I wonder if our AD’s trip to Texas a few weeks ago had something to do with this?

I'd say that would be a safe assumption.

I'm more interested in whether or not this opens the door for another highly anticipated announcement to be forthcoming. :think:

No mention in SEMO’s site either, so don’t think it means much. SEMO also laid out a long overdue 3 phase construction plan last month for the football stadium and new field house for volleyball and gymnastics

A couple of us just got around to mentioning it. My take on the Southland deal is that it's not much more than a reaction to recent departures. Would have sat better with me if it'd been a proactive move a year and a half ago.

The new grandstand and field house deal is classic can kicking by at least 4 administrations. Those stands needed replacing in the 90's.

Exactly right - the complete lack of foresight and vision by the commissioner's office is why the league is imploding. Anything that is done is a reaction instead of doing something proactively.
