      Is Frisco where the Southland HQ is located?

              Since last fall W Florida was the other school I was told repeatedly told would join Commerce in going to the Southland. I’ve been skeptical but it appears at least half of the equation is a reality.

                Don’t think for a minute that A&M wasn’t pushing hard for this. 2 down 2 to go with a merger along the way.

                  All this enthusiasm, but people were predicting WT was movin' on up yesterday, when all it was was a stupid inaudible fund raiser. Maybe Commerce will move up, if so best of luck.

                  Meanwhile back at WT the "Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch. And a wheel on the track." - with apologies to Neil Young.

                    For what? Misspelling his name?

                      The Southland makes no geographic sense for the Argos, but the games at McNeese and Commerce this year makes this idea look more interesting. The rumor mill on the GSC thread is all about West Florida joining the ASUN, which does make geographic sense for the Argos.

                      The problem with this move up for West Florida is the triple cost of FCS since the State of Florida refused to help the Argos with the football startup and I doubt they would help with a move to FCS at this time or the near future. An FCS move would likely get the Argos games against FSU, Florida, UCF and other schools in the state and a chance to surprise and/or be thrashed.

                        Oops! I searched for "Neal Young" and his info came up. Bad.

                        Thanks for pointing out my mistake. You have a heart of gold, Old Man.

                          Geographically either conference makes sense. Austin Peay and Central Arkansas are not exactly next door. I have been on the fence with this and really haven't said much until Commerce jumped ship. I was thinking late spring at the earliest if then when I was told about it. One thing I can guarantee you is that there is an open invitation on the table whether or not W Fla can make it happen is on them.

                            Some other press about the move.
                            A couple of news sources are reporting that the Texas A&M University-Commerce Lions will be leaving the Lone Star Conference in athletics to join the Southland Conference.
                            Go GSC and Roar LIONS!!

                              The speculation was WT because I, along with many others, heard 2 LSC teams were receiving invites. It very well could have been WT and they declined. It also could have been Angelo who would have also declined.
