But I don't think that is the expectation from everyone - hell even the commissioner said it wasn't a football move but an all sports move. But we've been one of the top FCS teams the past few years and pretty successful overall since starting the team in 2013 - no reason to think we can't be a competitive G5 school after a couple of years.

Before I add my comment, let me preface it with "I'm glad Coastal Carolina was added" just so that is clear.

The commissioner likely said it wasn't a football move to quell some of the discontent from some league members of the appearance or flavor of taking recent move-ups.

That said, given the importance of getting Coastal in and keeping league soccer intact is not lost on me either.

It is rare the commissioner that keeps all the various constituencies happy. I even suspect if we were in the SEC and he was dumping "X" million a year in revenue on our laps the various fan bases could find something to hold against him.

Hah, I hear ya.

I do think the focus was not on football. We have a strong all sports program and fit a location need. From Mohajir's comments I'm sure A State were one of the schools that didn't vote for us and I'm sure one of his arguments was we aren't FBS. When we were being considered I heard that some thought we'd drag the conference down in football. I think that is a bad argument but they were trying really hard to get NMSU in. Nothing against the Aggies but I think you made the right choice and we'll be great members of the conference.


False.

We just wanted NMSU too.

Ok, well I stand corrected. Benson is on record that it wasn't a unanimous
vote so at least one school didn't vote for us and A State has been the most vocal for NMSU and pretty much everything else. I've posted before that I think NMSU should have been added as well ...

Well I can only speak for myself. Problem is the Sunbelt has a perception problem, and we are perceived as the worst FBS conference in the NCAA. Both Ark St fans and Cajun Fans want tbe Sunbelt to be the best conference it can be. We want the Sunbelt to be a great conference, and we want to change the perception of the Sunbelt. Moving up teams from FCS to FBS is not a good way to change the perception.

Now the Sunbelt has done a successful job at choosing teams, look at App State, and Georgia Southern. Trust me Coastal making it to the CWS has change most Cajun fans perception of Coastal, will that transition to Football and Basketball we will have to see. NMSU is a FBS program has a great basketball program, and deserve to be in the Sunbelt. I would rather have 10 strong teams then 12 mediocre teams.

You're not supposed to root for the major conference team. Let alone one that knocked us out.

It's more that I prefer a west coast team over and east coast team to win. I usually go for the underdog but it's coastal. Many teams from the east win national titles. Sorry I'm being a homer.

Late to the thread but I just wanted to say I'm behind the Chants all the way! My friends from USC are red-faced that Coastal is still in the tournament so chanting SBC! SBC! SBC! around them has got to be my new favorite thing. Can we skip this whole transition thing and go ahead and make Coastal a full member? I need an excuse to get drunk in Myrtle.

04-cheers

GATA Chants!

I was at a bar in Wilmington Saturday, and Coastal was on the main TV with several people rooting for them. I'm glad your bandwagon had room for one more, because I've loved watching your run. Don't stop now and take it home Chants!

Amazing to watch this school grow, and blossom.

I'm not a big baseball fan, but I have been following you guys this whole CWS. I have a lot of friends who graduated from Coastal and we keep in touch. Coastal was my favorite FCS team, not sure what I'm going to do now that you guys have thrown a wrench into everything by moving up lol.

We can be your plan B team. Root for us except when we play the Herd!

What is a Chanticleer? I thought is was a Fable Rooster from the Canterberry Tales, but the players in the video said a French Rooster, Thats about to make a lot of Cajun fans excited. A Chanticleer is a great nickname, and mascot.

http://www.ncaa.com/video/baseball/2016-...rs-feature

This is what Cajuns do during Mardi Gras chasing roosters. There are even songs about it. Chanticleer might be the biggest, baddest, toughest rooster to catch. If you catch it probably poke out your damn eyes.

Yeah, it's kind of all the above. For us it was inspired by a story from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (which was a retelling of a french allegory) once we became a branch of SC and didn't change when we became independent again. It is also a specific breed of chicken.

It is also the mascot of the French national rugby team (thanks Wikipedia) and was once the mascot at Rutgers (I knew this from previous research). Our student newspaper is also known as The Chanticleer as well as Jacksonville State's.

Ok, enough history .... Go Chants and beat AZ.

Has any Sun Belt team ever won a national championship in any of the big 3 sports, or would this be an unprecedented accomplishment brought to the conference courtesy of the Chanticleers?

It would have to be a first, right? For teams in the Sun Belt at the time, Charlotte's Final Four run is the top accomplishment I can think of, and I don't think any current Belt teams have NCs in those sports (or softball, AFAIK...).

I would have to say no this has never happened, and officially y'all join on July 1st. It would technically happen while you are in the Big Soufh.

No offense to GS, or ULM, they have won National Titles while being D-IAA but nothing at the D-IA level, both GS and UL have made it to the College World Series, and we have made it to WCWS over six times but never won the National Title

Since we are officially a Division I-A conference it has never happen in the big 3.

We are counting you as part of this Sunbelt Conference bring it home baby.

Oh yeah...sorry. I didn't think those qualified. I guess we could also get into stuff like Troy's NAIA and DII football titles. It'd probably be a nice list if other divisions/subdivisions were included.

In DI, yes. IAA/FCS NC's. (App, GS, ??, not TXST)

TXST has 2 D2 NC's in football.
Our Mascot won NC in 2006
That's about it.

The rest of you can answer for your schools

But hey, you guys just keep going to the CWS almost every year and we will be happy.
They're very good in soccer and golf too. Maybe other sports, I don't really know.

I really liked their fans when they visited our campus 2 years ago. Nice people.

I think they were an amazing addition to the SBC personally.
