RE: Sun Belt Expansion: Who and When?
Question: What is the Sun Belt's biggest problem?

Answer: Perception nationally that the conference is horrible on the field and consensus worst conference in FBS

Question: What would help the conference improve on this?

Answer: Add teams that have proven historically they can win and have a strong tradition that have a good shot at winning on the field. This will improve the Belt's reputation on the field and thus help all of the conference's teams in recruiting etc and shed the "worst conference in FBS" tag.

Question: Who fits the bill?

Answer: Georgia Southern and App State have historically across multiple decades in difference eras put teams on the field that win and go toe to toe with big name schools. Georgia Southern and App State have an unmatched tradition with 9 national titles and 11 title game appearances between them (6 GSU and 3 App State). The state of GA has the best ratio of FBS signees for the # of FBS schools so Ga Southern would rack up the talent immediately. As an FCS this past year they signed more three star's than any current Belt team.

Question: But they aren't in a top 10 media market, why pick them?

Answer: The Sun Belt needs winners on the field at this point to improve their image which will help all of the schools recruit better players. The large market's in the Sun Belt now have done nothing to improve the product on the field. With Ga Southern you get the Alabama of FCS and App is the hot program equivalent to FLA over the past 6 years.
