Any link or just back channel word?

Thanks.

RE: Heard EKU has applied for membership
Other than just the president's interview, can we really confirm MSU has said no? I feel like true things are publicly denied all the time

Just through the grape vine. Could be nothing at all. Don't get your hopes up.

Wouldn't it be shocking if Liberty, EKU, Jacksonville State & UMass hadn't all applied?

Denying is one thing but he took it two or three step farther. You deny by saying the MVC is our home and we want to make it the best home we can but we are always going to be looking out for what we think is best for MoSt. At this time we are a member of the MVC and we are working to put our sports programs in the best position as possible. That's how you deny if you are even thinking about a move....

Nothing other than his interview. He sure laid it out in the interview though. Unless that was an old interview and he has changed his mind you can see where his feelings are. Seldom does FBS get done if the school's president doesn't even seem to back going to FBS.

First step is getting in and I honestly hope they do. As far as the stadium it needs work but they don't have to go all out. Build some stands on the one side and do some cosmetic work on the other . The designs talked about by their fans will not come close to getting done with the money they are taking about. As far as their budget student fees will be added but from what I read I don't think it will be enough...

that's OK, get in the door and then ask for more.

I think they will have it a little tougher than TXST, GSU, APP, and USA in football but not so much when it comes to basketball.

While the SBC has a few really nice basketball arenas Eastern's is still as good if not better than some especially GST, TXST, ULM and while it's not as large as ASU's it's not any worse on the inside.

TXST is about to totally renovate the basketball arena. Make it much bigger and nicer. FYI.

Please remove that wall! It totally ruined any judgement I could make on the arena. Once that's gone even if nothing else was done it's not too bad. EKU has a wall like that also but the seating is better. GST also has a wall but there's nothing that would help them other than another arena. GST is worse than a lot of HS gyms... other than the wall and needing updated TXST wasn't bad.

The only one I dont understand is UMASS? The others are geographic fits. EKU and JSU are similar type universities to the other SB members. Liberty would be a different model than others but it could be what the other members want.

If its a eastern member these seem to be the only options available but who knows.

Missouri State is not an option for 2014. Now a couple years down the road...once you guys have had a chance to grow your football program? I think you become likely.
