Is there any possibility of Tarleton St. moving to the Sunbelt?
I doubt that they move to the SBC. But, the Southland might be giving them some attention. Since, Tar. State is dropping well over $25 million into their facilities. While, also spending quite a bit on other campus building projects. They should be completed in the next year or so, which would set them up nicely to be the final addition to the SLC roster.
IIRC, Abilene Christian and Incarnate Word should both be half way through with their four year reclassification process. Which means the timing should be right for the final addition to the conference(2016 or 2017), which would give them 12 for fb and 2 for Oly sports.
I believe that Sam Houston should be making the jump up to FBS soon. Their scheduling has been outstanding and they have won their conference, something like, four out of the last five seasons. They also play a great brand of bb at Sam Houston.
Personally, I feel Sam Houston would be an excellent addition to pair up with Texas State and the Louisiana schools. Sam is relatively close to the Houston market, they are competitive, they reside in a recruiting hot-bed, and they win. What more could a conference ask for, right?
