To tell you the truth I don't care which team we have, La. Tech or ULM. I think either team would be a good fit for the SunBelt. La. Tech has had a stronger football program, but I don't know if they'll drop down to the SBC.

I am so glad to see a more regional conference. No trips to Denver and NMSU definitely is a plus to all this. It is nice to also get a balanced 12 team conference instead of 11. I am beginning to feel good about the Sun Belt.

Your right Jeff, no matter which team (ULM or LaTech) ends up being the 12th member, all of us will be better off when this comes to pass. I really like the look of the travel partner situation.

No more trips to Denver! Yes! I think this SBC travel plans will definitely help our sports teams make easier trips and don't have to travel for a long distance to play some games.

Rumor is Denver will be finding a new home, more regionally. Nothing official though.


Western Kentucky WILL go 1-A. It's just a matter of when. It is not an easy process. Just look at the school in Florida that jumped too quickly. Every duck has to be in a row. Right now Kentucky is having budget problems, so now isn't the time. WKU had to give back almost 6 million dollars to the state that it had already budgeted and spent half of for this fiscal year. WKU will also have lots of resistance from university of louisville and university of kentucky.

WKU is getting ready to build a new parking structure next to the stadium. WKU is building a new training facility. The facility was going to be on the other sideline (we have a onesided stadium) but now they are moving it to another site, so that they will be open to build the other side. Yet another clue. It won't be in the next 2 years probably, I am thinking 5-6 years.. but that is just me.

awesome, you guys have been very strong in I-AA so a move I figured would be in the near future. Where would Denver be going? Big Sky maybe?? I know they have a no football so they could just about go to any mid-major conference.
