three hundred miles is a little more than a convent bus ride.

Louisiana only has two trips under 400 miles. Usa and ulm. The rest are 400 plus miles.

300 - 400 miles is a pretty common trip for schools in any conference

Just think, if your App, you have to drive past either UTC or GSU to get to JSU. I think for now the Gamecocks are all dressed up and nowhere to go. You could give the SoCon a call, maybe Samford and the Mocs can put in a good word. Otherwise have a happy OVC life.

I'm always surprised when JSU gets brought up. Other than their football and softball stadiums, they are not close to moving up. They also need a new locker room that can dress two FBS teams.

The purpose is not for app to have a team to play its for the other teams in the sbc east to have a team to play near app st.

as far as the socon goes the ovc is now a lot better conference than whats left there.

Ga st. 300 miles perhaps app doesnt need a travel partner. 18 miles further than jmu 30 miles further than eku. And 76 further than liberty.

A new locker room would be a fairly minor addition. They could be easily replaced while renovating or building a new arena.

Then why look to Virginia ?
You guys built a nice stadium, 24,000 seats worth. Your way inside the footprint, If y'all were seriously considered don't you think JSU would have an invite by now ?
I think, and this is not meant as disrespect to your school, that your program is a few years behind the curve on reclassification and either Troy or USA is gonna have to move on before we see the Gamecocks in the SBC. By then, if ever GSU(State) will have moved on as well. Heck given that State may have by then, acquired Turner field, and converted it, improved their product, they're a potential ripe plum. Then there is the possibility of a 30,000 student KSU Owls program running right past you guys.
Maybe UTC and JSU move up together at some point, I think that is feasible, but there will have to be another pole shift in realignment to facilitate that.
Maybe if we were to lose three or four western division programs, like ASU, NMSU, Texas State, and UL-L, then the SBC might take a necessary eastern shift with JSU, EKU, UTC, and Liberty.
All good schools, worthy IMO, but for various reasons, not favored.
