I apologize if this question has already been answered....

Would Austin College or Trinity have to receive an at-large bid to enter the playoffs next year or is the automatic qualifier still valid. (aka determined between the Austin College vs. Trinity game? I would assume theres no way that could be the case but I wanted to raise the question.

They would have to get a Pool B bid. There's a grace period before losing the automatic bid but you have to still have four schools to qualify for a grace period, I believe.

The SCAC gets its seventh (sadly non-football) member, Schreiner, in '13-'14:

Ensures the conference will keep its pool A bid for those sports where it has enough participants to qualify.

Perhaps football will be reinstated in Kerrville. As a junior college, Schreiner had its share of gridders looking to boost their GPAs in hopes of an eventual scholarship at some four-year venue.

I could see the scac increase its numbers by following the same game plan, bring in say University of the ozarks or TLU or both.

I wonder if, with the UAA affiliate option no longer being in play, if the SCAC is now more aggressively pursuing schools in this part of the country.   TLU would be the next school on the list, you'd think, but who had Schreiner on their list before yesterday's announcement? 

If TLU could be added, you would get travel partners like:

  • Trinity/Schreiner
  • TLU/Southwestern
  • UD/Austin
  • Colorado/Centenary (oops)

Gonna cut down on travel costs, that's for sure.

    Trinity/Schreiner
    TLU/Southwestern
    UD/Austin
    Ozarks/Centenary
    colorado/westminster (utah)


The tipping point of texas school's might have been reached to bring in TLU but finding a home for football is a problem for all school's. Ozarks is a small school but has big endowment for its size with maybe more Walmart/walton money coming in the future, they seem like an easy school to pick off to increase numbers. I'm not sure CC will even stick around d3 but the article in the cc newspaper awhile back said westminster was interested in the scac. Travel would be a pain but it might keep CC around and bring up numbers to 10 with nice travel partners. Out of those 10 only 4 have football programs, so that is a problem but the #'s are there for other sports.

As it stands now, the SCAC needs another baseball school and softball/women's soccer school!

Colorado College doesn't have any of those sports!

There are 6 schools playing women's soccer, softball and baseball.  Trininty, Southwestern, U of D, Centenary, Schreiner, and AC.  What is needed to maintain AQ in those sports?

Like Ralph said, one more school.   They can maintain the bid a year (or two?) while reforming but the clock starts next season.

TLU offers all three sports.  ;D

University of the Ozarks also offers those 3 sports and would seem like an easy get. TLU might have issue with where football goes but i don't see the problem with offering both a spot to get to 9 members to protect the scac at 8 members if cc moved to d2. The ASC would still have plenty of members and could possibly offer huntingdon but travel might be too difficult.

Trinity leads conference in members of Fall Academic Honor roll with 90 athletes. Pretty impressive numbers for the whole conference.

(El Tea Gray--re: 2012 Trinity Tiger Football Scherdule)

The ten-game regular season 2012 Trinity Tiger Football Schedule is posted on the Trinity Football website.

Guess what?   The Cru is back on Sat. 9/22/12 in San Antonio at 6 p.m.

Alright, well then I'm confused.  I thought the whole idea behind seceding from the SCAC was to reduce travel to places such as Colorado and Texas.  Yet everyone is still playing Trinity.
