RE: Reports out of missouri saying JMU and MSU recieved invite
My absolutely favorite thing about this is that by June 1st we have now.......47 days,.....I think this thread maybe the longest ever......and most speculated.....I really also think JMU and anyone else will say yes....but who really knows....about 8 months ago a young man was sitting in my office who had a dinner engagement with of all folks a board member from JMU....said SBC was coming.....this was in general just a discussion of college sports.....ODD....but no more odd then the list of potential candidates

JMU, EKU, Jax St. SHSU, MSU, Western Podunk U, Liberty, etc..etc...

We shall see by June 1st

If you think this is the longest thread ever, clearly you haven't scanned very far down the front page:

http://csnbbs.com/thread-674364-page-259.html

I agree that it is terrific that we have a hard and fast deadline. One way or the other, it appears there will be some resolution.

Actually in 5 days 59 pages.....the other yes from Jan 28 14.....to the 12th....at 3.5 pages a day.....not saying it will be the longest but it could be a pretty long...there was a great deal of angst and push on the Liberty folks side.....some folks just could not stand the idea of Liberty so it got to some passions.....but before this is over and if even after some said anouncement this thread may get to that 259 level yet....particularly if I and others keep writing things like this...LOL

App did the same thing last year. When it comes down to deadline time I feel JMU is smart enough to see the writing on the CAA or FBS wall.

A decision which was made easier to make with GS moving with us at the same time.

A decision which for JMU could be made easier by the CAA evacuees.

A decision which should have already been made easier by the CAA evacuees.

FIFY. If JMU admin hasn't figured it out by now, they aren't going to.

Yea, I don't get JMU's reluctance. Unless they have a MAC bid in their back pocket (which I doubt).

Here's my best guess as to JMU's press release if they choose to not join the Sun Belt.

"James Madison University has come to the decision that it simply cannot have its academic reputation harmed by ending its athletic association with Towson State, UNC Wilmington, and College of Charleston. As result we have decided to remain in the Colonial Athletic Association. In addition, we'd like to welcome Coastal Carolina to the Colonial Athletic Association."

Those at JMU opposed to joining the Sun Belt are making four very bad assumptions.

1) Assuming that the CAA is what it once was
2) Assuming that FCS is what it once was
3) Assuming that the college football landscape in Virginia is what it once was
4) Assuming that the Sun Belt is what it once was

I really feel bad for their fans. I felt the same way when I found out USA was offered a ticket to the Great Midwest and turned it down.

It's sad that JMU can't make up there minds about FBS. Kinda makes me feels sorry for the fans.

While I get the satire, I imagine IF they release anything about a non-move it would be along the lines of the benefits not outweighing the costs. The sheep would agree in masse, but anyone who knows anything about this situation would look around at the CAA and wonder what the hell are they talking about.

Shade not meant at the Dukes fans, who seem to get it, but at y'all's administration.
