JMU doesn't want into the belt!

Will they balk on latest Sun Belt expansion offer?

And then there was this:

Liberty:

Another Virginia based school that's been mentioned by some.This move has an almost zero percent chance of happening. First off, not only is Liberty a complete clash with the rest of the MAC in terms of the type of institution it is (private, religious) it's also pretty much locked in as the Sun Belt's newest member. A source close to the Flames' athletic director tells me the deal is pretty much done between the two parties, meaning Liberty could be off the market very soon.

I've heard that some MAC schools aren't too excited about JMU entering their precious li'l conference.

In regard to JMU either waiting or not waiting on a MAC invite? Who cares. They prefer not to be in the Belt. Humor them.

I believe this article was put in the Liberty thread several days ago. I think the consensus was it is a new fan blog that just threw something up there to get page views (particularly from JMU fans).
This thread should probably join that one.
Again, a few people are taking it personally that JMU hasn't publicly begged for an SBC invitation. It's probably a good idea to remember that they are currently in a conference that it notoriously hard on defectors and they could very possibly be waiting until the spring sports tournaments are through to make any announcements.

I think the main reason the MAC pushed UMass out was to get to even number teams because they knew UMass wouldn't bring their basketball

RE: Will JMU wait for MAC invite?
This is the same thing the Liberty folks were posting earlier this week... The author of the article has no insider information, he's merely parroting what he thinks Benson is saying.

Benson mentions Liberty a bunch, therefore they are practically in! So no Sun Belt for you, JMU. Also, he noted that JMU was DEFINITELY going FBS, when the president of JMU hasn't said anything. Given that most of the JMU posters are actually a bit worried he's going to wait and do nothing, that doesn't sound like DEFINITELY going FBS.

I'm certain that's correct.
