I didn't realize Texas-RGV used to be
Texas-Pan American who was kicked out of the Sun Belt. No way this is even a lateral move. I guess Chasse really wanted out. Regardless, I'm sorry to see him go. I figured at some point we would see Chasse move up to a P5 program. I would think this move delays that for a number of years.

It's also UT Brownsville, upside 28,000 students, downside more than an hour between campuses.

RE: I didn't realize Texas-RGV used to be
According to a 2017 release there were 17,000 students at edinburg campus and 5,000 at Brownsville. Are all the sports based in edinburg? Realistically, if football is brought on you are still looking at 17,000 students.

It's the only time I can remember a conference member ever being ejected from any conference when the Sun Belt threw Pan American out of the conference.

Serial serious NCAA violations if memory serves.

Basketball recruiting violations. Go on probation, clean house. Hire a new coach, start winning, discover he's cheating.

The kicker was Pan Am when they had to fill out the suggested punishment put down the death penalty because they were death eligible. NCAA was like oh heck no, you aren't getting off that easy.

It wasn't so much the serial cheating (which never sits well with presidents and chancellors) as it was the BS stunt of asking for the death penalty that lit the fuses around the league.
