To Louisiana and Ark. St. fans
We read so much speculation about how you 2 schools view expansion. To any fans of those 2 schools what do you believe your school's position would be on

1. Bringing UMass in a FB only starting in 2015
or
2. Bringing Liberty is as an all sports member?

I don't have a clue but I hope neither. Hopefully try to influence Missouri St to move up and in with NMSU all sports.

Being close to insiders at the athletic department, I can tell you they were visited by Liberty officials. After conversations with other athletic departments within the conference, I strongly believe they would not get a vote from UL.

I think this is the reality-- neither UMass nor Liberty can get the 9 votes. I guess we will see in the coming weeks.

Exactly what I expected to hear.

The Speculation has always been that ASU and ULL's administrations would prefer Missouri State in some capacity. Its also hard to push either for a championship game, when the game between the two schools has pretty much decided the last three titles.

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

I don't know for sure what our administration thinks, but most diehard Cajun fans would want NMSU for all sports, and either and stay at 11/13, or add MoSt all sports to get to 12/14.

I think Commissioner Benson basically believes to replace WKU the Sun Belt needs another team in the east. Getting everyone to agree to who that team should be is quite another issue.

RE: To Louisiana and Ark. St. fans
No idea what they are thinking. But the West is spread to hell and back while the east is at least moderately compact. We need a closer rival. The only one plausible is Missouri State.
