Sun Belt Conference votes to expand
Our AD, T. Kleinlein, has a monthly segment when he answers questions about Ga. Southern athletics. A question was asked today about the Sun Belt meetings in New Orleans a week or so ago.

He said the conference has voted to expand to add a 12th fb playing school. He said a 12th school would help the conference not only in having a championship game but also in all the olympic sports in reducing travel also. He said conference was in process right now of identifying potential members for the conference.

So maybe I jumped the gun a little by saying earlier that there would be no expansion by June 1. Our AD did not say we would expand by then but he clearly says expansion is going to occur and the conference has voted to add a 12th FB playing school.

Not really any news.

It's pretty obvious we are going to expand to 12 eventually. When is the question.

I'm not sure how obvious. There were several people on this board saying the SBC doesn't need to expand and have a Championship game. There's a whole thread about it.

Yep. We know now we are evaluating schools and we are going to 12. The only question is whether it will be before June 1 of this year. I think if we don't add a 12th this year it is almost a given that we will before next year.

The main thing out of this is that the football school will be oly as well. No mention of another non football to get NMSU, add NMSU alone, or add a football only and then the NMSU oly.

I think if JMU would have been willing to join last year we probably would have 12. Fast forward a year later and I can see the Sun Belt moving on past JMU if they still don't want to join.
