the 500,000 living A&M alums in Texas aside, who would want obstructionists, crybabies in their conference. Baylor, if it sues, will lose big time and be subject to a countersuit they cannot afford. A&M followed the rules of withdrawal, was assured Big 12 and its minions would not go to court, and has right and the law on its side in that the NEW Big 12 was grossly misrepresented to them last year thanks to UT and ESPN.
Trust me, it will be settled shortly.

Really though. What does Baylor have to lose? There is not going to be any real countersuit.
Baylor is aboslutely screwed if the Big 12 falls apart. They are just starting to make some noise in basketball and football and now they will be left all alone again.
While it would be baseless, I do not understand why it such a bad move for them to sue. Trying to save their collective butts.
On the other hand, I don't really care for expansion. I think 12 represents a very good number for football conferences. Anything over that means you get to play some opponents once every 5 or 6 years OR you have to go to a nine game conference schedule. I realize it's the way of the world. I just don't really see why it is necessary. The beauty of the SEC is you can just about drive anywhere (althought FayatteNam is pretty far out there). Some of these geographical expansions don't seem to make a great deal of sense. These super conferences of 16+ would dillute the pool too much, IMO. While 16+ team conferences might work for basketball, I do not think they work well in football.
I have always wanted to go to Kyle Field though, so that would be a plus.
