Interesting article from UNT country regarding SBC expansion.Despite denials by La tech,they are still being mentioned along with La Monroe and W Ky as candidates for the SBC 8th spot.Apparently the SBC will have an 8th full time member "in the next few weeks".
It is rather unlikely that they will be able to successfully raid the WAC.Check it out at http://www.gomeangreen.com/cgi-bin/sunbelt/viewpost.cgi?thread_id=37980&message_id37980
This is the deal. WKY is waiting this round out.
This is partly due to the fact they just spent a boat load of money refurbishing Diddle Arena, and partly due to them wanting to wait until the requirements and what's expected of them to be 1-A or known for sure. I expect them to announce their 1-A intentions to join their SUNBELT brethren in '05 or '06.
l-tech is going to ride that WAC pony unril it dies. Wright Waters(Belt commish) is giving the techies every opportunity to discover reality and come back. They won't.
That leaves ULM. They are in the process of hiring a new AD. Also, they are waiting on the results of an audit being done by the UL system board. Both things will be finished in the next couple of weeks. Expect ULM to be announced as the 8th all-sport member in that time.
Any other questions?
