So no rush to add UMass. Even if we got them out of the mac this year u couldn't fit them into a conference schedule and I don't think there is room for the CCG at the end anyway. Let's just wait for the other schools to get ready and make a rational decision that will fit the long term needs of the conference

it won't matter who joins if the CCG is deregulated

yeah, but you'll want a CCG played by two equally weighted divisions; hard to have that with an odd number of schools.

That's also true. But even if that fails and you assume status quo the earliest you can have a CCG is 2015, and more realistically in 2016. No rush to add and really no point.

I'd love a CCG but no need to force the issue this year.

Not at all.
In fact, I suspect that if/when this deregulation happens, the SEC, for example will devise a ccg formula that has nothing to do with the divisions. Too many times in the past, Alabama, Auburn, and LSU have had the two best teams in the SEC. Under deregulation, the SEC will figure out a way to always have their two best teams in the ccg.
It is about revenue.

Further, you can schedule such that you have de facto virtual divisions, but without having them defined, there is less of a necessity to have a balance.
In other words, 11 teams would work.

i don't agree. it takes time to put football schedules together. The 2014 season is gone, as you suggest, however, if you want to add that 12th school for the 2015 season, the invite has to go out and be accepted by, what is it, June 1st or thereabouts. Then divisions must be created, schedules made, CCG location determined, tv negotiated, sponsorship sold, etc.. If that can't be in time for 2015, then you're looking at 2016.

You say no rush, however i believe it's been stated that the Belt wants to go to 12 and wants to have a CCG; if this isn't true, then you're right, no hurry. If it is true, then there is no time to lose.

1.) I won't adress you're first point because you can't compare the 'catch-up mode' Sun Belt to the 'leading edge' SEC (the SEC is thinking NC's and play-offs and the Belt is thinking a Conference champioin to crown).

2.) I don't understand what a 'de facto virtual' division is. With a 'normal' division of six schools, you play everyone in your divion plus a rotating three from the other one; pretty stright forward.

Finally, staying at 11 or going to 12 costs the Sun Belt nothing, the CFP will pay you $11 million for 11 members and $12 million for 12 members. In other words there's no real advantage to not go to the 12 school maximum and it facilitates the formation of divisions.

1.) It is still ultimately about revenue. The two best teams, or those perceived as the two best teams, will usually generate the most attendance, advertising, and media monies.

2.) Not as much of an issue with the ccg, but If those divisions are unbalanced, one or more schools in one of the divisions, or the division as a whole, will see itself at a disadvantage especially in the defined NCAA format. If you don 't have defined divisions, then the conferences can schedule as they see fit, and historic natural rivalries won't have to be placed in separate divisions to satisfy the NCAA.

3.)That is correct. But by the same token, you don't have to add someone tomorrow in order just to get the revenue producing ccg, without which likely puts you at a disadvantage in the G5 playoff determination as well.
In other words, you can take your time and determine what is best for the SBC long term, instead of a "panic" add.

Actually you do agree you just can't see the whole picture. Yes it does take time to schedule. Therefore even if UMass joined today you can't fit them in. Also they are already FBS and can be added almost any time I think. So next year is the earliest.
The CCG would be at the home of the top team so you won't know that until the end anyway. Espn has us by the nuts so tv is totally up to them.
2016 is more likely and allows the fcs teams another year to get ready.

My main point is that there is no reason to rush and many reasons to wait.
