I know SFA well. Tarleton and SFA are similar in alot of ways. Except of course the fact that we OWN them in Football. But I digress...both are tradition-rich schools located in quaint little college towns. Tarleton, however, especially under current leadership, has become much more forward-thinking. Bottom line, whether SFA fans want to admit it or not, WAC > SLC. It has to do with upside, of which the SLC has none. If Hurd does indeed extend them an invite, SFA better get in, sit down, shut up, and hold on.
It should also be noted that SFA is now the only remaining independent public university in Texas. I think that will change soon. Well, the reality is it has to change if they want to keep up. UT already has a presence in East Texas with UT-Tyler, other East Texas schools Sam Houston and Lamar are now rolling with the Texas State System. Does SFA eventually join the A&M System? Travel costs wouldn't be so much of an issue then. Just sayin.

The reality is SFA, SHSU, ACU, and Lamar all know what they have in the Southland; and it will never be more than low mid-major conference. Joining the WAC gives these schools a chance to the push the WAC into the middle or upper echelons of the mid-major rankings, a notch below the MVC, but ahead of the Big West, Summit, Horizon, and Sun Belt in basketball with still room to improve.

SFA has had a good run in basketball recently, but they absolutely sucked before that. Those teams joining isn’t making a 2 bid league. If SFA goes back to sucking, they’re just the same as the other WAC teams, besides NMSU.
