It would depend on if the Texas schools want to all be in the same division.
I, personally, would prefer the North/South split. All of our division games are basically at schools along I 10. All are drivable and we have a Houston exposure, important for recruiting as we need a Texas presence. Plus much better travel cities in Houston, San Marcos, San Antonio, Hattiesburg and Mobile, than Ruston, Birmingham, and Jonesboro.
I guess it will be what it will be.
