Next for the Sun Belt are the pickups of the University of Phoenix, Slippery Rock, and UAPB.

I've been watching Texas State for a few years now and they have never really been impressive.  Based on the 3 sports that most people look at football, basketball, and baseball.  They have been middle of the pack to bottom of the Southland conference over the past few years in football.  They won the title in 2008 with a 5-3 record only because UCA was the real champs that year but they couldn't be awarded the title.  Basketball finishes around .500 every season.  Baseball is pretty good they usually win 35-40 games a season.  Overall they are going to struggle for many years like I stated before especially in football.  Baseball may hit a few bumps along they way but shouldn't be too bad.  Basketball will be probably be worse.  They are kind of like North Texas you would think they would have good teams based on they are located but they just can't seem to put it together.  San Marcos is in a really tough spot too.  20 minutes north is the University of Texas and 20 minutes south is UTSA both areas that I consider more attractive, believe me I've been to San Marcos, although I haven't been there since they upgraded their stadium.  So its going to be tough for them to break through and have success.

Wasn't Texas State the team UCA beat on a televised ballgame in which Nathan Brown threw six TDs in the first half?

Yes Texas State was the team beat.  Sorry my mind only picked out certain words when I read that the first time.

They'd put up a better fight than ASU.

If you go to a Road Game at TX State be sure to get down there early and eat some real TX Mex and enjoy the River at Fredricksburg.

70 Miles to Fredricksburg? Maybe the Guadalupe river at New Braunfels and eat at the Gristmill in Greune.

University of Phoenix
You'd think with 350,000 student enrollment, they would be able to field a football team!!!

They left the Southland conference in 2011. They played a Southland Schedule in 2011 as a FCS Independent in football.  They played in the WAC this year.

Looks like we're also getting Georgia State. Think they were brand new just a few years ago, didn't someone from LR Central play on their very first team?

Remember, there are those to whom it's a big deal.

This video (a bit long, but not bad) was made by a former classmate of my daughter's.  Georgia Southern, at least some folks there, is happy about the move.
