I think June 30th is somehow a magic date, by which you must announce a conference change or face another year's delay in the process. I'm not sure why this is so, but it may have to do with filing schedules with the NCAA....

Assuming this to be true, we should hear an announcement on the Southland Expansion and also official acknowledgement of the Big Sky inviting and admitting Northern Colorado, on or prior to June 30, 2005.

The Southland will expand to twelve teams, taking UCA and Centenary. (Why else would the Southland ask Centenary to join the talks ?) Unless the Southland takes in four new teams (highly doubtful) Tarleton State’s move to DI will have to wait, and Corpus Christi and UTPA will left in fragile positions. This will give the following travel partner arrangement.

UT-Arlington / Central Arkansas (Southwest Airlines flight)
Centenary / NW St
UT-SA/ Texas St
SeLa / Nicholls St
McNeese St / Lamar
Sam Houston St / SF Austin

Two interesting links:

http://www.caller.com/ccct/islanders/article/0,1641,CCCT_820_3797836,00.html (reg required)

http://www.shreveporttimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050522/SPORTS02/505220323/1001

Corpus Christi threw the Southland Conference a big bone to chew on:


Quote:
In a meeting geared to conference expansion, one of the first questions after A&M-Corpus Christi's slide presentation involved football. Specifically, members of the football-conscious conference wanted to know if the Islanders perhaps had considered adding that sport.
A&M-Corpus Christi, which always has said football would be added - if at all - years and years down the line, gave a different answer than in the past. Athletic director Dan Viola said university president Flavius Killebrew handled the question, and answered that football had not been ruled out, and that the university wanted to reach an enrollment of 10,000 before a Division I-AA program might be started.
Killebrew's projection for a 10,000 enrollment: 2010.


I would still handicap the winners as Centenary/Central Arkansas, but Corpus Christi would be a tough school to turn down.

If Centenary moves to the Southland and Corpus Christi gets left out, it might actually make sense for the Mid-Con to consider a Tarleton State/Corpus Christi combo. With Tarleton growing as a school, close to the metroplex and an easy/cheap flight to Corpus Christi, it would probably make more sense for the MidCon than a UTPA-Corpus Christi combo. Oral Roberts U would probably be thrilled, as they want a Texas presence (and near the metroplex) and Tarleton could play Great West Football.

Third time's a charm for Centenary and SLC?
Centenary takes another run at SLC
May 22, 2005

By Scott Ferrell

sferrell@gannett.com

Introductions weren't mandatory Saturday when Centenary College officials met with Southland Conference presidents and a select group of athletic directors in Houston.

Many of the Southland officials and Centenary officials were familiar with one another from the school's previous attempts to join the SLC in 1998 and again in 1999.

Six years later, though, Centenary's chances of joining the Southland appear to be better than at any time in the 1990s. . . .

So it's been 2 (?) weeks since the 5 schools made their presentations. Does anyone out there have an clue as to when something may be announced ?

I thought maybe the Southland folks were re-convening last weekend ?

I wonder if the Mid-Con has a quick reaction plan, should Centenary announce a departure ?

Are there any Mid-Con meetings scheduled in the near future ?

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

McNeese State
Nicholls State
Northwestern State
Sam Houston State
Stephen F. Austin

Texas at Pan American

I don't. That will be just as bad as the Atlantic 10 and Big East conferences.

2006-2007 Season

Southland Conference ?
Central Arkansas
Centenary*
Lamar
McNeese State
Nicholls State
Northwestern State
Oral Roberts*
Sam Houston State
Southeastern Louisiana
Stephen F. Austin State
Texas at Arlington
Texas at San Antonio
Texas A&M at Corpus Christi
Texas State at San Marcos



According to the quote and if it's possible, will Texas at Pan-American be added alongside with the rest of the Southland Conference teams (now that Louisiana at Monroe would be withdrawing or departing out of the Southland Conference for a possibility of joining another conference)?

And P.S.: I can guarantee that Oral Roberts and Centenary will maintain in the Mid-Continent Conference. But I'm not sure if Central Arkansas might join an NCAA DI conference YET after leaving the Gulf South Conference.
