Transcript A peace, poverty, elections, earthquakes, voices, ories, floods, freedom, deception deception, disaster Four Southwest Conference schools have been asked to leave the SWC and President Pickering said he was "shocked" that Houston was not invited to become a member of the Big Eight. UT, Texas A&M, Baylor and Texas Tech were all invited to join the Big Eight beginning with the 1996-9 7 season. The four remaining teams, UH, Southern Methodist, Texas Christian University and Rice have been told they were not invited to join. Those who were invited had until Feb. 25, 1994 to respond. On Sept. 23, 1994, the University of Houston officially announced it would join a new conference home. This announcement came after more than seven months of pondering where the university was headed after the breakup. Conference USA was the name given to Houston's new 12-member league that begins play in Fall 1995, with UH joining it in 1996- 97. Houston will be affiliated with the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, Marquette University, the University of Memphis, Saint Louis University, the University of Louisville, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the University of Southern Mississippi, the University of South Florida and Tulane University. Memphis President Lane Rawlins is the chairman of the C-USA Board of Directors. He said in order for the conference to succeed with its plans formulated over the last nine months, it was impor tant that the league set forth some attainable objectives. Topping the list was "building a conference that would capitalize on the current strength in the sport of basketball and providing opportunities to be even better," Rawlins said. The league has also put together basketball and football television packages that account for more than $30 million in revenues over the next six years. The C-USA reached a six-year agreement with Creative Sports in association with ESPN in March for basketball. The $13 million deal guarantees the conference a weekly spot on ESPN's Thursday night basketball and a telecast of both C-USA basketball tournament champion games. ESPN2 has also added C-USA telecasts to its Sunday night broadcasts, which includes select other women's events. Football agreed on a five-year package with Liberty Sports, which guarantees the conference a Saturday appearance opposite teams in the Big- 12 and Pacific-10 conferences as part of a college football weekly tripleheader. "Conference USA is by far the best best of option for the university," said UH Athletic Director Bill Carr. "I have no second thoughts about other things that we may have been able to do (with finding another conference)." -Jason Paul Ramirez The Daily Cougar The Classroom 203
