I know we're talking about SLC football expansion. Well, here's an article about that possible expansion and how the Islanders from A&M-CC may be involved.

The timetable for Southland expansion is progressing rapidly and, apparently, even the possibility of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi fielding a football team has made greater strides.

At a Southland Conference expansion meeting in Houston Saturday afternoon, A&M-Corpus Christi was able to present its case for inclusion into the conference. Islanders officials also were able to give an answer to the football question - maybe, in a few years, perhaps.

In a meeting geared to conference expansion, one of the first questions after A&M-Corpus Christi's slide presentation involved football. Specifically, members of the football-conscious conference wanted to know if the Islanders perhaps had considered adding that sport.

Interesting. TAMU-CC has done a great job with their sports program so far.
