So when will MSU announce they are joining? I would like to watch that presser.

Not at all saying JMU isn't coming, because that's certainly the way it looks at this point.

What I can say for 100% certainty is that Stoss doesn't know anything. I'm not sure what he does all day, but he sure isn't keeping up with this stuff or digging up info.

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'

And they have a very big smile on there face when they say it. This is the same reaction Georgia Southern fans got from Keel and TK right up to the press conference to announce the move to the Sun Belt last year.

There was from what I understand big-time opposition to Idaho but based on the 12 team idea they were added for football. This "exit clause" was put in at the insistence of the Sun Belt. Idaho was in no position not to take ANY offer they could get to play fb in the Belt.

Just so I can sleep at night, nmsu doesn't have agreement like this right?

Stoss has been an empty suit since Mike Barber left. Talk about contrast.

As I've stated before, JMU would be more appealing but I'd just as soon take Liberty with MSU and NMSU just because they on surface ACT like they are greatful, eager, and want to be a part of our conference. To me that carries a ton of weight.

There is no exit agreement with NMSU to my knowledge.

Everyone had that attitude but it gets changed once they see its not the conference they once thought it was.

I realize that every fanbase has their poor sports and obnoxious element but I really detest negativity and arrogance. I am a bit too optimistic but it beats the alternative in my opinion.

The SBC is as good as CUSA or the MAC and fans should focus on what their school can do to improve while being positive about their conference.

No. But there is a clause to allow us the opportunity to invite all sports.
