Commissioner Benson interviewed again at Ga. Southern baseball game (4/12)
I thought it was a good interview at baseball game today. Here is what he said, starting with stuff about Ga. Southern:

1. Glad to have Ga. Southern in Sun Belt.
2. Very impressed by several of Ga. Southern facilities---Paulson Staduim improvements, golf facility and baseball stadium were the ones he named. Wonder why no mention of our basketball facility :)
3. Said he could easily see Sun Belt baseball tourney in Statesboro in coming years. He said Ga. Southern was no doubt in the top 3-4 baseball facilities in the Sun Belt.

Other things:
1. Sun Belt is looking for a 12th football playing school. He specifically said 1 school, not any plan to add multiple schools. Again repeated his stance that the school needs to be in the East and a traveling partner for App. St.
2. Said next year for sure Belt would play with 11 (we already knew this) but conference wanted and planned to have 12 by July 1 of next year (which means they have to commit by June 1 of this year).
3. When asked about specific schools he made some comment that eastern schools were being looked at but would not name them.
4. Said we needed a championship game and it would bring more attention to the league.
5. Said baseball and softball were 2 sports the Sun Belt has done very well and Ga. Southern should be a great addition in those 2 sports as well as in football.

Then he talked about his time as a baseball coach early in his career before he got into administration.

So basically, he sucked up to Georgia Southern, and claimed we were wanting to add a travel partner for App State?

Meaning, nothing we didn't already know.

That's what Benson wants. What he gets is another question.

Truly surprised he didn't say that Georgia Southern could be the next Boise.

Why does a travel partner help APP ST does it not help teams traveling to APP ST . Hitting two schools on a weekend for better travel cost . Fly in bus to the second fly back for example .

APP ST and Georgia Southern are lucky they are moving with their biggest rival . That has to be a big help for both programs.
