If JMU were actively engaged with the MAC, they would have had some awareness of the MAC's action and even if the MAC held some fantastic hope of acceptance, the probability would be that if the Sun Belt is in active pursuit of JMU that the Sun Belt would have dashed that for JMU by giving indication that UMass was in active pursuit of Sun Belt membership thereby revealing UMass's choice.
The evidence strongly suggests the smoke has merely been hot air.

Though JMU's thinking may have not changed 'suddenly', the fact that UMass was being expelled (at whatever point they made the decision not to join the MAC) did and does put pressure on JMU to fish or cut bait.

If my math is right, there are 4 schools vying for one Sun Belt FBS slot; JMU, Missouri St., UMass and Liberty. That's a lot of suitors for one belle.

Question. Why would the Sun Belt go to 13 by inviting both JMU and Missouri St.?

220. They do a great job with the NHL, MLS, and Premier League.

What is the Premier League ?

The highest level of competition for British soccer. Teams like Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton compete in this league.

Because Idaho isn't a long-term solution.

Because they might want to force Idaho out?

Still say Coach Moore saw how upset Micky the Mouth was, and since he is such a good guy and they were friends, he called the dogs off the second half. Wished they had Matthew's comment before the game that was on TV....talking @ App State he was saying, "Who are these guy, who are they.. (reference to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kind). Will take our record over JMU anytime, but that game will be remember forever by both sides. As well as the game the year before where we beat you guys.
Oh, yeah...remember, I hate you guys, and I hate purple streamers.

Yeah, unless the culture of the Sun Belt has changed in the last year; we/they just don't do that.

Top to bottom I think it's more competitive than La Liga. Atletico, Real and Barcelona are playing a different level of soccer than anyone else there.

BPL down the stretch this season is going to be very interesting.

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

What is #sgf ?

Springfield

Having a hard time finding anything close that quote on that Twitter. This is what I see

" Bear Boulevard ‏@BearBoulevard 13h

@thejordanburton seems they're trying to add #MSUBears and JMU, kick out Idaho, add NMSU all sports to get to a solid 14.

@thejordanburton Reports are that the western Sun Belt schools won't agree to add only an Eastern member unless they also add MSU"
