidation of toxic pollutants is the case of the treatment of effluent in the plastic industry containing high concentrations of terephthalate. Septic system owners who have utilized Pro – Biotic Scrubber in their septic tank and leach fields or drain fields have found that the sludge and material that traditionally can back-up a system and cause it to fail is actually eliminated, making the system run more efficiently and prevent long-term failures and maintenance costs. The biological infiltration uses two types of bacteria: the bacteria that oxidise ammonia to nitrite (nitrosomonas) and the bacteria that oxidise nitrite to nitrate (nitrobacter).
