When there were MAC rumors a few months ago the same thing happened as JMU posters came out of the woodwork to complain about the MAC. I'm sure the same thing would happen with CUSA as well. There just isn't a clear attractive choice that excites the whole JMU fanbase. The fact is though that most over on the JMU boards would be happy with a Sun Belt invite.

Probably true of most schools concerning many potential moves.

Not all though

Any JMU fan can ask Texas St, APP, or Georgia Southern fans about the excitement of looking at a full FBS schedule as apposed to an FCS schedule. Being FBS lets you schedule games no FCS team can. I love to read the post from App and Georgia Southern fans talking about home and home deals with other FBS teams.

JMU should be happy the Sun Belt is offering them a chance to play at the highest level in college football. JMU can win all the FCS titles they want and less than 30% of college football fans will know who they are. JMU will have more games on national TV in one season in the Belt than 5 years of in the FCS. Heck Georgia Southern has already gotten national TV games at home there first season in the Belt. One of those TV games is against App St who also will be playing there first season of FBS in the Belt.

Again, I don't think any official invite will be issued until after the May meetings. Everything now is vetting and negotiations. Is SBC interested in JMU? most likely. Is JMU interested in SBC? who knows, but I still lean toward no. I mean, just look at Stoss' tweets. he even goes as far as to say that "none of these options are super attractive".

So again, who knows for real what on earth is happening.

I agree that it is extremely difficult to know exactly what is happening.

It seems to me that Stoss hasn't been much of a source on any of this recently anyway. According to the title of the thread, reports were coming out of Missouri. I don't recall anyone naming an exact source from Missouri.

Personally, I'd like it if JMU accepted an invite (if one comes). I was there when JMU was a I-AA independent. We played Ga. Southern almost every year (I think we played App.St. often as well at that time). Renewing series with Ga. Southern and App. St. would be great!

Well, regarding TV, we had 3 on national TV last year, and over 5 since 2012.

But, your point stands. FCS is not followed outside of FCS schools.

Were those TV games on ESPN last year? I watch college football all day every Saturday and not once did I see an JMU game. When I say national TV, I means a Thursday night game on ESPN against another FBS team during primetime!

I'm still very wary of anything to do with Missouri State and the Belt ... could be very wrong, but I'd be surprised.

National on NBC Sports on Saturdays. Some primetime included, but 2nd rate network.

That's not national. That's regional. I'm talking the only game on that night during primetime hours on ESPN. You'll learn the difference when you actually move to FBS.
