NEW ORLEANS — This time a year ago, Texas State was trending upward.

Since jumping to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2012, every year prior to 2015 had been an improvement for the Bobcats who progressed from 4-8 that first season to 6-6 in 2013 and eventually 7-5 in 2014.

Last season was supposed to be Texas State’s best ever in the FBS ranks. Many predicted that the Bobcats would make their first bowl appearance and improve their stock as a burgeoning Group of Five program.

Despite watching his conference experience its fair share of upheaval in recent years, Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson feels that the future is bright for the league (Photo by Derrick E. Hingle/ Sun Belt Conference).

NEW ORLEANS — Could the Sun Belt survive another Power Five domino effect? Commissioner Karl Benson believes so.

In the midst of his fifth year as the head of the conference, Benson trumpeted the fact that the Sun Belt is in a better position than it was in 2010 to sustain itself against a potential conference realignment.

Just My Type: Thank you, San Marcos

Just My Type

The Daily Record saved my journalism career.

I'll always believe that.

Seven months removed from graduating with a Bachelor of Journalism degree at the University of Missouri, I found myself out of a job as the weekly newspaper where I was working folded.

I had two choices: Stay in the business or stop pursuing my dream and do something else.

The latter wasn't an option.

Luckily the Daily Record came calling.
