Tarleton does have one thing that NMSU does not.

A stable football situation.

And that includes playing four other schools inside their own state as a conference game. They also have significantly more upside too as far as what they can accomplish (reasonable access to the postseason, not playing a schedule chalk full of money games, etc.) in turn.

Yes and NMSU is in a better position than Duke because we’ve had an easier path to the NCAA tournament. Oh ok lol

So when you make the jump to FBS, which apparently is happening faster than the ink drying on your WAC contract, you’re telling me Tarleton will never play money games? Or do you expect your amazing success as a DII powerhouse to automatically transition to FBS?

This has nothing to do with the outcome, but did NMSU pay Tarleton for the game. I.E. money game. Can anyone show me an instance where a FCS school played at a FBS school and it wasn't a money game? I can assure you FCS upsets of FBS schools happen almost every year. In some cases it is less of an upset than others but don't tell that to the FBS school that lost.

They have so much money and are so good, they'll be one the ones paying the other teams. In 5 years03-lmfao

Here we go. Was wonder how long it would take for the narrative to go from "NMSU was a pillar in getting the SLC defectors to go WAC and encourage FBS ambitions" to "screw NMSU, you guys suck, why do you even have FB?!?!"

Gotta love these SLC defectors.

Well, before they officially defected, they were voted out. So they in turn, did something worse to Chicago State to show they are above the fray and a classy group who is easy to work with.

One might say they are more like the Southland defecated, than defected.

The Chicago move doesn't bother me other than the classless manner in which it was publicly handled. Also not wanting or being capable of toughing through one season of travel to Chicago speaks volumes of what to expect from the SLC defectors. Then of course we got the "boot Seattle" nonsense on the heels of the Chicago stuff. Fun times ahead.

The Chicago move was just very unnecessary. If Chicago State had not joined when they did, the WAC auto bid would have likely gone away, like quickly. With the distance and expenses they incurred, they could habe just as easily said no thanks. It was so touch and do, we really did not know if there would be a conference, and without them there would not have been. They were the ones racking up the mileage more than anyone.

But most of the texans will likely be gone soon enough anyway.

Oh I agree. They played a hand in keeping the WAC alive, as did Seattle and every other member along the way and that shouldn't go unrecognized. However as an institution, they have bigger issues on their hands that far outweigh sponsoring D1 athletics.

For me the final straw in supporting their inclusion in the WAC was using the China Virus as an excuse to not have to spend the money on athletics. Everyone else found a way to make it work, they needed to step to the plate and do so as well.

Seattle joined the WAC before it was totally decimated. Like now, Seattle had really nowhere to go. While Chicago State did help keep the WAC afloat, they were given an opportunity to compete for an autobid. Had they said no thanks, they would have probably been an Independent with NJIT, and maybe all by themselves. Who knows if the WAC would have taken NJIT if CSU said no.

I feel bad for the student athletes at CSU, but their athletic department was never serious about competing at this level. And we’re talking about the WAC here. Not exactly the strongest conference in America.

Until now, the WAC was just a bunch of castoffs that nobody wanted. Somehow we were able to get UMKC to join, but thankfully they left. Maybe some schools will be more attractive in a few years, but I don’t really see anyone going anywhere.

RE: WAC FBS - Later rather than sooner
I'm kind of sad to see KC gone, but I get it. They're in a better conference now. But they had some decent years in basketball and some of their other sports were decent. Their women had better teams than the men, but to me, it was at least a sign they were working on things.

The downside is, even with Chicago State, the WAC reached a higher RPI than this future group will probably ever achieve. We lost Chicago and picked 300+ NET Lamar, so its a push as far as NET rankings go. With all the football fantasies, that's likely where the money will flow, so ultimately, as a basketball league, this "reload" won't likely achieve anything new. Not any at large bids, unless its a one off fluke. Even with NMSU back to a more normal NET ranking 100 spots higher than last season, there's not much new in the cupboard going forward.

Meh.

I’ll take Lamar over Chicago State every single time. Lamar had a bad year, but they’ll never be at the constant level of Chicago State. I think the WAC will be much improved RPI wise in 22-23. Next year, we will still have CSU dragging down the conference, but not enough to take away a 2nd bid. That’s far down the line, if ever.

Chicago State started out in their early WAC years as a decent team. Not great, but were 4th in the conference, had made the post season the previous year after winning the Great West tourney. But they fell fast after they started spending so much more on travel. That's not the sole reason, but when things are already tight, it takes its toll.

Lamar has a lot of work to do just to make it up to where Chicago State was coming into the WAC. We'll see if they can.

RE: WAC FBS - Later rather than sooner
Are we discounting that Lamar just hired a head coach from the staff of a Final Four squad? Between the hire, the transfer portal and avoiding losing some key players who decided to stay- Lamar can turn it around pretty quickly IMO.

Lamar has significantly more upside than Chicago State in the short term and long term

The three MBB adds from the Texas side of things otherwise were the SLC’’s best MBB schools of last few years and in case of Sam/SFA, most consistent of last decade. They aren’t no slouch and definitely not to the level of Chicago Stafe

If Lamar, Dixie and Tarleton can all get into the top 200 or even 250 in the next two years - the WAC will take a decent jump as they won’t be saddled with multiple 300+ schools

Tarleton does have one thing that NMSU does not.

A stable football situation.

And that includes playing four other schools inside their own state as a conference game. They also have significantly more upside too as far as what they can accomplish (reasonable access to the postseason, not playing a schedule chalk full of money games, etc.) in turn.

That’s exactly what bugged me too. I’m all for what the Texas schools as well as SUU and Dixie bring to the table, some bring immediate help in certain sports, some are projects for help down the road after they transition. But it’s the attitude that they’re somehow the savior of the conference and every other school should kiss their ass cuz Texas.

I don’t have a problem with any school talking crap about Chicago State and not wanting to play them. Does anyone here think NMSU, SU, GCU, CBU, and UVU want to travel to a bad part of Chicago to play in front of 100 people???

RE: WAC FBS - Later rather than sooner
I feel confident that Lamar will quickly climb back into the low two hundred rankings. Granted it is all on paper so far but the recruiting class that Brooks has put together looks significantly stronger than recent years. It is at least ten years since Lamar had a top notch recruiter. Also the previous coach put too many non-D1 teams on the early schedule creating winning seasons but not top tier conference basketball teams. In some cases who you play is more important than whether you win or not as for as ranking purposes go. Not sure what the discussion about Chicago State or basketball ranking has to do with when and if the WAC goes back to FBS.

I have a problem. Chicago State saved the WAC’s bacon. Now the AD’s are emailing each other about dropping Seattle and you are talking $hit.

I have a problem. Chicago State saved the WAC’s bacon. Now the AD’s are emailing each other about dropping Seattle and you are talking $hit.

D1 isn't for everyone and ChiSt held on long enough to help the WAC and now it's time for the WAC and ChiSt to go their separate ways. Unlike ChiSt SeattleU has great academics and puts money into their athletics. It wouldn't shock me to see SU leave at some point but they bring a lot to the table minus football. We all can easily see why no one wants to associate with ChiSt but holding those same ideas with SeattleU is moronic.

Without football and not being in Texas, you're both on the hot seat. That's the wave of the future for the conference apparently. Where will GCU go? I see limited s prospects.

Looks like you'll be subsidizing the trips west if you want to stick around long term lol.
