Competitive Standpoint: * From a competitive standpoint, we can and should point out that we would be the 2nd most successful program all-time in the Pac 10 (from a wins and % standpoint) if admitted. * Still top 20 all-time in wins and winning % (despite being down -- let them know we've been down before and always come back) * Have a national champion, a Hesiman winner, multiple Thorpe winners, Lombardi winners, etc. Academics: * Ranked in top 3 in Big 12 by US News * Rated #14 University in the world by _______ (can't remember name of ranking system, someone help me out) * AAU member Miscellaneous * Boulder is one of the great college towns in America. (Especially compared to Waco) * Great cultural fit with Pac 10 schools * You bow down to Texas, you better get the vaseline ready. Already killed SWC, soon to kill Big 12. Texas looks out for itself only as evidenced by fact that they may be demanding Baylor.
