I know I'm not the only one who is sorely disappointed in your administration's decision. JMU would have been an excellent addition to the Belt. I wish the Dukes the best of luck in the FCS.

Now, how many of you JMU guys are planning to lessen your donation level if not pull it entirely in light of your leadership's short-sighted decision?

JMU sent out a letter to boosters that basically said they were not interested in the SBC Or CUSA. Fans are not happy.

RE: JMU Fans:
Gonzo, its over for this year. JMU isn't listening to their fans.

Quite frankly, its time for us to all just wish JMU the best in CAA and move on.

And the Belt is going to probably demand a signed application from the JMU President and the JMU BOV's before talking to them again. Its a waste of time at this point. Quite frankly, I think we should.

And even then, there will be people (not I) who will be opposed to JMU as a result of their decision to turn the Belt down.

JMU has really painted themselves into a corner. But I suspect that their BOV and their administration actually wanted to paint them into a corner. I don't think its the Sun Belt. I think its FBS they really don't want. They have to know that the chances that the MAC will take them is not good. That CUSA will take them is also not very good (actually even less).

RE: JMU Fans:
The irony is that this decision was made under the guise of saving money. Now they're hemorrhaging donors.

If Southern did this last year, I would have thought long and hard about even participating in the 2013 season.

RE: JMU Fans:
There were several donors that said that if App State didn't go FBS they would quit donating,
and some said they would never start donating again. Not sure that it wasn't just talk, but
sounded serious.
