So, are the schools in the Southland Conference geographically closer to Texas Southern than the schools in the SWAC?

60% of the teams would be based in Texas. The rest La. It would eliminate all Ala. and Miss. travel.  Monetarily as for travel it's a plus. As for the conference over all profit, I'm guessing it's a big negative. Attendance is beyond poor

If Texas Southern has explored the possibility of joining a new conference it is a great thing.  The administrative team at every institution should be taking the time to explore the best opportunities to put their respective institutions in a position to be successful and fiscally responsible at all times.  The do not have to leave but they should listen to all opportunities.

It's always worth it from time to time to evaluate your current conditions to make sure you're in the best position for your program.

Hampton's move to the BigSouth can't be measured as of yet. But we do know that they spent less money traveling this year in-conference play and they've won several rings already.  But will the fans come back to support home games this year.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
