Care to elaborate?

Charlotte is the only reasonably easy travel destination for ODU fans. I live in the western part of the state so it's a little better for me but if you were coming from Norfolk:

Charlotte: 5+ hours
Huntington: 7+ hours
Murfreesboro: 10+ hours
Birmingham: 11 hours
Bowling Green, KY: 11+ hours

I do sort of understand where you guys are coming from on travel though. Outside of ULM, the only schools reasonably close to Jonesboro are Memphis and like half of CUSA's Eastern Division.

Are you claiming that none of the Texas CUSA schools are within the top 6 in that league?

That's exactly what I'm saying

An invite to the AAC would be ideal as ECU, Navy and Temple are all under 5 hours. Short of that a SB/CUSA realignment would at least gain us a couple more within a 6 hour drive in App and CCU and both the GA schools are closer than MT and WKU.


Being right up against the Atlantic will cause these problems so travel won't be great for us unless we go back to the CAA. Our admins done well scheduling OOC though. Other than the back end of a series with Buffalo, after this year I don't think we have any games scheduled with a school outside of VA or NC, including several ACC schools.

Can anyone name the CUSA TX teams without looking it up is the real question..I did after some long thought.

You know there are 17 other sports the conference offers and you'd then essentially leave UTA on an island, thereby increasing travel costs for the entire conference. Not to mention you'd be giving up the team that finished second in the all-sports standings and alienating UTA, which finished third. That means that the competitiveness of every other sport falls.

But, you know, football.

This is why a TXST-for-CLT trade won't happen. Good point.

Yea, but you can steamroll UNCC year in and year out.

I would much rather have TXST.

As opposed to Texas State? These Coastal fans talk big don't they?

And what would that be that's in it for CUSA. Texas State football over the last 5 years avg is 4-8, the last 2 years 2-10. Texas State basketball over that same period of time has a 16-21 record. So again what the #%^& would CUSA be gaining, a decent Softball program and as much as I love watching Marshall spoftball, no thanks.

At least Charlotte looks to be showing life in football and if Mark Price could keep the players he has recruited from transferring he may just get them back to being respected in basketball.

Baseball was pretty good this year and soccer is always good as well, FWIW
