One poster basically said accept us in football only and let us see after 2-3 years if you're good enough for all of our sports. The SB is sometimes referred to as the Slum belt. This post has nothing to do with Liberty, but all you JMU lovers are getting exactly what you deserve by clamoring for them to join. JMU is a fine school, but they have the attitude of Alabama fans in football with the trophy case of Ga. State.

Like you said, JMU is a fine school. I don't view them as superior to any other Sun Belt school but I do view them as much more of an asset to the conference than Liberty, EKU, Lamar, etc. Who cares what a bunch of message board posters say...it's about the greater good! JMU will improve that.

To me the following league rivals any G5 conference:


WEST:

- Arkansas State

- Louisiana

- Missouri State

- New Mexico State

- Texas State

- ULM



EAST:

- Appalachian State

- Georgia Southern

- Georgia State

- James Madison

- South Alabama

- Troy

I like this lineup a lot, and think it can far surpass the MAC and CUSA, but I understand the occasional bitterness from some of the ULL folks when you consider over half this possible league was FCS four years ago.
I don't think it matters. If done correctly, an FCS moveup can be almosst immediately competitive. ULL and the rest of us got our butts kicked by Troy for several years following their move to FBS. At stAte, we made bad decisions and took a decade to figure it out after moving back up to FBS.

Put the resources into it, hire the right people and schedule well and most of the recent FCS move ups can be successful.
