I think that is a better fit for them anyway.
Lamar,Commerce,HCU,AMCC in one conference vs having to go west to Utah and California/East to Tennessee and Kentucky in Football. Makes you wonder if weíre eventually going to see an all Texas conference at some point with how many we have in D1 FCS/Mid Majors

You have:
Tarleton
Houston Christian
Abilene Christian
Lamar
Commerce
UTRGV
AMCC
UTA
SFA
UIW
TX Southern(Just including for sake of inclusion)
Prairie View A&M(Same as TXSO)
Thatís a 10 school league without the HBCUís that probably would never be in a position to join.
Maybe UT-PB gets a call too? Irdk the state of their athletic programs currently.
