State flagship in MA doesn't beat anything.

If the Sun Belt accepts them for football only, they are basically announcing that they are giving up on ever being anything other than a joke.

Totally agree. The combo of Idaho and Umass for FB only would be a huge logistical and financial mess. Makes zero sense whether I'm a Liberty fan or an App fan.

You are an App State fan now....who knew.
Wouldn't you like it if the SBC took UMass and the MAC took JMU and their travel partner Liberty University?

This just erases everything I've said. Can't believe we would even consider UMASS! The Troy poster os correct that UMASS may be in the lead now.

...that happened about 3 minutes past when Benson mentioned Liberty for a third straight year. 05-stirthepot

What makes this crazy if it happens is the geography, not the school

RE: UMass leaving MAC.
Just to clear things up about how this works:

In UMass' contract with the MAC, there is a clause stating that the MAC could invite UMass to join for all sports. If they accept, then great. If not, they must leave entirely, within two years.

So why would the MAC shake up the status quo like this unless they had another all-sports member about to join?

UMass as football only is a terrible decision. Way out of the footprint, they bring a nothing recruiting area, play in a huge NFL stadium which will be more than half empty, especially since no one in Massachusetts cares about seeing teams from Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, etc, not named LSU, Bama, or Arkansas at least.

Let them pray they get an invite to the AAC or drop back down to FCS.

RE: UMass leaving MAC.
We still don't NEED to add if the ACC gets their proposal met by the NCAA to have divisional championship games, which would mean we could hold a championship game without 12 members. I wonder if UMASS would have the votes and if NMSU has the full-member votes now that WKU is leaving...
