Jax State, Lamar, Bama State, or wait for JMU.

I'd vote wait...

Me too. No point in have to settle. The benefits are greater down the road.

RE: Expansion rumors
No waiting for JMU. They are just stalling for a CUSA invite and would keep stalling next year.

Time to bring on Jax St. Sorry Troy and USA.

Sounds like Benson is the one pushing JMU and the SBC Presidents are pushing to add this year.

That would be LU. They are the only ones who apparently want in. Good thing they aren't wanted.

There. FIFY

How does it sound this way? Benson has been pushing for 12 since day one.

RE: Expansion rumors
I don't know what the Sun Belt will do when they sit down.

What I do know is that Liberty and Jacksonville State absolutely would accept if invited and start transition in 2013 if invited prior to June 1, and could start league play in 2014 with Georgia Southern and App.

Those in the know say the indications are that Missouri State and James Madison are very interested in the Sun Belt but neither would be willing to declare for FBS before June 1, 2013. Neither will pursue FBS unless they can do transition in 2014, league play in 2015.

In the case of Missouri State, they do not believe that they can have their stadium ready to meet the attendance requirements in 2014. They have less than 17,000 seats currently and may play 2014 with fewer seats than that due to construction. They simply believe it will be 2015 before they have sufficient seats to be able to meet the 15,000 attendance requirement.

In the case of James Madison, it is my understanding that they want to use 2013 to prepare for the needed Title IX changes adding additional players will require and need the extra time to insure they can make the move in a proper manner, including expanding recruiting budgets, evaluating their football budget, and shifting their recruiting evaluation.

App St and GaSo are like TXST and USTA. Both ready and shoe ins.

JMU is the Montana. Keep knocking on that door all day hoping for a yes.

Liberty is like Lamar. Seems like it would happen and all rumors behind them but turned away by current members.

And Idaho and New Mexico State are like Idaho and New Mexico State. Eerily similar.... 03-lmfao

Since you are on here right now, why is it MU posters dislike you guys so much? Did you beat them in some championship game some time in the past?

I tend to think JMU is worth waiting for and that Jax St. might work out well for the Belt in a couple of years. Say, 2015 at the earliest. JMO.

He responds to everyone. He actually called a few ASU fans who emailed upset about something.

It didn't help.
