Quote:Boosters made a call to JMU President not happy.

Faculty was happy when they were going to pass on the SBC.
The President understands how much it's gonna cost to send the Softball team to Louisiana, and isn't sure the resources are there.

A majority of schools would take us (LU) in SBC but not a Super Majority with JMU on the table. A month ago we (LU) were golden and the Ivory Tower types were pleased in Harrisonburg.

But in this case money may talk and book smarts may walk.

That's the way I am reading this as well. JMU doesn't really want SBC, but fan backlash of they stay FCS Would be immense.

If JMU is not involved, Liberty can probably get the 9 votes needed to join, but as long as JMU is on the table, there is little chance that 9 SBC schools would voluntarily take Liberty.

Wait, Patch said flat out Liberty didn't have the votes. Others have said there is no way LU gets the votes. So, this can't be right. This is why I say LU is still in it, because I think there is a good chance JMU says no. It's all still open.

And I actually believe Liberty is much closer today than they were because they willingly and totally want to be in the SBC. Still don't get why they would prefer a school that would only take them in a gun to the head situation.

Thing with Liberty is we can only go on actions.

We know the Liberty President visited several SBC schools the past couple weeks. One would think that would be unnecessary if Liberty had the 9 votes.

On the other hand, we also know the SBC is at least thinking about Liberty, and my guess is that we would not actually be having reasonable negotiations with Liberty if they still had zero votes like they did this time last year.

My guess is you have a vote tally somewhere in between. Not 9...but close enough to 9 that you stand a chance to sway enough people to get a spot.

Our guesses are similar, but don't tell the ax grinders.
