A group of Texas lawmakers sent a letter to University of Texas officials this week with one simple message: stay in the Big 12.

They also suggest TCU and the Big East should join.

The addition of TCU would restore the nostalgia of the old Southwest Conference should the Big 12 merge with the Big East, according to the letter.
