Xavier has enjoyed many successful years in the GCAC,” Verret said, “and we wish the GCAC well in its future. However, we believe this move to the Red River Athletic Conference best fits Xavier’s competitive needs at this time.

Sounds familiar hmmmmmm

In basketball, LSUA runs that conference and XULA is 0-6 against them.

RRAC is a mix bag of PWI's and HBCU's. IMO, I think XULA would rather play more Texas schools.  I wonder would Dillard University follow them.

I'll say no. Stan spells his last name with two T's. Our president spells his with one.

Our president is a native of Haiti.
