UNO plans to start football. The longer the Privateers don't have it, the better for A&M-CC.


With UNO pulling the plug on their 'club team'....it is looking doubtful that UNO will begin their 'scholarship level' team.

Could you please explain how UNO not having a team...affects A&M CC for the 'better'?

On the plus side.....UNO did....just start a women's sand volleyball squad.

As UNO was recovering from the havoc of Hurrican Katrina, they were faced with (after their special exemption expired)
having to meet an NCAA D-1 requirement for participation in a minimum number of sports.

Someone pointed out that the easy thing to do, would be to have men's and women's volleyball, and men's and women's sand volleyball.
The thinking - schools that do this typcially have the same group of athletes playing both sports, so it's cheap for the school.....

I don't have a problem with UNO not sponsoring fb., at this point. The Southland has the opportunity, with ORU leaving, to grab whatever number of fb schools that they want. They can pick up one more...or stay with an odd number.

Either way it goes...I don't see much of this having any affect on A&M CC. They will continue to plug away at their existing sports without issue.

A&M-CC initially promised to start football when it joined the Southland.

Really? I never knew about that fact, even when TAMU-CC was a very young and newly athletic program, dating back their Indy days from 1999-2000. However, ever since joining the Southland in 2005-06 or 2006-07, no plans have been developed yet; just like UTA's fb re-instation plans when leaving the Southland to join the FBS world (first the WAC for only 1 season and now the Sun Belt).

Hopefully, this will help them develop much faster and start getting some solid recruits.
