RE: Karl Benson interview from today about realignment
My solution...

Replace WKU with Missouri State. Put Missouri State in the East (at least for time being). This does two things. We get our 12th member for football, but with Missouri State in the East if gives us balanced divisions in basketball. We would have UALR, UTA, Louisiana, ASU, ULM, and Texas State in the West and USA, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, Appalachian State, Missouri State, and Troy in the East. For football we'd replace UALR and UTA with Idaho and NMSU. If Idaho were to leave, add JMU to the East and send Missouri State to the West. Since Arkansas State would have a big interest in Missouri State, they could be cross division rivals. Louisiana could go East in Missouri State's place, but that is their call.

I don't like the MO St in the east option but we I'll take it I suppose. As for a new Bowl, Atlanta would be an ideal choice for another early bowl now that the CFA/Peach is in the playoff mix. It has been discussed for years, with a new stadium coming now is the perfect chance.

Too bad Nashville already has the Music City Bowl. Nashville is a more neutral site, and is a little more centrally located. I won't complain if they were to settle on Atlanta as the location (15 minutes from my house and only 3 or 4 hours from Ga Southern).

RE: Karl Benson interview from today about realignment
I bet the SBC does not expand this year. I think JMU is out for this year, and MSU is not wanting to move up yet. Lamar would accept if invited but they will not get the invite and JSU is not ready nor does the SBC want another team in AL. I bet they dont add anyone this year and wait for schools to be more prepared and more dominos to fall.

I don't see DFW adding another bowl. Jerry has the Kickoff Classic now, the Cotton Bowl will host Army vs LA Tech to start the year. Then you have a BCS champiosnhip at Jerry World and the Cotton Bowl. Plus the UT/OU game in Dallas. Then the just added another bowl in Dallas I think. Maybe the Sun Belt could tap into that.

I'm not opposed to a bowl in Little Rock. Seems there has been talk of a bowl there for quite some time. A bowl in Little Rock would be great for ASU in terms of traveling too.

It is an easy trip for ULM and ULL and lots of potential opponents from the new Big East, CUSA, SEC, Big 12 within the vicinity. Not a bad trip for USA.

Heart of Dallas bowl, I believe, is the one you're thinking of.

Geographically it makes since.... War Memorial Stadium could work. I'm not sure what ties the Razorbacks have with the stadium though.

I've never been to Little Rock. Is there stuff for fans to do?

I'd say an easy trip for ASU and ULM. But UL would be a 6+ hour trip. That's not as easy as New Orleans or Mobile for UL fans. UL, USA, GSU, Troy, and TxSt are all 6-8 hours from LR.

New Orleans is a 10 hour drive from Statesboro.

But it's a quick flight from Atlanta which is where most southern fans live.

Don't just automatically assume I'm trying to argue or complain, I was just stating a fact. I've made the drive to NOLA myself numerous times.

Come on man you know every GaSo fan lives in Statesboro by the way it would probably kill our rep if people thought otherwise,02-13-banana
