Was it because of academics and religion? Rice would have been a better choice for academics because they are one of the top 15 schools in the country and they are actually good in something (baseball).
Baylor must have landed the biggest shocker in the recruiting season when they signed David Gettis from Dorsey High in L.A. I have no idea how Baylor went into the ghetto and recruited one of the top ten WRs in the country.
Its because the then Governer of Texas, Anne Richards, was a Baylor Alumn. She forced it, otherwise she would screw with Texas A&M and Texas's funding formulas.
