College Athletics: Texas State on the outside?

Texas State sports fans better hope the university has a horseshoe or an entire rabbit hidden somewhere. The Bobcats are going to need it pretty soon.

As of next week, Texas-San Antonio, Louisiana Tech, San Jose State and Utah State will be leaving the Western Athletic Conference. The Roadrunners and Bulldogs will head to Conference-USA, while SJSU and USU will join the Mountain West Conference.

So where does that leave Texas State? In short, not in a good place.

With those four schools leaving the WAC, the conference is down to three schools (Idaho, New Mexico State and Texas State) — and it’s impossible for the WAC to survive on four schools.

Like it was stated before, don’t be surprised if the Bobcats reach out to a familiar face in Karl Benson, the current commissioner of the WAC. Benson is now the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference and would probably throw Texas State a lifeline if need be.

We’ll try to get in contact with Texas State athletic director Dr. Larry Teis at some point today (Saturday) to discuss this matter further.

    Fire Teis already…no reason for UTSA do get the nod over TXST! The guy is incompetent!
