Someone might argue that having a broader geographic profile might in some way increase the profile of these schools within Texas, in which case there might be some benefit, but arguing that these need to be recognizable in California or Georgia or Michigan in order to be successful at their level is just being silly.

And even if there was that abstract argument to be made ... the WAC is going to provide that? Really?

Yes, the more these Texas schools play in other states raises their profile much more than if they stayed in their own backyard as the SLC has done for years.

I don't think that's supported factually. No recruit or prospective student is impressed that East Texas State plays road games in Seattle and Sacramento, or in Beaumont and Bandito City, when those road games are at schools they've never heard of, played in front of basically empty stadiums or arenas. Trading road games in backwoods Louisiana towns for road games in the remote corner of Utah and in distant big cities in empty gyms doesn't change anything.

My thoughts exactly. What added exposure is Dixie State going to get from playing at Tarleton? Not much. I live two hours from Stephenville. I never saw anything in the news or in the newspapers about Tarleton sports, much less their opponents this past season. Not trying to pick on Tarleton. Same could be said for any of the WAC/SLC schools in Texas. There's just no mention of Sub FBS schools in the media here, and the P5s get 80% of that attention. Even when SHSU was playing in the Natty a decade ago you never heard anything about it outside of the internet. Maybe they talked about it in Houston but I don't live there so idk.

The only added exposure is to the people in attendance and if they're in attendance they are either 1. A student or 2. an alumni. Odds are that no one in attendance is going to want to take their talents to go play school at "insert school name".

There are additional attendance groups, particularly with the big spectator sports. 3) Faculty/Staff and 4) Townies looking for their sports fix. I never attended Cornell, nor did anyone else in my immediate family, but I regularly went to football and basketball games and know plenty of other folks in the same basket as me.

True, but I'd bet at most non-p5 schools 75% of the people in attendance fall into the 2 groups I mentioned.

I'll just say this...the idea that UIW's bid is "dead in the water" because we haven't had news come out right after a site visit is 100% not true. In fact, I can't even completely verify that all of the site visits have already happened (I had different people give me different dates, but everybody agreed that COVID had dramatically slowed this process).

This isn't a league looking to add a new flagship school. It's picking from a position of strength between two to four institutions that will likely be near the bottom of the conference standings in many sports. They don't have to pick tomorrow. They're in a position of relative strength.

That doesn't mean UIW will get the bid. I know at least one Texas4 President who is still *really* against it. But I know it isn't dead.

That's how I felt the WAC was going about it to fill the next (last?) spot. A hasty decision would not do the WAC any favors.

If I'm Corpus Christi I'm moving mountains to figure out how to make football work and get into the WAC with the other Texas publics

Taking Corpus Christi on the condition the start a program would be a win win for both the Southland and the WAC

One would think that Div1 A&M Corpus could merge with Div 2 A&M Kingsville to form a Div1 football team and a large public university that would be attractive to the WAC. Probably a lot more so than UIW or WTAMU.

Zero chance. TAMU-CC could have been in the WAC at anytime over the last 7 years. They chose to remain in the SLC. No more room for them in the WAC at this point.

I can only speak from experience with Fresno State, but based on that I'd say 75% of the people in attendance are group 4). I would venture to say that this would be true for all of FBS and maybe half of FCS.

That’s the best scenario for CC. I’m not sure how easy a merger into South Texas A&M will be though.

I can understand why they would be reluctant for tennis or even basketball, but for football and mostly divisional competition, that’s a different story. But the Texas A&M system would have to set it up for it to happen.

Only because student tickets at most places are part of your student fees.

I don't know anything about the A&M system etc, but I very strongly doubt that the conversation would run anything like

"Gentlemen, we are considering a merger of A&M Corpus Christi and A&M Kingsville."
"Hmmm. What are the upsides?"
"Well, A&M Corpus Christi is a Division I athletic program without football, while Kingsville is a Division II athletic program with football. Together, they form a Division I program with FCS football"
"Gadzooks, why have we waited so long!"

Maybe not. Maybe the A&M people are too short sighted to see that a Div1 school, with the student population of the combined campuses and potentially FBS status, wouldn’t attract fans and a lot of new students.

You dont need to be FBS or D1 to attract students

Zero chance. TAMU-CC could have been in the WAC at anytime over the last 7 years. They chose to remain in the SLC. No more room for them in the WAC at this point.
Agreed. They could have moved anytime

Also, don't trust Corpus with that promise.
Rumor has it that football was a condition of joining in the Southland in 2005 and yet here they are with no team today.

It also allows you to consolidate departments and eliminate multiple high paid administrators positions.

Merging takes two competing campuses and puts them under the same umbrella for fundraising, hiring and makes a single 20-25k student institution with access to Permanent University Funding.

All of which looks good to the bean counters.

Couldn't they merge just their athletic programs?

RE: Rumor: Incarnate Word gets site visit from WAC
The two schools have nothing in common except they are both proud members of the Texas A&M system and they are about 40 miles apart in south Texas. I doubt if they will ever be merged. The Corpus Christi campus appears to be landlocked and if they did merge, they would likely have to play football at the Kingsville campus. That would not be good for attendance. Then there is the issue of school colors and mascots and conferences and NCAA levels.

Corpus and Kingsville are a world apart culturally.
