Texas State falls in the Austin DMA just like North Texas falls in DFW. Granted neither of us have very good market penetration because of the more notable schools in the area, but that's beside the point.

Of course that also means Kent is in the Cleveland DMA and so is not a small market team.

And Ohio is in the rapidly growing Columbus DMA....

Texas State is legitimately in the Austin/San Marcos/Round Rock DMA.

Not my fault Akron does not have their own DMA and if they did Kent would have to be in it as it is about 10 miles from city center. Heck there are city schools that are not that close to their city center.

Kent State is the flagship public of N.E. Ohio with branch campuses throughout the region. Claiming the Cleveland DMA is fairly legitimate with the school's mission in the region.

It's harder by contrast for Miami to make the case of holding down the Dayton DMA (Wright State) or Cincinnati DMA (UC) as they don't have the same level of system wide enrollment.

Overall system wide enrollment is an important factor in the marketing value of athletic properties at the said school in question.

Cannot believe that you don't care.

He's a Miami fan who can't get over the fact that his Redhawks have lost 6 straight in football to arch rivals Ohio and Cincinnati.
