    Excellent point that underscores why D2 isn’t a particularly good fit for private schools.

    That being said, Mary Hardin Baylor, Trinity, Hardin Simmons, and other private schools easily recruit good athletes due to the perceived value of a degree from said school. They aren’t pitching affordability. Some of those schools simply destroy people every weekend. If i was a LSC program there are a few D3 teams i definitely would not want on my schedule.

    If I am a tennis player with a half scholarship to XYZ state University in the LSC versus an offer to be admitted to, and get a degree from say Trinity, I’m going with the private all the way.

    Interesting. Private schools are at a huge recruiting disadvantage in D2 where all but a handful of players receive partial scholarships. With tuition at private schools running double or triple that of public universities, players at private schools have to come up with a lot more money to cover the gap between what their scholarship pays and the cost of attendance.

    Its no secret....3 schools are looking to add football in LSC from what I am told. With a 4th considering moving up to DII. Wasn't told which schools yet.

    BUT, it is very early in the process. Never know what is going to happen.

    I heard St Mary's had a big donor step up, much like UIW did. The info came at a luncheon at UD from an individual with the Dallas Diocese.

    If true i will be very pleased.

    I know when Wayland restarted their football program it was with the intention of wanting to move up to D2 eventually.

    11 schools would be great, 1 ooc game a piece would be great, although i would rather we go to a system where we can get at least 3 per year like the old days of north south except this time i recon it would be more east west.
    I too enjoyed the two divisions.

    However, gotta be careful it doesn't become too tough of a conference.
