JMU Says No to the SunBelt
A very informed source has told me JMU's Board of Visitors met in a closed door session this past weekend to discuss SunBelt membership. After a lengthy discussion JMU's administration decided to turn down an opportunity to join the SunBelt. It was emphasised JMU does not have an invite to CUSA or the MAC as neither conference will be expanding in the foreseeable future. This is likely JMU's last opportunity to make the FBS move for some time to come. There are obviously financial situations in play as President Alger has told JMU alumni groups he would pursue FBS if someone steps up and writes a 7 figure check. It is believed the SunBelt will now pursue UMass for football only and NMSU for all sports.

If true, good luck to the Belt. The fool in me thought that with App State as a former football and geographic rival that the JMU admin might pull the trigger this year and all would be forgiven on our end...guess not.

If true, there is a huge gap between fans thinking they should be in CUSA and their administration thinking they should be in FCS.

How disappointing for their loyal fans.
Hate it for their fans.
Would be devastating at any school for
their hopes to be shot down like that, if true.

Poor JMU! There fans deserve better. Has to be hard hearing that your school prefers being left behind.

RE: JMU Says No to the SunBelt
JMU and MSU saying no at the same time may not be a coincidence. Maybe they know that they're out of the picture because the spot is already taken.
