I hadn’t thought of it like that.

So Jax State and North Alabama become the ASUN’s Alabama and Auburn
Kennesaw State is the ASUn’s UGA minus the cute mascot.
Central Arkansas is the ASUN’s Arkansas minus the hog hats
Eastern KY is the ASUN’s KY Wildcats minus the basketball trophies

McNeese would become the ASUN’s LSU minus the money,

Still a few football playing team short in different states but I can see it....

Lipscomb is clearly their Vanderbilt—private school, Nashville, doesn’t field a football team.

Vanderbilt has always been the odd ball in the SEC.

LOL.

Only private school in the conference, bad at basketball solid baseball. Football occasionally goes to a bowl game when they can get a .500 season. I've honestly forgotten they were in the SEC before. Multiple times.

ETSU and UTC would fill the Vandy and Tennessee slots

Western Carolina would fill the South Carolina slot

They would appear to be the odds on favorite unless an existing FCS school like Weber St, NAU, or Sac St had an abrupt change of heart.

Quote: Reader Steve asks:

Do you think West Texas A&M would be a WAC candidate for a 14th school, and are they likely to move to D-1 in the next few years?

Russell: We did a fundraising project a few years back for WTAMU as part of the construction and opening of Buffalo Stadium. They met a lot of criteria – great leadership, great competitive success, great facilities, and in addition they have a 10,000-plus student body and supportive alumni and fans.

I think they’re a great candidate to consider for a move to Division I and geography-wise a nice fit with the Texas WAC schools as well as NMSU and Dixie State. The pandemic makes it a much harder discussion and a departure by any Lone Star Conference football school really hurts that league. After all, only seven of the 15 schools in the LSC play football.
