Do you have any articles proving this or did you hear it somewhere?

RE: EKU making the right moves
Here is why I would doubt they go the UMass/all sport NMSU route:
1. UMass is hardly a travel partner for App. The commish has repeatedly said the 12th FB playing member needs to be a travel partner for App.
2. Last year the vote on whether to bring in NMSU in all sports was turned down. I know WKU is leaving but it is hard to believe 1 vote may make the difference in now wanting to bring them in.
3. The commish has repeatedly talked of a tighter footprint. UMass/NMSU doesn't really do that.
4. It appears conferences will probably by next year (2015) be able to conduct fb championship games with less than 12 teams, so it removes the urgent need to add a 12th fb playing team.

It seems to me the conference would just sit still at 11 rather than go the UMass/NMSU route. I still believe adding Liberty or possibly even EKU this year is more likely than UMass/NMSU.

I guess we will know within the next month.

Somehow I don't believe that.

RE: EKU making the right moves
If I were predicting right now I would rate the following in order of likelihood this year:

1. Invite no one -- stay at 11.
2. Invite Liberty or possibly Eastern Kentucky
3. Invite UMass for FB and NMSU for all sports.

I have no idea if the so called meeting is accurate, but our Athletic Director's last tweet was from Santa Monica, CA.

Though its worth nothing that the presidents make the decisions on realignment...not the AD's. Though the AD's certainly have a say.

Don't the AD's basically do the bidding of the Presidents?

Yes, the AD's are generally the evil minions in this deal.
