A few years ago we had a nice discussion about D1 soccer in Texas. I believe there are still only 2 schools who sponsor D1 men's soccer and that is HBU and SMU. Well, starting in 2014 there might be a third. Texas - Pan Am was invited to the WAC last week and are presenting this to the UT board of regents tomorrow and are expected to officially accept Friday. For the WAC to keep their automatic bid in basketball, they need to sponsor at least 2 other sports (for each gender), baseball will not be a problem, but there is no other one that will make, so it is rumored that as a stipulation of the invitation, UTPA would need to start a Men's (and Women's) soccer program. This is not confirmed, but I know some of you would be interested.
