JSU would be a good addition(IMHO) if the SBC didn't already have two members in your state.

I don't think that would be a benefit for the SBC, but it is not unheard of. UL, LTU, and UNO were int he belt at the same time. Then LTU left and we got the Hoax and that kinda sucks. UNO due to lots of things had to leave. I never saw three as being a big problem a little bit small time for a small state like Louisiana, but UL, UNO, and LTU were often the top three.

We would be a great add for the sbc. We were long time rivals with troy st. and have an budding rivalry with Ga St. Which is only 100 miles down I 20. We are in the Bham media market. We play sbc schools already in almost every other sport. We are definately in the sbc footprint and would lessen travel expense for everyone except App st.

Surprised he said that about our baseball. GSU baseball is a good addition to the Belt for traditions sake. But, under this regime we won't ever win 30 games in the Belt. Clements is nice except that huge eye sore and safety hazard of an outfield wall. Cannot fathom how a D1 team plays with a chain link outfield wall covered with a mosquito net.

Gathering from what most of you other guys think about him, maybe he doesn't quite have the vision to see the truth in that.

But, we are no Boise. They don't have near the potential of Georgia Southern!

It wasn't meant as a knock on you guys. He just (in his history of talking about teams) claims everyone has the pieces to be the next Boise.

Not really a legit travel partner for App though, unlike EKU, Liberty or JMU. If anything, you guys are convenient for Ga. State.

I dont see there is a large difference. The distance from boone, NC to ga st, ga so, and Jax st. Is only 300 - 400 miles. Anyone playing app st could easily bus to any one of these three schools.

I'm surprised Jax State has dropped off the radar. With this quest to add a team in the East, and all the issues we've had with the Virginia schools, it seems they could be a compromise pick.
