Oh thank Jesus. My guess is Mo State is next in line?

Mo St would be my second choice. Me thinks JMU sees the writing on the wall with the MAC and is done bluffing....ala App last year. Remember when we were dead set on CUSA? Reality check....give me JMU or Mo St and I will sing in the streets.

At this point I want Mo State over JMU. JMU feels like they would jump to MAC or CUSA the first chance they get. Either would be great though. It's time for JMU to **** or get off the pot.

Our administration set us up for that, with all those C-USA innuendos/comparisons. In a way I kind of understand that though, shooting high doesn't hurt. We'd have fit nicely there except for being located in small town of Boone. I'm sure this is a similar situation to many schools in the Sun Belt. Now I'm glad we're in the Belt. I think we can do better things here especially considering the new rules for payouts to G5's. Besides when we compete against C-USA opponents having a chip on our shoulder won't hurt. I believe the pecking order is still 1) add an eastern travel partner for App. and 2) add MO State.

Golden rule of the Sun Belt Board.

If BirdofParadise or Arkstfan says something. Its something you listen too.

Seriously, do they have a good track record of being in the know
or was that sarcasm

They have important jobs. Arkstfan runs ASU's scout site and makes regular contact with our athletic department. Cajun fans can vouch for Bird

I always listen to arkstfan.

On the other hand, BirdofParadise was hardcore anti-GS/App last year and said we'd never get in because we were "too hard to get to".

Well the roller coaster continues. You can substitute some other school for Liberty if you like. The point was really about scheduling with 12 teams in the Sun Belt.

RE: Scheduling with Liberty in Sun Belt
We can go in circles, and we will on here, and more than once at that, but Benson's on record as saying adding a travel partner for App St was a priority as was getting to twelve for football to schedule a championship. Logic tells you that has to be either JMU or Liberty. No one else in our neck of the woods is going to be ready for at least a few years yet unless you slapped UMass in there. It's JMU, Liberty or continue waiting. I understand there is likely no financial advantage to expanding past twelve for football, but does anyone know if Benson's made any commits regarding this? I know he has to get the votes, but would he entertain going past twelve for football?

I agree if it is a FCS move-up it has to be Liberty or JMU if the add is THIS YEAR. Of course it could be some FBS team I guess-- UAB, Southern Miss ????

Not a chance in hades. Southern Miss is angry enough about having to compete against MTSU, UNT, WKU, FAU, and FIU regularly.
