RE: Jax St. Whups Troy st.
Pretty sure if Ga Southern had the for site to see, they could have moved up when Troy did. But I don't think southern wanted to. Troy on the other hand had every intention on becoming FBS even when they moved from D2 to FCS. But that's just a vision of our current Chancellor Jack Hawkins. Who has brought this university So far.

To say the SBC didn't do a vote when Troy moved in is ridiculous. Was the SBC desperate? Yes. But they still didn't choose JSU even when they were desperate. Sorry it's the truth.

Keep being wannabes, Jax State.

If an invite was required at the time of your move Troy would be waiting with us. I will give your administration credit for foresight.

Invites were required. The SBC was just much different in the early 00s... They lost NMSU, Utah State and were down to 7 teams I believe. Troy was ready and looking to move. Plus we were ranked #1 in the country at the time in FCS so we looked like a great add.

Back then markets didn't mean as much as they do now.

I think the bolded statement was in reference to the various transition to FBS paths available. If I recall, an invitation by an FBS conference was not required until around 2009-2010, around the same time the transition moratorium was lifted. Until then and before the move up moratorium, a university could transition as an independent. Good or bad, that route is no longer available.

Based on the scheduling hardships that a lot of the current SBC members experienced as independents the new restriction might be a good thing. On the other hand, it might be considered a bad thing because a university which is financially capable of moving up cannot without an invitation.

A conference invitation is a totally different discussion.

It's an unfortunate situation for JSU. Troy and USA would most likely lobby against inclusion into the SBC and they may have some roadblocks getting into CUSA as well. I'm not sure UAB alone has enough veto power though. USA seemed to get into the SBC regardless of Troy's affiliation with the league.

EDIT: BRAINFART. South was already in the league, just not for football.03-drunk

CUSA would take USA before us for an Alabama team. JSU and UAB are in the same tv market.

That's laughable... JSU is an HOUR outside Birmingham! If that's the case do y'all bring The Atlanta market too?

I guess that means we get Montgomery, Dothan, and Albany, GA.

I don't set the tv markets. Nothing I can do but accept the market JSU is in.
