I wish there was a way for Jax St. and EKU to both be let in. The rivalry between the two schools has been IMO the best in the conference. I know if Jax leaves it will hurt our conference and just push it into being more basketball centered, and I'd say the same for them if we leave.

I'm guessing this would only be possible if the Sunbelt expanded to 14 teams and I don't see that happening. It's unfortunate because both schools would be long time members and both seem on the upswing as far as administration is concerned.

We are the only two football centered schools left. Would love for both to get in the SB.
It can possibly be a nightmare for the school who is left in the OVC. Neither school deserves that.

EKU moves on you would assume North Alabama will take their place.

Maybe the OVC would look at NKU again to try to keep Morehead State and Murray happy.

Unfortunately for JSU...Its going to take a ton of convincing that Alabama needs another FBS team to get in.

If you guys were located in Jacksonville, FL instead of Alabama, you would probably be in the league right now.

I agree, being in Alabama is our biggest liability even though the SB gets little to no coverage in the number 1 college football market in the country.

I would be shocked if all three applied. But I liken the application similar to the formal invite: You aren't going to do it until you know you are in.

And I think we can all agree that as of right now... NOBODY knows who is in and who isn't.

Hoping EKU goes to the MAC and JSU to the Sun Belt. That way we play EKU home & home in football and basketball.

The MAC isn't looking to expand.

JSU would push for UNA to be admitted. Our administration is different than most, they want universities close to us as conference mates. They are looking for gameday atmosphere to draw fans, media and donations.

Exactly. That is how it worked with my grad school (Texas A&M). You have to "apply" but only after you know you'll have the votes.
