2 questions related to the new State of LeMoyne:
1. Okay, which of these two universities would you designate as the University of LeMoyne (the state's flagship university)?:
University of South Alabama (which has a medical school) or
University of West Florida.
2. Would you consolidate the Morrill Act of 1862 Land Grant function with the University of LeMoyne or would you designate the 2nd choice of these schools as LeMoyne State University and make it the Morrill Act of 1862 Land Grant University? and if so, which one would be the University of LeMoyne (1-liberal arts based comprehensive flagship university), and which one would be LeMoyne State University (2-Morrill Act of 1862 Land Grant University)?
So to Consolidate at the University of LeMoyne or to designate a second state flagship as the LeMoyne State University to serve as the Morrill Act of 1862 Land Grant University?
USA with its slightly larger enrollment would become the flagship. There has been talk about USA starting a law school, and a pharmacy school, and with USA becoming part of a different state, that obviously would be moved forward. It would become the University of LeMoyne. (There is a LeMoyne College in Syracuse; if they get too upset at there being a U of LeMoyne, USA could become LMSU).
In spite of never having been a Land Grant school, UWF would assume the "Land Grant" function, but instead of becoming LMSU, it would become the University of Pensacola.
Also, USM's facilities in the counties coming from Mississippi would all become property of U of LeMoyne.
As part of an effort to attract more sporting events to LeMoyne, the state would encourage the former USA to sponsor Football (I-AA), Softball, Women's Gymnastics, and Women's Bowling. The Jaguars would remain in the Sun Belt and play football in the Ohio Valley or Southland. The Lady Jags would join fellow Sun Belters Arkansas State as bowling-only members of the SWAC.
