We had a faded SoCon logo that wasn't re-painted in the off-season, so it was there this year, but wasn't greatly visible. Then before the final game it was scrubbed off.

So, if offers are going out to both JMU and MSU, I'm guessing the JMU offer is for all sports and the MSU offer is for non-football sports, with an option for MSU to begin a transition to FBS in '16-'17 and complete it in '18-'19 when Idaho can be replaced.

Having said this, I'm nonetheless skeptical of these reports because of the impact of adding both JMU and MSU on non-football divisional alignment. If both schools are invited, the SBC will have 13 members for non-football sports, which isn't workable. NMSU can be upgraded to full membership to balance the divisions, but that means the Louisiana schools will have to play in separate divisions, which doesn't make sense. My prediction is still just one addition to the conference, in the east, with the choice coming down to JMU (preferred), Liberty (fallback), or EKU (dark horse).

+1. The SBC needs one school, an eastern school. JMU or Liberty. There is no good reason to go beyond 12 at this time.

Idaho is not leaving. Missouri State is not coming. These ridiculous rumors will never stop.

I think you are going to be pretty disappointed when this all works out.

I always had an idea for JMU. Since they would be ineligible for all CAA titles once they declare they are leaving (VCU and Mason announced literally two months before moving to the A-10 to avoid this), how about bring in JMU for all non-football sports this summer, then football next summer? Football will be ineligible for titles anyway due to the transition and football schedules are already set.

Then next summer, Missouri State, Liberty, NMSU, whatever.

They would be good for the conference but hearing how superior they are and that the CAA is better than the SBC is a bit much. It is bad enough when you hear that garbage from CUSA or MAC fans.

are you kidding me? that's a great attitude for a new fan base to have! it gives the rest of the east a team to hate because of their overblown fans and it will be all the sweeter when they get their asses beat

If this goes down, that's certainly what I'd hope for. That all-sports lame duck year ODU went through looked pretty rough.

We'll be following the VCU/GMU model. That being said, if we accept an SBC invite, then we have already lined up homes for FH and WLAX, and they need to be able to move at the same time.

Lots of parts in motion.

If it is SBC pushing issue....before deadline this is exactly what SBC is doing.....if they decline or do not vote to go SBC I think we make another offer very soon or is it dead for now
