Benson has been kissing azz with the Eastern teams ever since he got the gig. He is not making friends in the West, I assure you. He let Middle and WKU lead him around like a puppy, and has consistantly discounted or mistreated both UL and ASU.

He is better than the previous commish, but then my cat would be better than Waters.

Funny how he wants to tighten the eastern footprint when the west of the one really spread out. I just wish the G5 conferences would just realign themselves. but with TV deals and such it'll never happen.

I bet no team is added and we go through this all again next year.

Georgia Southern is going to be the next WKU...mark my words.

GSU's AD will have Benson eating out of his hand in a few months time.

I figure it will be Appy. He keeps saying we need a travel partner for them.

Yep, I hated to lose WKU but it was almost worth it to see the President he had been leg-humping hit the ejection switch to CUSA.

Waters was utterly opposed to conference realignment philosophically. He boycotted it in protest...and it almost killed us.

Why would you think vomit, or excrement is a choice worth making? No, no, please no to either of your options.

I don't think App has the administration in place to take advantage of him yet. GS does.

Wouldn't that make 13 olympic sports? Is that an "ideal" number?

Most conferences ditched divisions for non-football years ago. Not an issue.

IMO, both schools want only the best available(BCS or FCS) schools to be viewed as prospective members. Forget numbers, think quality. State now has a major capital improvement project under way in the area of $30-40 million range for an indoor practice facility, press box/suites, and athletic center. ULL has a major campaign under way. We want the best SB conference possible with like minded academic institutions focused on the three major sports of football, basketball and baseball. And the names most have suggested here for membership does nothing for advancing our conference. In the coming years, I want us to be in a position where the SBC can be seen as a great choice for southern BCS programs like Southern Miss, La. Tech, and some Texas schools on the basis of academics, facilities, fan support, with our programs competing at a high regional level ( minimum) and in a southern footprint which allows fans to travel. If our member schools can't share that vision, I want our program to advance outside the SBC as we now know it.

I don't pick up any real interest in Liberty or UMass from the folks at AState, just a lot of talk about needing NMSU to come in all sports.
