I can definitely see why the Sun Belt wants New Mexico State basketball. But why didn't it already happen?

I think NMSU wanted an all-sports invite but the eastern schools rejected them and want to get a travel partner for App State.

NMSU was not offered an all sports invite. They wanted it but all the Belt offered last year was football only. If JMU and Missouri St. accept all sports invites NMSU would be very happy because their all sports invite will be coming, probably in 2 years after Idaho leaves the Belt.

This plan to being in Missouri St. and JMU in all sports and expel Idaho and bring in NMSU in all sports is a compromise -- the eastern and western schools get something they want.

Now we wait to see if JMU and Missouri St. will accept.

I apologize if I'm wrong, but I remember reading on the JMU board that during one of his talking tours he stated and I paraphrase the teams we would be playing are no better than the current teams we play. I do find it's safe to say that IF JMU accepts the invite they come in to the SB with their nose pinched.

The former Ga. Southern AD referred to the Sun Belt at one point as a "bush league that we would have no interest in." Things changed. Our new AD is very excited for us to be a member.

I really believe JMU fans would be excited about playing football games vs. Sun Belt schools.

It would be like the FCS playoffs every Saturday of the week...

Please, JMU all but accepted two weeks ago when UMass told MAC bye and the MAC told JMU they were staying at 12. Friday's vote BOT at JMU is a formality. I heard a JMU reporter in know on the radio two weeks ago that JMU would be "following App State and accepting the offer on the table" or something to that effect. It sounded like speculation at the time, but maybe it wasn't.

Let's see a quote. At no point did Alger say anything regarding a specific conference. Did he make some generalized comments regarding some potential conferences? Yes.

Ha, so who do you think he's referring to? the SEC? I asked that in all seriousness. Who was he referring to?

The rumor is that schools in the east, led by WKU didn't want NMSU for all sports. That was before App and GS were in, and now WKU is out. From what I've heard on the GS end, NMSU all-sports would be a go now.

That stands to reason. With a pod setup, New Mexico State would be a once-every-two-years trip for the easternmost schools.

He said something like that to the faculty senate. Academically, the CAA is probably a top 5-6 conference, so keep in mind the audience when assessing that statement.

Apparently for JMU to get an invite the western schools insisted on Missouri St. getting an invite too. This is a compromise that both sides can live with. I hope it happens.

Those are from JMU's football beat reporter.

Georgia Southern had "no invite" until the press conference. Just saying.

And technically our comment from administrators is that we 'have still not received an offer'
