The Belt is still considered bottom rung so no to UAB or So Miss, but we're out to change all that especially with the new G5 setup and some extended length of stability we can. We've got to get better tv deals to do this.

RE: Scheduling with Liberty in Sun Belt
If BOP or I have an opinion, it's just that, an opinion.

When we say "this is what's happening" it's because we know something.

As to scheduling, assuming we have a 12th member and it is an eastern school, the logical pattern in football is:

West plays all west and plays one of each pair USA/Troy, GaSt/GaSo, App/East School for two years then rotates. That way you go to Alabama every other year and always have an Alabama school on schedule. Go to Georgia every other year and always have a Georgia school on schedule. Go to NC/Other State every other year and always have one on schedule.

East plays all east and plays one of each east pair each year: UL/ULM, AState/TXSt, NMSU/Idaho. East does a far West trip every other year that way.

Hoops. No divisions, but think of the divisions as schedule pods divided east/west. Permanently play everyone in your schedule pod home/home (10 games). Play two schools from the other pod home/home (4 games). Play a single game against the remaining four schools (4 games). That gives you an 18 game schedule. Rotate the cross-pod games each year. Over the course of three years you will play schools in your pod 3 times at home, 3 times on the road, and the six teams in the other pod 2 times at home, 2 times on the road.

No need to have all 12 teams at the tournament, the 8 team format only eliminates four teams. Looking at leagues with 18 game slates the worst case would be the unlikely outcome of a school going 9-9 and missing the tournament, generally the cut line will be at 8-10 or 7-11. The Pac-12 would have been the worst case this year with that format with the eliminated teams being 2-16 USC, 3-15 Wash St, 8-10 Oregon State and the final tournament slot going to tie-breaker between 9-9 Utah and Washington (they split their series but Utah split with #2 UCLA while Washington lost their sole meeting with UCLA in Seattle).

I think an issue is that having a division where 1 team has been a full FBS member prior to 2013 is going to be a problem.

Actually, it guarantees that one or two will have success. Mix the move-ups with the established teams and they might have trouble finding momentum to improve their program. Put them all together and some have to rise to the top.

That's a good thing, and it most likely cant be avoided. Its much better for the newbies to play each other because it makes their result look better. The NCAA doesn't sit there and judge whether or not they are playing move ups or not when judging the top G5 league.

Arkstfan, in your post about scheduling you only have football teams playing 7 conference games--- 5 division games and only 2 cross over games. I have to believe the Belt will play an 8 game conference schedule.
