Don't pull that "we're just as bad for being intolerant of intolerance" crap. It just makes you look worse.

RE: FCS 4-pack
like it or not, the OP actually makes sense for the stability of the SBC going forward. the cusa is picking apart the SBC because the Big East will keep taking away from them. it's add teams or die at this point unfortunately. don't go the way of the WAC by responding too slowly. If you get 4 regional schools to come together, you will find that all of their admins are FAR more likely to say yes to your advances.

Great, now we have Liberty pimping themselves along with the application state and georgia southern whores. Plus we get the don't ask don't tell fans from jmu. Christ!!!!

Hammer...I'm sorry you'll have to suffer through the Liberty invasion, I guess you missed it last offseason. There's a couple of good ones and they are, after all, well meaning, but they don't seem to understand how far they are from the SBC radar and what a bad cultural fit they are(even if they were just private and not religiously affiliated, I'd call it unlikely from a cultural fit).

They're certainly a spirited bunch.

MTPi, if that is how you feel, I will leave for now (again) and wait for smoke before coming back. Sorry. I thought it was relevant conversation considering this week's events. and I gave lots of logical arguments before others led to the spiral. I never start the off topic convos, others do. But I'm willing to hold off for smoke.

Congrats on the move to CUSA and good luck!

Knucklehead, you know I like you. As far as I'm concerned you're always welcome here whether discussing Liberty or not. You may get unfairly grouped in with some more hardheaded Liberty fans but I don't think you're the one stepping on anyone's toes. You just have to realize that some of the more ardently outspoken against FCS in general(and/or Liberty specifically) will lump you in with some of the folks causing headaches with endless school pimping.

Emotions aside I don't see why everyone is so against this. I favor it because what happens if the Big East gets Fresno and the MWC decides to add Texas State? We have no exit fee that I know of and the Big East will probably need one more addition.

App State and Georgia State will at least give us a level of sustainability. I don't know much about James Madison but they don't seem to be a terrible addition.

According to Dieter Kurtenbach (the FAU beat writer) on twitter, the top 4 are Georgia Southern, Appalachian State, Sam Houston State and Lamar.

I would think there would be, at least hope there would be, CUSA moved so quickly after the nBE so hopefully Benson gets on it..

I believe most of the remaining fans of Sun Belt teams have headed for the cocktail cabinet.
