I asked this question a while ago with no answer? Wasn’t Northwestern St a big rivalry with Sfa . I realize they moved up but do they still play? Do you guys prefer the WAC over the Southland?

SFA and NWST is/was a big rivalry, but SFA/Sam is bigger. We aren't playing in football this year and not sure when we will play again. We are playing them in basketball this year.

As for the WAC/Southland debate, I'll take the WAC 100 times out of 100.

2. It will be nice to beat the #1 team next week

Not a lot of people happy about this week. Apparently someone (FCS) bailed last minute and we didn't want only 4 home games. They wanted a fifth game at Homer

Sounds like the same just saying.

Nothing like the same at all  The WAC has a vision that the Southland did not have 

It has a strong history of success and is much better positioned for the inevitable Div1 changes that are coming in football 

It is a possible 2 bid basketball conference 

While SFA and SHSU fans may argue and trade jabs I think the vast majority of both fan bases were in agreement with this move for the betterment of both schools.

DefinitelY a better move for both schools. South land was/is content with the status quo. SFA and Sam are/were ready to move all of their athletic programs forward.
