The "insane money" you speak of is money from the B.E.A.R. fee that was passed by the students. That is the additional fee of $50 per semester per student to fund improvements in the athletic facilities. That is not getting you FBS ready.

The state of Missouri like many other states is not increasing funding to universities. You are not going to be able to get additional funding from the state to move up to FBS. You are going to need rich donors who feel that spending their money on an FBS move to the Sun Belt is money well spent. Good luck with that.

I don't hate MSU, I just don't believe there is a stealth FBS movement campaign coming from the President's office. I believe your President is working hard to find funding for campus improvements. I just don't believe FBS football is one of those campus improvements for him.

Strangely reminiscent of how many on our board were complaining about TXST, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, and UTSA a couple of years ago.

Texas State didn't even have a good basketball or football program when they made the move.

And lets not even get started on Georgia State.

Missouri State makes the most sense and has the largest potential. If they weren't buried in the SW corner of Missouri (travel-wise), then I'd love to see them in the MAC. In my eyes, MO State is pretty comparable to JMU. MO State has better basketball, JMU has better football - both have room to grow and plenty of potential. JMU holds a slight edge, but Mo State would be fully committed in for the long haul where JMU will always be looking for the mythical eastern conference.

You need to check your vision. It is not even close:

1. JMU has a $34 million athletic budget. Missouri State is at $14 million.
2. Missouri State has not been to the FCS playoffs since 1990. JMU has been there 9 times in that period, winning the national championship in 2004.
3. JMU had an average football attendance of 21,011 per game last season. Missouri State averaged 8,700.
4. JMU has an FBS ready football facility that seats 25,000. Missouri State has an older facility that seats 16,600 and is not FBS ready.
5. JMU is ranked in Forbes Best Colleges at #168. Missouri State is ranked at #526. That is important to the Presidents.

I could add that the population growth and the FBS talent favors the state of Virginia and JMU. If you are in an olympic sports league, then maybe Missouri State is the better option. If your in an FBS league, Missouri State is not close to being ready. They are a mediocre FCS program that lacks the money to move up. That is not the kind of program the SBC needs.

I would pick JMU over us as well, but you don't add us for right now, you add us for our potential.

These last 10-15 years have been the W O R S T athletically for MSU. It's no wonder our numbers are low. But with the insane money we are pumping into facilities, I don't doubt that we will get better.

But, keep hating.

Why not wait to see if Missouri State reaches their potential? They aren't going anywhere.

BS you don't hate us, you've been one of the only people that have been against MSU since the beginning.

The only thing I can guess about the invitation of Texas State was the desire to be in the state of Texas and we were technically already FBS.

athletic budgets aren't a straight comparison as they are calculated differently.

older facility? its under construction.

you are adding us for our basketball, not for our football and our program is miles ahead of any hoops program in the SBC. Our arena destroys yours, our history destroys yours, and our attendance destroys yours(we just had what we considered a bad year for attendance and its still triple your schools.
keep hating.

Your basketball program is 47-51 over the past three seasons. How is that "miles ahead of any hoops program in the SBC"? You have an inflated opinion of your basketball program based on playing in the MVC. You lose to a bad Loyola team on the road by 32 and beat a bad Liberty team by 2 at home and I am supposed to believe you guys would be the best hoops program in the SBC?

I believe App's AD Charlie Cobb made similar statements. He was stuck on CUSA, but here we are in the Belt. If JMU doesn't have anywhere else to go, they will join too.
