EKU and Missouri St. are not going to happen before June 1 I don't think, so the choice is add Liberty in all sports, add UMass for FB and NMSU for all sports, or don't do what the conference has just voted to do --- that is invite no one.
The SBC does not have to move before June 1. A conference championship game does not take precendence on which schools get invited.
Missouri State might not be politically ready to announce a move this year; however, after their stadium expansion they will be in better position to state the case to the state of Missouri. Like most states, Missouri Alumni run the state house and the purse strings.

What you say (FlaJag and asf) lends itself to a very interesting decision the Sun Belt can now make. Just as the MAC did, offer UMass a four year deal and then go back to MO State in year three to see if they are ready. If so, invite UMass to leave, if not, extend the 4 year contract for another 4 years. Seems like a win-win for everyone (except Liberty).
