Source? Highlands is not joining the Lone Star for the main reason being that it would increase travel costs.

Highlands is a tiny little college in a tiny little town NE of Santa Fe, NM. Billy the Kid and other notable cowboys lived there in the late 1800's. I've been there once, just to take pictures at a Old saloon. David, trust me on this, this school is tiny tiny tiny.

However, things have become worse for Chicago State. I'd be shocked if they were in the WAC after the 2017-2018 school year.

The state budget crisis and sharp enrollment decrease at Chicago State has been documented. The school is barely staying alive.

I came across another message board thread discussing the Chicago State situation:

http://www.scout.com/sports/college/cfn/...ath-spiral

They are doing well to offer classes at this point. They have no business trying to run a Division I athletic program.

Thanks for that. It's amazing they still offer sports at all with their entire existence in stake

Athletics is part of what's keeping the doors open, long-term. A large proportion of their freshman enrollment are athletes. Why else would you go there?

Chicago State only had 86 Freshmen for Fall 2016. I imagine that all the Freshmen were athletes.

They had 37 Freshmen on various teams. That comes to 43% of all incoming Freshmen.

http://texannews.net/to-d-1-or-not-to-d-...-question/

Western New Mexico joined.

When RMAC added South Dakota Mines? It added more travel. Dixie State also added somewhat a travel. As it is, the only close rivals in RMAC are Colorado State-Pueblo and Adams State. Western State and Fort Lewis a little bit over to the west.
Lone Star have Western New Mexico, Eastern New Mexico, West Texas A&M and Angelo State. As it is, several schools from the Lone Star Conference are looking to join D1 and want in in the Southland Conference. I think the only way they can go into D1 is by joining the WAC.
I am wondering if New Mexico Highlands backed out because Oklahoma Panhandle State moving to NAIA? That would have been another close team to play in Lone Star.

The article is 2 years old and is only speculating LSC additions. Highlands RMAC travel with SD and UT schools is less than what it would be in the LSC. Western NM actually reduced travel moving to the LSC.

Highlands is not that far from Western NM and Eastern NM. The old Frontier Conference used to have Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona schools. Northern Arizona used to be in that conference while others went to RMAC or Lone Star as Northern Arizona went to Big Sky.

How is that even remotely relevant to today? That conference was in 1956-62 with NAU, NM Highlands, Western NM, Santa Fe, Panhandle State (except the last year), and NM Military (first two years).

Highlands is very far from Eastern and Western New Mexico!!!

Highlands: Las Vegas, New Mexico is 360 miles away from Eastern New Mexico

Eastern New Mexico in Silver City, NM is 400 miles away from Western New Mexico which is in Portales--on the Texas border.

I'm a traveling salesman and have worked these places. You are making stuff up David!! Stop!!
