So we are left to wonder at this point if JMU is just waiting until the CAA seasons are over to announce (late May) or if it will come down to inviting Liberty or staying at 11.

RE: Breaking: MO State President-'no contact with sun belt'
Does no contact just mean a Sun Belt committee hasn't officially visited MoSt, or something different.
Some of their fans seem to feel it would hurt their basketball program.
Even some of MoSt posters seem to disagree that nothing is being done.
From a thread entitled, "Why The Secrecy" posted @ a week ago by GoBears2013:
"Couldn't agree more with your statement. I have all of the confidence in the world in President Smart and I'm sure he is working his magic behind the scenes."

There's been contact, this just their way of saying they're not interested. UMass might be back in play.

And Liberty would likely wait till after baseball is over too. This just proves we need to basically doubt all speculation for now.

Isn't this what Presidents always seem to say? The focus on basketball is different, but usually it's deny, deny, deny.

I doubt this is one of those.

Benson is intent on adding in the east and has been pushing Liberty. Its probably just a matter of whether or not enough of the Presidents follow him over.

Lot of up and down on every school.
Actually kind of interesting, but gets old.

I don't know. Usually it's "We don't have an invitation". Them saying there has been no contact is a different way altogether of denying the rumors of MSU to the Sun Belt, and I'm not sure what to take from it. You know we would have talked to them and explored that option. Very strange indeed.

The Sun Belt don't need no stinkin' new teams. I think I've been clear on that.

Maybe Benson invited the wrong Missouri State.
Maybe we invited Missouri instead.

RE: Breaking: MO State President-'no contact with sun belt'
It would be very surprising to me if MSU did not accept a Sun Belt offer, especially if it meant NMSU becoming a full member and Idaho leaving. Again, tread lightly with rumors.

But considering that he was in New Orleans for the tournament (or at least I thought that was confirmed), doesn't that make that particular statement... wrong?

Don't know if we are in play, but just in case we having a live stream of our Spring Game. It will be cold and windy in the upper 30's and dropping from there. It's an unusually cold blast, but will be heading done to do some tail gating. It's been 2 1/2 years since tail gating at McGuirk. Not sure if it's free, listed as premium, but hopefully that will change.

Wed 7PM UMass Spring Game Stream

The patented local sports talk show interview with the school president. Normally about as honest as a politician. A move like this has to be done under the radar and in the board room not out in the open.
