But would it rival the App State/Georgia Southern rivalry that is tops in the nation?

Just the sun belt nation.

I don't see the sbc having football only members in 8 years and i don't see Idaho and umass going all in.

Since half of the conference is new who knows what direction it will take. Football only is at least done by two other FBS conferences. No FBS conference has non football playing members except the SBC.
The 12 -12 plan is fine going forward but some are obviously against it. UTA and UALR could be forced to add football if 12 all sports is desired. 12-14 makes no sense ten is a better number for basketball.

If I understand you correctly, the ACC has Notre Dame who is a non-football playing member of the conference despite having football.

I'm no expert on Arkansas sports since I'm a transplant, but I can tell you the odds of UALR ever adding football is pretty much nil. The UA BOT with never allow them to field a FBS team. The state is short on talent as it is, and UA has to recruit TX pretty hard to even field a team.
