The fact of no announcement yet could just be UMass needing the time to
negotiate their best way out of their MAC agreement. Probably not too easy
to do in one phone call.

Yeah, so if that is the case, then we might not hear an announcement until... football season. Schedules are already set for this coming season, so it would be next season that they could move (at the realistic earliest).

If true, then there's REALLY no rush to announce.

Wouldn't UMASS have to say by July 1st that they are going to be SB affiliate members next year in order for that to happen? I thought the deadline for move-ups was June 1 and for existing FBS teams changing conferences July 1. Could be wrong, just thought I'd read that here somehwere.

Keep in mind, UMass is still in the MAC for two more years.

That's kinda what I was hinting at... I figure they could announce around football season that they were coming on board in 2016.

RE: EKU making the right moves
I would expect something to be said about expansion during the league meetings in 2-3 weeks. Even if we are going to stay at 11 for now Commissioner Benson would say that.

I may be just speaking for myself but I am ready for this issue to be decided, whatever the decision is.

Yes, I'm aware of that. Thanks for your input. Back a couple years ago, there was one to two people that wanted us JSU folks to stop trolling and go away. We stayed and met some really nice folks...

But, of course he has to ask in a public forum, since EKU is not part of the Sunbelt, and he is not "Sunbelt and FCS Football Insider".

Though with respect to "Happy Birthday, Mr. President", I expect if Sunbelt Insider looked like this and asked the question in person ...
