    Arizona ([​IMG]i/ɛrɪˈzoʊnə/; /ærɪˈzoʊnə/) (Navajo: Hoozdo Hahoodzo [xòːztò xɑ̀xòːtsò]; O'odham: Alĭ ṣonak [ˡaɺi ˡʃonak]) is a state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western United States and of the Mountain West states. It is the sixth largestand the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona is one of the Four Corners states. It has borders with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California, and Mexico, and one point in common with the southwestern corner of Colorado. Arizona's border with Mexico is 389 miles (626 km) long, on the northern border of the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California.

    Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912. Historically part of the territory of Alta Californiain New Spain, it became part of independent Mexico in 1821. After being defeated in the Mexican–American War, Mexico ceded much of this territory to the United States in 1848. The southernmost portion of the state was acquired in 1853 through the Gadsden Purchase.

    Southern Arizona is known for its desertclimate, with very hot summers and mild winters. Northern Arizona features forests of pine, Douglas fir, and spruce trees; the Colorado Plateau; some mountain ranges (such as the San Francisco Mountains); as well as large, deep canyons, with much more moderate summer temperatures and significant winter snowfalls. There are ski resorts in the areas of Flagstaff, Alpine, and Tucson. In addition to the Grand Canyon National Park, there are several national forests, national parks, and national monuments.

    About one-quarter of the state[7] is made up of Indian reservations that serve as the home of 27 federally recognized Native American tribes, including the Navajo Nation, the largest in the state and the United States, with more than 300,000 citizens. Although federal law gave all Native Americans the right to vote in 1924, Arizona excluded those living on reservations from voting until its state Supreme Court ruled in 1948 in favor of Native American plaintiffs.[8][9]

    Iowa State president Steven Leath on the University of Houston:

    "They certainly have a lot of factors we are interested in. I feel a lot of the (Big 12) presidents feel the league is Texas-heavy already, which helps with the Texas schools, but it’s a little problematic for the rest of us to go from the very northern part of the league, like us, to the very southern part of the league.

    "All I can say on that is they will get a fair shake. We will take a good serious look at it if they continue to express interest."

    Fertitta: Here is my offer. There will be no UT-Houston... ever. There will be no reduced payments in the beginning of Big 12 membership. There will be no games in NRG. In fact, we will need 12 million dollars to exit the AAC, which I would appreciate if IT paid for.

    Bowlsby: Home games against Texas and Oklahoma will be played in NRG. Houston's conference distributions will start at 10 million dollars and increase by 2 million dollars every year until equal to other conference members. UT-Houston breaks ground in 6 months. And pay your own damn way out of the AAC.

    Fertitta: *whispers* Holy shit.

    So are the Texas schools secretly getting out of state schools to torpedo UH so they can say they tried? I don't think any good would come to them by giving Herman the chance to elevate them even more and maybe not come to UT or wherever next year.

    The speculation is we are publicly giving them support so they will drop opposition to our new satellite research campus in Houston. There are some very influential political dollars on the U of H side. I don't really understand why Tech, TCU, Baylor, OU, and OSU would want Houston in the conference making it tougher to recruit the area.

    UH football coach: Hey, 4 star recruit, commit to UH and you can play UT, OU, TCU, etc. on ABC/FOX/ESPN

    Is it really that difficult to understand how much their recruiting pitch improves with them in the B12?

    Yes, I understand your argument, even through the condescension. My point is, that impacts maybe, at most 2-3 croots per class, whereas the Techs, OSUs, Baylors, and TCUs of the world can now sell the 150 or so d1 prospects that come out of the greater Houston area every year on the idea of playing a game in their hometown.

    The argument for those schools would be not against going to UH, it would be against going to Arizona, Arizona State, Mizzou, Nebraska, or the 40+ other second tier p5 schools who recruit Texas. Why go there when you can stay in the Big 12 and see mom a couple of times during college?

    Currently that argument can't be made. UH in the conference would allow that, and them getting the p5 recruiting bump, however great it may be, doesn't outweigh that advantage to the other programs in the conference.

    In my opinion.

    The exposure could potentially be beneficial. I think that's a positive that greatly outweighs big bad scary Houston coming in and stealing every recruit in the state of Texas because they're now in a power 5 conference.
