Now that you bring it up ... this is long range dreaming but what about the formation of a new league? I like the Southland -- it's been good to us -- but getting a bit Texas heavy. The following configuration is a little more spread out, but represents six states as opposed to three and has a more broad regional appeal. And the travel wouldn't be that bad compared to what most of these schools face now and I think the major sports would be competitive across the league.

UCA
Southeastern Louisiana
Nicholls
North Alabama
Jacksonville State
UT-Martin
Samford
Austin Peay
Kennesaw State
West Florida (assuming they would want to move up eventually)
