Commissioner Benson interviewed again at Ga. Southern baseball game (4/12)
Benson just donated 2 college football playoff tickets to auction off at our auction for our football fund. He's a winner in my book.

Did he turn around and bid on them himself?

He probably put them in a safe only he knows the combination to.

You guys have to understand that Benson has done nothing negative toward Ga.Southern. He was a strong proponent of us getting in this conference and is seen here as a good commissioner. What he says about needing another eastern team to complete the 6 team eastern division is very well received here.

Granted we are not even in the conference yet (July 1) but at this point I would say Ga. Southern officials are certainly not against Commissioner Benson at this point.

And by the way I have no doubt at all that Ga. Southern officials would support Missouri St. in the Belt and Idaho shown the door.

And what you have to understand is that Georgia Southern (as well as App) were no brainers to invite. He didn't unearth a hidden gem in you guys. He took the obvious choice.

But look deeper to his failures in the WAC, and his actions there to see why folks are down on him.

I think the best course of action for the Sun Belt in expansion would be to bring in JMU and Missouri St. and have Idaho exit at the earliest point we can. Then I would bring in NMSU in all sports. That eventually gets to 12 football schools (a nice east/west split) and 14 teams in olympic sports.

However if you listen to Benson he seems to envision a much more limited expansion by simply bringing in a eastern all sports school. JMU is obviously at the top of the wish list.

The conference will have some decisions to make if JMU says "no thanks" yet again and I believe at best we have a 50/50 shot of getting JMU in all sports. If the Belt is simply going to bring in 1 eastern school and JMU says no then I guess the decision is whether or not to bring in Liberty or go for Eastern Kentucky or Jacksonville St. Going for EKU or Jacksonville St. may mean waiting another year to get a championship game but we may soon have an answer to the question of whether or not Liberty has or can get the votes.

Benson seems determined to have a 12 FB school by June 1 and the clock is ticking.

What could he have done differently? My understanding is that he was working on a plan to poach some MWC schools and a WAC school went around the commish, told some other schools the plan and they got in the MWC and the WAC was left hoding the bag. If you are referencing expanding to 16, that was in the '90's and near irrelevant to his performance today.

No need to wait a year on Jax St.
We're way ahead of EKU in the moving up business. We lack renovating our arena, which im sure would be done immediately upon an invite.
we have the stadium, have upgraded our softball field, and are currently involved in upgrading our baseball and tennis facilities. Our arena is waiting on the word of a move, there is some talk of renovating the Pete and some talk of building a new arena.
