Realignment Score Card
Rank # 10 - Sun Belt

Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Idaho, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico State, South Alabama, Texas State, Troy

The Sun Belt can be considered a winner simply because it avoided the WAC's fate and is still breathing, even if it ended up taking on the WAC's two worst programs, Idaho and New Mexico State. There's at least some intrigue here: Louisiana-Lafayette may be a legit top-25 contender in 2014, and Appalachian State begins life as an FBS team with a trip to Ann Arbor in August

RE: Realignment Score Card
I think the SBC landed on its feet pretty well considering all the members it lost in such a short period of time. I think App St, GA St, TX St, and NM St are all excellent replacements for the members that were lost. Idaho is a good school, they just don't fit the geographical footprint of the SBC. Overall, I'd give the SBC a grade of B+ in realignment.

Guess you didn't like Georgia Southern's addition to the SBC since you didn't mention them.

That is simply a pre-season 2014 ranking of conferences, not a ranking of how well they faired in realignment. If it was that kingd of a ranking, the ACC would be at the top.

Why would the ACC be at the top? Because Notre Dame will play four games in the AAC? Remember they lost Maryland.

Yeah. Think that's why some people wanted to take EKU. As much as to tick them off as anything.

EKU is about location. To be honest out of all the schools that we lost I only want MTSU and WKU back. Even though I had a tremendous crush on Sadie Wells from FIU when I ran track at Louisiana. Those two schools were great!
