It's certainly better than it used to be.

I don't think Houston ever travelled much. But they do generate more local interest for the Texas schools than a lot of the alternatives.

There's no place to hide. If all you care about is winning a conference title then best join the Sun Belt or C-USA.

Exactly & it's not just about how much money you spend but spending the money you have wisely. UNC has IMO not maximized it's resources to full potential university wide period.

You are joking....right?

9. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
> Total federal funds: $599.2 million
> Annual R&D expenditure: $966.8 million
> 2015 enrollment: 29,084
> 2016 endowment: $2.9 billion

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill received $599.2 million in federal grant money in 2015, the fifth most of any public university. Like most large research institutions, UNC allocated most of its R&D funds toward research in life sciences such as medicine and biology. Most of this funding came from the Department of Health and Human Services. However, the school also dedicates outsized portions of its R&D budget toward research in psychology and the social sciences. An estimated 4.8% of UNC’s total R&D spending goes to psychology research, compared to the 1.7% average for all universities. UNC also dedicates 9.2% of its total R&D spending to research in the social sciences, nearly three times the 3.4% average.

And don't forget how efficient your African American studies department was. Thousands of hours of credit over several decades without even having to hold a class!

In the SWC.

Times have changed. UH brought big contingencies to most of their bowls in Texas and to UTSA and Texas State. They'd bring fans to at least half of the current Big 12 teams.
