Take a few minutes
Savor the situation.

Just a short time ago we were expanding in survival mode trying to plug holes.

Now we have more schools wanting in than spots we are willing to dole out.

We can literally add any random school of our choosing without concern over "more mouths to feed". The worst case scenario is adding someone it being revenue neutral and more likely it is revenue positive.

The only pressure we have to move is to get the boost of a new member in 2015 rather than a later date.

It's a nice place to be. No need to rush it.

The Salad Days often go unappreciated while they are occurring.

It is nice to see a positive thread about the conference. I am really looking forward to this summer when APP STATE is official.

Each fan wants what is best for there school when it comes to sports.

From my view point the Sun Belt conference is the best conference that Georgia Southern has ever been associated with. Also I feel that the Sun Belt is the best from top to bottom conference outside of the P5. We just have not seen it yet in the Bowl & TV dollas yet.

A voice of reason. Thank you very much.

Nice to see something positive. Having watched the WAC meltdown and wondering if we'd get tossed a life preserver, I'm feeling pretty good about the conference's situation. Sun Belt has turned out to be a fine conference. Just need to get the right schools on board and move forward.

No candidates guarantee a two bid conference or help football rising together is the answer.

St. Mary's improving turned the WCC into a two bid conference.
Adding BYU helped but it's still a two bid conference.



I think the SBC has great potential regardless of who is added.

There are a bunch of fans wanting their school to move? But the only University publicly stating they want to is us? Even JMU seems to be on the fence, they have the attitude, what's worse, staying FCS or getting stuck in the SB for 5 years.
