Exactly. so why add another school that would be just as bad and brings another crap team.

Wanted it so that people could feel free to vote without repercussions or other remarks. Will send you the name if they agree.

Personally, I'd love to drop: Idaho and New Mexico State and add: James Madison, Liberty and Missouri State, not that I expect that this will happen.

Yelp. Would be good if our system worked that way.
Would still get non-SBC votes regardless.

The real question seems to coming down to whether the 11 schools think it is important enough to get a championship game to invite UMass or Liberty or whether they are happy to just stay at 11 with no championship game.

The proposed bill to allow a championship game regardless of number
in the conference may have an impact also.

umass as a football only does not add a huge travel increase to budgets. at most that means one away game for football every two years. teams in the west one trip every four years.

UMass has to have a place to move to. It's imperative to keep their
football program alive in the FBS. We could probably get a lot of
home and home basketball games in return if that's what the SBC
presidents want.
But they may be thinking more long term and want an all sports school.
Some of their moves may have been considered a car wreck.

Looks like 16 Falwell U fans voted. This poll isn't very telling when all the Liberty spammers have a vote.
