Report: Baylor to join Baylor Conference

After several days of uncertainty, it appears Baylor will have a home should the Big 12 Conference fall apart. According to sources close to the program, the Bears will join the Baylor Conference — currently named the Baylor University Intramural Athletics Department. "Nothing has been decided," Baylor athletics director Ian McCaw. "We would love to stay in the Big 12. Or go to the Pac-10. Or SEC. Or really any BCS conference that would have us. However, I think we would be very competitive in the Baylor Conference." Baylor alums and boosters are confident the Bears would do well in basketball in the Baylor Conference, but fear the Bears would struggle in kickball, frisbee golf and football.
