LOL. Don't hold your breath on that. The NCAA hasn't exactly been doing a whole lot more than slapping wrists lately.

The Southland at least has Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston St. in basketball, and the conference is TX/LA centric so a NM team could fit in in football regionally.

Do you know how far Enema's U is from the closest Southland school? Texas is geographically enormous, NMSU is closer to UNLV than it is to SFA and Sam. ACU is about the only close SLC school.

All P5 schools should drop football.

UMass is a possibility if they don't get an AAC invite. I'm not sure how long they can survive as an independent and they have no desire moving their basketball team to C-USA/MAC/Sun Belt.

If you are going to use the term (affectionate for insiders, derogotory for outsiders) you need to get it right. FIFY. 04-cheers

RE: Which FBS or FCS schools will be the next to drop football?
I suspect that if FBS independence becomes unsustainable for NMSU the Aggies would drop football rather than reclassify FCS, no FCS league offers significant travel savings and it means foregoing the regular home games with UTEP and New Mexico. The only scenario where they might consider FCS would be if they got other sports into the Valley, then they might give it a shot in the MVFC.

UAB if they remain stuck with the cap on school transfers probably do eventually get starved into dropping again unless community interest stays high.

Possible FBS drops:
New Mexico St. (though I think they could find home in the FCS Southland)

Possible FCS drops
Monmouth
Rhode Island
CCSU
Sacred Heart

I don't think NMSU will ever drop football because they would have the stigma of being the only land grant university to drop football. While I do think that isn't likely that NMSU will wind up in the AAC, MWC, or C-USA, I do think they might be able to work something out with the SunBelt or a future western-based FBS conference.

Previously, I was thinking EMU was a sure bet to drop football, although I was hoping they wouldn't. EMU came back in a big way, so I think they're safe for awhile.

As for FCS, Sacred Heart could be a possibility along with Monmouth. I think Marist is a possibility as well, although I really hope all three keep football. But if they can't afford it, they can't afford it, and truthfully and I'm saying this from experience, there's nothing wrong with being a non-football school. I definitely think CCSU will find a way to keep football though as will Rhode Island.
