Texas Tech student section was chanting, among other things Saturday night, "Pur-Ple Bay-Lor!."
Got Steel to thinking, ARE we Purple Baylor? How would one defend such a charge?
Both putatively religious institutions, or affiliated (in our name for Chrissakes); both private; both pretty small; both over priced.
Academically, pretty similar:
TCU formally holds to the doctrines of the Disciples of Christ. Baylor formally holds to the doctrines taught and held by Baptists.
Therefore, TCU is not purple Baylor. You would have to compare another university in the Disciples of Christ network.
