You are correct. I guess the real question then is whether Missouri St. and JMU are ready to join the Sun Belt.

JMU cant do anything until after the CAA baseball tournament.

Agreed, but as of today from a full time employee in their athletic dept, they are not even discussing it tomorrow and the plan is to wait. Could that change between now and June 1, absolutely but as of today the plan is to wait on the MAC

I have way better connections inside JMU. You are full if it.

It's been discussed. It will be discussed. Stop pimping and spreading misinformation in a hopeless attempt to somehow affect the upcoming change.

Don't be butthurt because I am friends with one of your athletic staff members...

For all he knows, you are making it up. Lets not get into "my source can beat up your source" arguments here please.

When was this authority granted? If it was recently, then that is very interesting.

I don't get the purpose of making something up. You make something up you look like an idiot later.

Faculty at schools can be very strange creatures that can sometimes unintentionally undermine their own employer. (See Liberty Law Professor)

Heck, its everywhere. A couple of years ago, UCA's faculty actually voted in a faculty senate meeting to drop the Bears to D2. The Senate had no actual power over the issue, and they were generally laughed at...but they felt they needed to make their opinion known...so they did. And UCA got negative press for it, despite the fact there was no chance they would ever go back to D2.

And UMass faculty did so.

And if you go back, remember that the faculty at AState went to the Board of Trustees demanding football be dropped back when Col Klink was on the Board and cited the amount of money that would be saved and he countered by asking if they had factored in the million plus in contract penalties for failing to play contracted games, the impact of potentially needing to seek another league, the expectation of fans that any "savings" be expended to improve other sports. They gave up and sulked away.

Ah, we've been there. One of our professors even had a piece published in Slate (or HuffPo) claiming that sexual assaults on campus will increase with a move to FBS...I literally can't make this up.

I saw that but didn't pay any attention to what school it was.

Maybe Commissioner Benson will say something this weekend that gives hint of what is going on. He is supposed to be in Statesboro tomorrow and will be at our Spring game on Saturday and attend the baseball game late Saturday afternoon with our AD. I have no doubt either during the football game (maybe at half) or during the baseball game he will be interviewed by our radio people.

Have you met SHWISH?

Or for that matter, Campaign4Liberty?

Being wrong hasn't stopped them.

Nobody at JMU has said ANYTHING about the belt publicly/on the record. There have been numerous liberty and ODU fans spouting BS. Welcome to the club.

If folks said people said something how hard is it to find quotes?

There are plenty of people making up their own facts about Liberty in which they look like idiots now. Then there are some Liberty people who happen to be campaigning that looked like idiots from the start. Every fan base has them.
