JMU is a fine school, but they have the attitude of Alabama fans in football with the trophy case of Ga. State.

hunh. A liberty guy lying. Isn't that grounds for expulsion or something? He said "we have obvious hesitation about joining for all sports, why not let us join for football and show us what you got?" Not exactly see if you're good enough for all our sports.

We clearly DO have some hesitation about joining for all sports, other concerns likely as well. mostly its the geography of the whole situation and having to send the sports other than football and perhaps M/W Bball all over the Country. To that concern, none of the other "possible" conferences is a whole lot easier or better, though.

Point being, easing us in with a ftball only invite might make the logistics and finances easier for our clearly (little c) conservative Admin to swallow. Go from there. If it turns out to be a good fit, then great, we move all in. It's not like there aren't football only AND Non-football schools already in the Belt.

Oh, and you may want to check that Trophy case before you comment further.

I don't think a football only invite is going to be in the cards for anyone this round.

I think in general, folks do not like them (can't say I blame them).

Can we PLEASE leave both of these schools in FCS?

So basically you are saying we would be better off going with Missouri State or Eastern Kentucky or Liberty; other words someone that actually want to be with us. Is that what you are saying?


RE: Reports out of missouri saying JMU and MSU recieved invite - JMUDunk - 04-10-2014 02:51 PM

What the hell are either on of you talking about?

I'm talking about how I, I, think it might be easier for the Admin at JMU to get us where we, as fans, want to go- FBS. Why is that so tough?

Do we have to LOVE all that is the joy and glory of trotting our tennis teams to Louisiana and Texas, in order for us to make the move? It's NOT a knock on anyone or any school or anything else.

I'm talking about easing into what is the biggest decision THIS school has made since deciding to go Co-ed. just looking for an entree for us, no more, no less.

Geeezus people, thin skinned much?

He might be saying that, but that's the problem with message boards, assuming that some very vocal fans speak for an entire fan base. I'm sure I could find a large number of JMU fans who agree with him. I'm sure I could find a large number of JMU fans who disagree and would enthusiastically welcome a Sun Belt invite.

I'm also sure that I could get every JMU fan to agree that a Liberty fan should not be making any comments comparing JMU's trophy case to Georgia State's (sorry Ga.St. fans...).

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.....

Last year we dominated the conference. I know it's Big South, but you can only win the conference you play in.

The George F. “Buddy” Sasser Cup Trophy (usually just called the Sasser Cup) is a US trophy awarded annually to the top athletic program in the Big South Conference. Formally called The Commissioner's Cup, it was renamed The Sasser Cup after former Commissioner George F. "Buddy" Sasser.
1997-98 - Liberty
1998-99 - Liberty
1999-00 - Liberty
2000-01 - Coastal Carolina
2001-02 - Liberty
2002-03 - Liberty
2003-04 - Coastal Carolina
2004-05 - Coastal Carolina
2005-06 - Coastal Carolina
2006-07 - Coastal Carolina
2007-08 - Liberty
2008-09 - Liberty
2009-10 - Liberty
2010-11 - Liberty
2011-12 - Liberty
2012-13 - Liberty

So our trophy case isn't exactly gathering dust.

FTR, I don't see it coming either. Just positing an idea that I, and a few others, think would get us moving a little faster, or at all, as a matter of fact.

I can't blame them either. I understand the need in certain instances, but in an ideal world these effing conferences would be more tightly aligned "pods" geographically as much as possible. Some of this insanity about flying about in all directions multiple times a year for non-revenue sports could be ceased to some extent.

That was, really, all that was being said.
