Re: Western Kentucky To Conference USA

From Benson…

Today’s announcement that Western Kentucky University has accepted an invitation to join Conference USA is not a surprise given the communication that I have had with university officials and the rampant speculation over the past several months.  I have long understood the implications of the move and what it means for the Sun Belt Conference.  In fact, the Sun Belt Conference has been preparing for this possibility for quite some time and with the support and guidance of the Sun Belt Conference board of directors, I will continue to make recommendations on what options the Sun Belt Conference has in terms of future members and divisional structure.  I remain confident that we have numerous options and that there are universities that have a strong desire to be members of the Sun Belt Conference.  Last week’s additions to the Sun Belt of Appalachian State and Georgia Southern as all sports members and Idaho and New Mexico State as football only members gives proof that there are universities that want to join the SBC and be part of its dynamic future.


Not sure I understand the motive for this statement.

Is it just me or does it come across defensive in posture?

Uhhh that was mostly because NMSU and Idaho were out of options, it was either the Belt or FCS, and App St and Ga. Southern wanted to get out of the FCS and move to the FBS. In fact App State was holding out for a better offer but it never came. So I wouldn't exactly go around bragging that these schools WANTED to be a part of the belt. They had no other choice lol

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

He does. He's in "we're not as bad as people say we are" mode.

Happy WKU got the invite, they feel like they should be part of the CUSA with us. 

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Tell you what, if the Toppers had not given up SIX turnover sin the first half against Tennessee, they would likely be leading their game.

They trail 31-17 at the half.
