We need a few more bowls. I really hope the talk of a bowl in Little Rock comes to fruition for selfish reasons.

Something north of about the I-20 corridor would make sense. LR would be a prime candidate because there isn't currently a bowl there, and they have a stadium to host one.

RE: Karl Benson interview from today about realignment
This is not about Liberty. I understand that ship has sailed. I do love the realignment talk though. Just keep this in mind for all you JMU backers. JMU has about as much in common with the Sunbelt as Harvard does. They're an northern alumni school and I just can't see their administration lowering themselves to join the SB. Missouri State is a much better option in my opinion. They're going to have to get their attendance up for football. I think they only averaged around 8,000 last year.

I have a hard time believing that if JMU and Missouri State both called and said we want in that there would be much hesitation in adding both and figuring out how to make 13 work later.

About 70% of our alums are Virginians. Now, I fully understand that some of ya'll consider VA to be the North, but I'll fight you over it 05-nono 03-nutkick

75,000 alums live in the South (VA to FL and over to TX)...83,000 live south of the Mason Dixon line. That is out of a total of 110,000 alumni.

Replace WKU with JMU in the east. Idaho goes and does their thing elsewhere. Replace them with Missouri State in the west. Wouldn't that work?

That's an easy fix. Bye bye Idaho.

Virginia is Southern. Anyone who says otherwise has never been there. Most of the Civil War was fought on Virginia's soil. Only Yankee part of Virginia are the DC suburbs.

For football only Idaho is just one trip every other year. No big deal.
