Hey everyone (first post, by the way). A friend of mine mentioned that utee had won the "lone star showdown" vs. A&M this year. I didn't even know anything about it, but it's a head-to-head contest between the athletic programs of the aggys & horns, which, as we all know, is really no contest at all. Utee clinched the "title" with 10.5 points vs. 4 for aggy. (out of 19 -- a few events are still TBD).

(see: http://www.texassports.com/index.php?s=&change_well_id=2&url_article_id=712 )

Given that this is a "Lone Star" showdown, and BU is part of the "Lonestar State" (last I checked), it got me wondering how BU would have done this year vs aggy, utee, and for the heck of it, I threw in Tech. Our totals are out of 17, since we don't have men's or women's swimming & diving.

This is what I got:
Baylor vs. Texas
BU: 6
utee: 8
events outstanding: Men's Big XII Golf Championship, Men's & Women's Outdoor Track & Field (3 points up for grabs). (I think utee gets this, because men's golf is not our strength, and they need just one point to clinch).

Baylor vs. A&M
BU: 9
aggy: 3.5
events outstanding: Softball @ A&M, Baseball series, Men's Big XII Golf Championship, Men's & Women's Outdoor Track & Field (4.5 points up for grabs). Baylor clinches "Lone Star Showdown" with aggy.

Baylor vs. Tech
BU: 9
Tech: 4
events outstanding: Baseball series, Men's Big XII Golf Championship, Men's & Women's Outdoor Track & Field (4 points up for grabs). Baylor clinches "Lone Star Showdown" with tech.

To summarize: BU rocks. And, if utee wanted real competition, they would have Baylor in the Lone Star Showdown instead of aggy. http://www.baylorfans.com/ubb/cool.gif
