The UWF Argonauts’ commitment to add football is just one element of the Gulf South Conference’s gridiron surge that is making the league’s future look brighter than D1’s Big Twelve Conference. The GSC was hit hard by the departure of six of their football institutions joining with three former Lone Star Conference schools in forming the new Great American Conference. Those defections left the formerly fifteen- team conference with just five football playing institutions despite an overall membership of nine schools (the New Orleans Privateers have dropped down to Division 2 from Division 1 as part of the Hurricane Katrina fallout and have committed to the GSC about relaunching their football program for the first time in decades.) .

Now, not only will the Argonauts be adding football, but there are other signs of football health for the Gulf South Conference, formerly known as “the SEC of D2 football”. The Shorter University Hawks will be moving up to Division 2 from the NAIA and will be a full GSC member by 2014 and this week the conference announced the addition of its first Football Only member – the Florida Tech Panthers. Florida Tech will remain a member of the Sunshine State Conference for all of its other intercollegiate sports.
