Rice should invest their money in basketball like Duke. Then just make a nice football stadium and be the Duke/Stanford of Texas in football

Rice to PAC-12 in Olympic sports. Balanced by also adding non-FBS UCSD.

Rice and UCSD both get a PAC network share and NCAA tournament payout. Rice also gets a share of the CFP and bowl payout. 6 PAC games (3H/3A) per year. UCSD had to move to FCS by 2025.

Deal goes through 2025. In 2025 (end of BigXII contract) see what UT is up to and offer full membership but settle for 6 year independent deal (through 2031 LHN contract).

Re-evaluate at that time. If joins, either in 2025 or 2031, Rice and a UCSD come as full members. UT gets to bring 1 friend.

2031 Border Division: UCSD, AS, ASU, UU, CU, Rice, UT, (TTU, UNM, or OU).

If Rice properly invests... ...it means that UH is on thin ice. They have proper Power Five appeal in terms of academics.

Rice has little to do with UH. Rice would be another Vandy or Northwestern.
