Also better for Ark State and others for travel. Liberty is better than Presbyterian and VMI if that lessens the blow any. Liberty just doesn't have the votes. There are a few schools that no matter how desperate we are for a 12th will never vote for LU.

You heard it here folks. Liberty has no chance at all. This guy knows his stuff. I'm afraid I have to leave now.

Whatever?!

Wow that easy....um.... bye I guess.

Wow. If we knew it'd be that easy, we would've said that months ago!

After reading the JMU board I'm amazed at the love fest going on between most of the posters here and JMU. One poster basically said accept us in football only and let us see after 2-3 years if you're good enough for all of our sports. The SB is sometimes referred to as the Slum belt. This post has nothing to do with Liberty, but all you JMU lovers are getting exactly what you deserve by clamoring for them to join. JMU is a fine school, but they have the attitude of Alabama fans in football with the trophy case of Ga. State.

So we have Liberty fans cherry picking comments again. You neglected to mention the majority of positive SBC comments.

Then again, you have an agenda....

Like you said, JMU is a fine school. I don't view them as superior to any other Sun Belt school but I do view them as much more of an asset to the conference than Liberty, EKU, Lamar, etc. Who cares what a bunch of message board posters say...it's about the greater good! JMU will improve that.

To me the following league rivals any G5 conference:


WEST:

- Arkansas State

- Louisiana

- Missouri State

- New Mexico State

- Texas State

- ULM



EAST:

- Appalachian State

- Georgia Southern

- Georgia State

- James Madison

- South Alabama

- Troy

They are linked to us because they've openly said they want an SBC invite.

Thing is...they are 2-3 years behind the rest of us. Just getting lights on your baseball field is not a good sign if you want to play in one of the better baseball leagues in the country. Just one example of work that has to be done.
Well does that mean you won't take EKU b/c they're 2-3 behind if JMU says no and you'll settle for Liberty?

I could see the SB saying "no" to everyone if their first two choices are not available and simply use UMass like Idaho---A temporary renewable rental until a better option is available.

I don't have the venom for Liberty that some here do, but dude do y'all really think you can bash someone else's trophy case? Liberty's in empty except for the dust.....

Also a pretty likely scenario.

Sign me up. I'm not sure how any of our fans can claim the CAA is better than this. The Sun Belt knows the geographic foot print is quite large, they'll schedule olympic sports as to minimize travel expenses for all schools.

It's really not that JMU is so TERRIBLY WANTED... It's really just illustrating how little some folks want Liberty.

Even though I think JMU would be a fine addition, I'm not in love with having them. But if it's a choice of JMU or Liberty... Well, that's a no brainer to me.

Even the rich a$$ pac-12 schedules their games so that if you travel to say Washington or Oregon that you play both in conference state schools while there.
