Since the summer of 2010, when collegiate athletics' massive wave of conference realignment began, the goal for most of the FBS schools sitting on the margins of college football, outside of the stated "power conferences," has been survival.
Survival and access, really. Access to college football's major bowls, access in recruiting top high school talent, access to the millions in television revenue the networks can't spend fast enough.
For middling schools like the University of Houston, navigating the ever-shifting landscape and trying to gain that access has been like walking a tight rope.
