    It might have to out of need and desperation but surely won't be for right reasons... pride will be set aside to survive.

    The way I see it (and I could be near-sighted), is:

    UTSA, UTEP, RICE, UNT, Tx St., UTA; ASU, UALR, LaTech, ULM, Louisiana, USM, South Al & UAB. Now, you could drop the Alabama schools and go with WKU and MTSU, but USM is only 2 hours from Mobile, so you'd hurt them. Bowling Green and Murfreesboro are only >6 hrs away from Little Rock, so you're giving better travel options ASU and LR with WKU, MTSU, LaTech and ULM.

    If anything similar to this happens, Little Rock will be dropped from the SBC/CUSA and they would probably join the Horizon League. Same goes for UT-A. they would be dropped as well and probably join the Southland or a similar conference for all sports, excluding football.

    Funny that ESPN, Disney's $$ and their bowls might lead to realignment. 🏈

    Why do I remember that writer's name? Is he the Southern Miss beat guy that likes to UL(L) us for no apparent reason? I think there was a twitter thing with some of our fans and him a while back.

    so if I am reading you correctly, this re-alignment will leave no room for non-football members? Won't hurt the Texas schools (maybe Denton for non-football sports), but Arkansas State will get shafted. And I personally don't want to lose ASU Or South Alabama as a regular opponent. Good rivals.

    If it was in the Sun Herald it probably wrong since none of their supposed reporters ever get very near facts or research. That paper has withered down to basically a one section paper due to their horrible and liberal bs reporting that they do.

    I'm pretty sure that's the guy.

    Still don't think Tech will want ULM in

    Ark state and UL won't fight to keep them in the IMO

    But it is not fans that make that decision...it is the presidents that do.

    Maybe if all these presidents would do like our President and take Hydroxychloroquine, a good result could come from these decisions.

    Don't think we're jettisoning the Hoax so we can capture the dog killers.

    At least this president has the right people to advise him in place today.

    Don't be so sure. This will ultimately be T-Joe's decision. Remember a few years ago when ULM agreed to stop fighting us on the name issue? I know what we got out of that handshake agreement, but I don't know what we pledged in return.

    University presidents are much more willing to help each other out than us bitter fans are.

    I don't believe those numbers are close to accurate.
