It clearly states that the agreement is for four years, which I'm pretty sure means the Vandals will be in the SBC at least through the '17-'18 season. I think the part that says the agreement can be extended or "terminated" after the '15-'16 season means that there can be a decision at that point to either extend the agreement beyond four years or terminate it at four years. I doubt that it means the agreement can be terminated after only two years.

So, if offers are going out to both JMU and MSU, I'm guessing the JMU offer is for all sports and the MSU offer is for non-football sports, with an option for MSU to begin a transition to FBS in '16-'17 and complete it in '18-'19 when Idaho can be replaced.

Having said this, I'm nonetheless skeptical of these reports because of the impact of adding both JMU and MSU on non-football divisional alignment. If both schools are invited, the SBC will have 13 members for non-football sports, which isn't workable. NMSU can be upgraded to full membership to balance the divisions, but that means the Louisiana schools will have to play in separate divisions, which doesn't make sense. My prediction is still just one addition to the conference, in the east, with the choice coming down to JMU (preferred), Liberty (fallback), or EKU (dark horse).

How long til y'all take Idaho back and the circle is complete again? You can add Montana for balance.
