Unfortunately this is true, great stadium, pretty cool city. I enjoyed my 3 trips there....2005,2006,2007. Also a good travel partner for App/GaSouth,GSU.

RE: JMU and Mo.State are out. Who ya got?
If UTC was financially stable, I'd call them up in a heartbeat. They have the facilities ready and they have proven to be successful on the field/court. To top it all off, Chattanooga is a very nice city to visit, they would get us back into Tennessee, and they sit in a larger market (86th in the nation) than JMU does (Harrisonburg is 178th in the nation.)

I voted for what I want to happen.

What I think will happen is no addition by June 1st, with increased chatter with Eastern Kentucky.

RE: JMU and Mo.State are out. Who ya got?
The only reason I say UMass out of those 3 options is that it still provides some flexibility to wait and see if there are other options that come available.

Just saw their athletic website and facilities. They are pretty nice and definitely are FBS ready and no need to really expand, unless regularly sell out their stadium.

RE: JMU and Mo.State are out. Who ya got?
I voted UMass, but I'm thinking of it in terms of UMass now--EKU later, not really an either/or for those guys, give EKU a few years to get ready. Or just stay at 11, which really should have been an option.

Yes but too much opposition in the SBC... Troy and USA would likely block it.

Their facilities outside their football stadium are sub par.

Baseball results are average at best. (SBC is a strong baseball conference)

Basketball is bad.

Football has been average up until this past year...

And their budget is smaller than ULMs, and in a market about the size of Troys...plus would be the 3rd Alabama school.

That's a lot working against them.

They averaged 9,922 and that's if you believe them. I saw their game against WCU last year and they had maybe, maybe 4,500.

No clue where you got those numbers. Mine are easy to understand. Total votes minus a teams fans. To see who the people outside of these three schools want. If it was a contest about which of these three teams has the most of their own fans on a sunbelt message board we already knew that answer. I prefer to look at who outside of LU UMass and EKU grads really wants. As of now it is football only UMass follow by Liberty and then my choice EKU.

RE: JMU and Mo.State are out. Who ya got?
Four of the main reasons I voted for UMass is that they have positive name ID, are the flagship university in their state, are not a regional school, and they are already a FBS member.

You guys need to convince UTA to add football. The easiest and simplest solution.
