RE: Best Case
I am skeptical of any projected outcome that involves NMSU all-sports. West Virginia has more Big XII teams within less than 1000 miles than NMSU would in the Sun Belt

RE: Best Case
In this order.

Add JMU all sports best.
Add UMASS football only until JUM is ready.
Add Missouri State all sports.
Add EKU all sports.
Add Jax State all sports.


Have yet to envision a good outcome involving that school in Lynchburg.

I think JMU has made it clear they are not coming to the Sun Belt as an all-sports member.

RE: Best Case
The Sun Belt didn't promise App Liberty. They promised them that they'd try to find a close partner. The Belt has tried with JMU. That obligation is done.


Give them some of Idaho's travel money and be done with it.

1. Add Missouri State and get this coveted school...Football can wait until 2015.

2. Add New Mexico State's oly sports

3. Add Liberty...as they may now have the votes.

4. Add Massachusetts as football only.

Football

East

Appalachian State
Georgia Southern
Georgia State
Liberty
*Massachusetts
South Alabama
Troy

West

Arkansas State
*Idaho
Louisiana Lafayette
Louisiana Monroe
Missouri State (2015)
New Mexico State
Texas State

Olympic Sports

Appalachian State
Arkansas State
Arkansas Little Rock
Georgia Southern
Georgia State
Liberty
Louisiana Lafayette
Louisiana Monroe
Missouri State
New Mexico State
South Alabama
Texas Arlington
Texas State
Troy

With this makeup and a little time the Sun Belt will shine!

Does the SBC really need non-football playing schools? Add NMSU for all sports and have an all sports requirement for any new members. There are other conferences that would take UALR and UTA.

UALR and UTA are good conference members...there is no need for them to go elsewhere. Since UALR and UTA don't have football...Idaho and Massachusetts take their spots in football.

I found that puzzling, to say the least.

Keep it simple and add James Madison and you are done. When did Missouri State become a "coveted school"?

James Madison has had ample time to make it's intentions known...time to move on! They can wait for the next ship to arrive. Missouri State has been coveted since the 1990's...longer than Texas State was even a thought.
