RE: JMU Says No to the SunBelt
Hard to know at this point if a 12th school is already committed and just waiting until mid-late May after their season is over to officially join or if the Sun Belt does not have a clue what it is doing and we can't get our act together to decide on a 12th team.

Oh yea of little faith.... Mizzou State did not have an invite, JMU did.

First off, I think they prefer Mo State. Secondly, there were reports last week that both were invited.

There were also reports 2 weeks ago that Liberty was a done deal and only the TV stuff was being worked out.

RE: JMU Says No to the SunBelt
In all honesty, adding NMSU for all-sports and UMass for football only would be the best move at PRESENT time for the Sun Belt IMO. It still gives you the wiggle room in the future for 2 members. Let the ramp up for those spots begin.

RE: JMU Says No to the SunBelt
If the thing passes to allow conferences with less than 12 teams to have a championship I could easily see the Sun Belt just sit still at 11. It gives 2 years to decide to either send Idaho on its way or by then possibly invite Eastern Kentucky who could be much more ready in 2 years than they are now.

Stick at 11. I would like to see NMSU come in all sports.

Odds of that are probably low based on Benson's comments. We are most likely getting somebody in the east for better or worse.

I concur.

You can put UMass FB Only on a 4 year renewable contract like Idaho and always cut them at a later date.

The SBC has too many transitioning FCS to FBS members right now among its ranks.

Next year only Ga. Southern and App are in 2nd year of transition. Rest of Sun Belt is full FBS.
