Despite Final Four loss to Baylor, the future remains bright for Coogs

UH is now expected to join Brigham Young University, the University of Central Florida and the University of Cincinnati in a new Big 12 after the University of Texas and Oklahoma decided to move to the SEC.

University of Houston officials are scheduled to meet remotely with Big 12 staff at 11 a.m. to discuss the move.

The invited schools could become members by 2023 or 2024, depending on when UT and OU exit for their new conference home.

The Big 12 also has Baylor University, Iowa State, the University of Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State University, Texas Christian University, Texas Tech, and West Virginia.

He also answered questions about the acquisition of Stefon Diggs, and addressed any concerns the team has about their new receiver having the reputation as a “diva.”

In the video above, Rich Eisen reacts to Caserio's presser and projects how the season will play out for the Texans with Diggs added to the team. Let's just say he's bullish on the Texans.
