I'm betting MSU and JMU turn down the invite then the SBC moves on to Liberty. Sounds like the SBC is ready to get to 12.

Reports are saying that Missouri State and JMU have been invited to the Sun Belt Conference. Could FBS football be coming to #sgf soon?

Not sure why I let myself get excited by a "source" like this... This account only has 86 followers and yet I still fall hook line and sinker.

I don't do tweeter. Just the sound of the word tweets pisses me off.

This would be the best possible case scenario. Then I assume Idaho would be on their way out as soon as MSU and JMU are aboard. This is almost too perfect to be true.

Would an official invite ever be issued if there was a chance it would be turned down?

If I were the Grand Mufti of the Belt, I'd have at least a verbal agreement in my back pocket before I'd ever issue an official invite.

But that's just me.

That's my thought process. Why put an invite out there if there was a chance it would be turned down? It would make conference look really bad. There's got to be a verbal agreement of some sort.

Yeah, but remember its King Karl we are talking about.

The same guy who created a plan to bring BYU back into the WAC fold and poach a couple of schools from the MWC only to have the MWC say, "How cute... we'll just take Nevada and Fresno and call it day."

I shouldn't complain, that's how we got our spot in the WAC, but he had egg on his face.

JMU and MSU have been dragging the SBC along holding a spot open while hoping a better offer would materialize. The SBC is tired of waiting so they are throwing an official invite in their lap. Now the administration will have to answer to their fans if they decline it. No more hiding and stalling for JMU and MSU. It's go time.

There really is no egg to be had here.

What's Liberty going to do, say no because we asked someone else to dance first? They will accept no matter what. This puts the ball in MSU and JMU's court. They accept now or deal with their own fallout.

Maybe but it could be that JMU is expected to say no and MSU yes meaning we still only go to 12 but the conference can still say they tried to get that eastern team to match with App but it failed.
