Houston Chronicle: HBU making move to NCAA Division I

Since Houston Baptist U is moving from NAIA to the NCAA, their initial transition will be longer (7 yrs vs 5 yrs for UND). They may be a school on UND's basketball schedule in 2008-9. (As well as NJIT, Longwood, CSU-Bakersfield, Chicago St., Utah Valley, Seattle U (?), USD).

HBU was a member of the NCAA from 1967-90, competing at the Division I level for all but six years of that span. HBU currently competes in seven sports

I think I saw somewhere that UT Brownsville (same conference as HBU) was also thinking DI.

I wonder how much longer the NAIA has?

10 years before every school is a member of the NCAA??

As far as HBU goes, adding M/W xcountry, indoor track, outdoor track, and golf would be an easy and cheap way to get to 15 sports.
