With spring sports being this close to being over, it wouldn't make much sense to announce before then and lock out the sports from competing for a conference title. I assume the Sun Belt or any other conference that really wanted JMU would be fine waiting until then for an announcement.

Yea, I don't see any announcement coming until mid-May. The fact that the Sun Belt hasn't moved forward with other options means one of three things

1) JMU really will take the bid and is just waiting for the end of the CAA schedule
2) JMU has not turned down the bid from the Sun Belt and is still evaluating (JMU is really good at that) while begging the MAC to take them (which is a very dangerous game for JMU if they really want FBS)
3) JMU has a bid from the MAC and is awaiting the end of the CAA schedule to notify the CAA and the Sun Belt (I'd be surprised if the MAC kicked out UMass to take JMU as a 13th of 13th member)
4) There is no consensus to add Liberty (possible even if JMU turns the Belt down)

When does baseball and softball end?

1) JMU really will take the bid and is just waiting for the end of the CAA schedule


This.

If JMU isn't announcing its commitment to FBS and accepting a SBC invite by June 1, they staying FCS for a long, long time.

Neither the Big South nor the MVC are anywhere near as petty as the CAA is regarding departing members. Actually no one is as petty as the CAA. So if the bid group is not going to include JMU, there's no reason to keep it under wraps any longer.
