South Alabama is a founding member and has been a member fifteen years longer than Arkansas State and Louisiana.

Yeah but football drives the bus and they are newborns in that realm.

I don't really think the distinction is necessary, running a football program is not that much different and it's not like it's the basketball and softball coaches running the program, they have football people running their football program. USA is the old guard of the SBC.

There is a huge distinction, in total percentage of cost towards your budget. The football operational budget is the largest expense for most FBS programs. They were running an athletic program that didn't have football, similar to Denver and ULAR. Old guard, but no football.

Did not mean to slight any school but just was interested in how the longer standing members of the Belt would view bringing in UMass as a football-only school.

Maybe you missed it, but he said football only. South Alabama is not a founding member in football. That honor goes to UL, ASU and Troy.

Troy was not a founding football member. ULM is

Don't remind me! LOL!!!!

No, even the idea of adding them as a football only member is preposterous. If they want in the Sun Belt then they must be a full sports member. We want to add the best all around program that is available. Not just an also ran football program that couldn't cut it in the MAC where they are geographically a fit.
