They would be good for the conference but hearing how superior they are and that the CAA is better than the SBC is a bit much. It is bad enough when you hear that garbage from CUSA or MAC fans.

Everyone had that attitude but it gets changed once they see its not the conference they once thought it was.
Yeah, I know they will change their tune once they experience what the SBC has to offer and the atmosphere for football games in particular but getting through this part is annoying.

OK, NOW tweets are reliable sources since they say what folks want to hear. Me, still cautiously waiting,

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...

Yep, and then they get to a bowl game and continue the grand tradition of beating a MAC team that every G5 conference seems to enjoy.

If it means getting MSU and NMSU I'll take JMU or Liberty

I hope this works out. In football that would be 2014 (this year): 11 schools for football 2015: 13 schools for football with Missouri St. and JMU transitioning/ Ga. Southern and App. St. would be full members 2016: 12 football schools with Idaho released/ All schools full FBS and eligible for bowls.

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?

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

So are you saying NMSU has a UMASS clause.

No. There is no exit clause. Just a clause that allows us to add all sports should we choose to. There is zero chance NMSU would turn down such an invite.

Remember, the SBC has always maintained a strong relationship with NMSU. Its not something we're going to just give up.

SBC East: JMU, EKU, App State, Georgia St, Georgia So, Troy

SBC West: USA, ULL, ULM, Arkansas St, Missouri St, Tx State


RE: Reports out of missouri saying JMU and MSU recieved invite - GaSoEagle - 04-09-2014 10:10 PM

Under this scenario NMSU would be brought in as an all sports member in 2016-17 although I guess it could be done in 2015-16
