Support for BaylorCould the Texas Legislature get involved in conference realignment? Orangebloods.com, which first reported the possibility of six Big 12 teams joining the Pac-10, reported Saturday that state legislators are prepared to demand Baylor, not Colorado, be one of the six schools to make the move. "If you're going to have an exported commodity involved in this, do you think we're going to allow a school from outside the state of Texas to replace one of our schools in the Big 12 South? I don't think so. We're already at work on this,” an unidentified member of the Texas Legislature told the website. The source told the website a block of 15 legislators will work to make sure Baylor is invited to the Pac-10. "If the Pac-10 wants Texas, and we know they do, they may have to take all of our Texas schools,” the source told the website.
