Don't look for any JMU move (or lack of a move) until late May. With spring sports being this close to being over, it wouldn't make much sense to announce before then and lock out the sports from competing for a conference title. I assume the Sun Belt or any other conference that really wanted JMU would be fine waiting until then for an announcement.

gosh if we accept a common sense answer like that we might stop all the speculation......but it does make sense.

Yea, I don't see any announcement coming until mid-May. The fact that the Sun Belt hasn't moved forward with other options means one of three things

1) JMU really will take the bid and is just waiting for the end of the CAA schedule
2) JMU has not turned down the bid from the Sun Belt and is still evaluating (JMU is really good at that) while begging the MAC to take them (which is a very dangerous game for JMU if they really want FBS)
3) JMU has a bid from the MAC and is awaiting the end of the CAA schedule to notify the CAA and the Sun Belt (I'd be surprised if the MAC kicked out UMass to take JMU as a 13th of 13th member)
4) There is no consensus to add Liberty (possible even if JMU turns the Belt down)

When does baseball and softball end?

If JMU is that cautious, could they operate effectively making FBS conference decisions?
Seems like we are in a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid movie ... Who are those people?

Or the Sun Belt has decided to just forget JMU and go with 11 until Idaho can be exited and we have 10 then.

Softball ends May 7th.

Baseball ends May 21st.

I don't expect JMU to participate in the baseball tournament anyway this year because our team is a train wreck and only the top 6 seeds play in the tournament.

So by May 15th or so, if there's no press conference scheduled and no BOV meeting scheduled, we can probably just move on I suppose.

Does anyone know when the Sun Belt's meetings are this year? I believe they were May 21-23 last year so I assume it'll be around the same time. I have to believe that an actual vote on a new member will take place then.

Note: Today's game with Mercer was canceled. Guess we can count them out too.
