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.

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!

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

Oh, I always switch off NBCSN after the Premier League game.

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.

NBCSN is most certainly a national sports network.

The play devil's advocate here, while I agree that ESPNU games are more "national" in prestige, NBC Sports reaches more households 77.7M - 75M.

However, no clue what the ratings comparison is and really don't feel like looking for it.

Oh Please let them do the right thing. No more monitoring the situation!!!!!!! I want SBC soooo bad. Lots of old embers to kick around and start the flames again.

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. Souther and App. St. would be great!

Yes it would. I was a student when GSC was playing independent football as well. Loved the games vs. JMU and EKU in those days. Quality football.

Nope, NBCSN is national. Like a poster said before, it reaches more homes than ESPNU does. I've had three different cable companies in the last three years in two different cities and they've all had NBCSN.

I think you are thinking of Comcast Sports Net which is affiliated with NBC, but has regional channels. I.e. CSN Baltimore, CSN Philly, CSN New England just to name a few.

Hey App fans....need to re-spark this pronto. The tailgate before the game was legendary, and the game was amazing.

While I like the news, I'm not gonna celebrate dodging a bullet until pen is to paper.

This whole thing is so fluid right now, come this time tomorrow it wouldn't surprise me to have Montana & Montana State on the "invited" list.
