Me too, Wally, but the way it looks now they've got a hard road ahead of them.

Trinity today announced Jerheme Urban has been hired/promoted to Offensive Coordinator:  http://www.trinitytigers.com/sports/fball/2012-13/releases/02-07-13_fb_urban - was secondary coach last season.    He replaces Jason Guthrie who took the OC role at Millsaps.

Think there could be a chance for all of us Texas schools and the rest of the ASC to form a football only conference so we could have more games on the schedule?
No.  If/when UMHB moves to D-2, then there might be a chance for the remaining 10 teams to form a conference.

From all indications, this is not going to happen. From what I understand from the limited resources, this question has been asked and the answer has always been "no." That obviously doesnt' meant it won't change, but as of now, the University is content to stay where they are.

But you have to admit it's kind of strange to be talking about "limited resources" when at the same time the school is spending $50M on a football stadium.   ;)

Moving from D-III to D-II is a large philosophical change in the way that the institution grants financial aid.  It is not just about team success.

I realize its still a lot of money, but the stadium itself is $20 million and the visitors side, aka the new student union building, is $30  million.

Another school announced it is joining the SCAC next year!

Unfortunately, it's only for swimming / diving - and UC Santa Cruz doesn't play football.  Oh well.

Probably, until they have to hit the time clock. ;)

Recent Trinity graduates Nyk McKissic and Riley Walker were recently named to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society, which "recognizes student-athletes who excel on the football field, in the classroom, and in the community."   More details:  http://www.trinitytigers.com/sports/fball/2013-14/releases/06-21-13_nff_honor

I had heard some speculation that Nyk might have another year of eligibility and might return; whether he had eligibility or not, he definitely will not be returning as the article states he will be attending University of Toledo Law School in the fall - on a full ride, no less! 

Congratulations to Nyk and Riley.

If resources acquired are streamlined for a specific purpose, like the nursing building being paid off before completion or the money donated by McLane is for the football field, then that means resources are limited to that which they are assigned.

According to a tweet earlier today from Joe Austin, the Southwestern head coach, SW has sold nearly 1300 season tickets to date.   Not too shabby (yes, I know it's not UMHB numbers).

The facility they are playing in holds 11,000 so there will be plenty of seats available for the rest of us.   :)
