This lineup would make as fine a regional conference as you could hope for. And with national appeal. Lot of old rivalries and potential for new ones. Make it happen. 04-rock

I know this was a joke.... but c'mon.... You've got more people tied up in scholarships, coaching and picking up after the "participants" than you do fans in the seats COMBINED. Why don't we add 15m sailing as well.

We're working on women's sailing. If we added baseball we'd have to give up probably two men's sports. Except for the "revenue" sports, the only remaining men's programs are elite NCAA tournament calibre programs (soccer, swimming, tennis, golf). We won't be adding three more women's sports just to get baseball (I can't see us adding softball, bowling, lacrosse). Apparently our administration is very very serious about actually complying with Title IX. I suspect that it has something to do with our bid for the Bush Library.

UAB fan here on my first visit to the SMU board (just came over to see whats up w/ the bball coach situation)...
i was pretty surprised by this thread? why do you feel theres an anti-texas feeling? just curious...ive never gotten that impression from way over here (granted, i dont live anywhere near c-usa country anymore)
not that it matters, but im glad to have SMU in C-USA

It may not be glamorous but at least it would be OURS and no one would treat us like second class citizens the way we were treated in the WAC or the way we're being treated(and will continue to be treated) in C-USA. I fear that if something like this does not happen UTEP will just take the easy way out and accept the first offer that comes our way from the MWC.

You never wanted UTEP in CUSA in the first place. Just be real about it and stop hiding your feelings behind this lame a$$ excuse.

Shhheessshhh!

Many posters in the Eastern Conference have delusions of being the next Big East raid. I don't want to say its a large number relative to the entire fan base, but they're pretty vocally "anti-west". These are the same people who have to think that everyone else must suck in order for them to succeed.

smu sucks
SMU sucks today, tomorrow, and always will.
SMU should be an independent. They are an embarrassment to CUSA.
I'm surprised the coaches are still there after doing nothing but
sit on their butts. I'm tired of losing and I'm tired of excuses.
