With the recent success of ULM and MTSU and Troy in the past, this conference is coming together. We might be more attractive then CUSA And others in the near future. Now we just have to get our act together.

SBC is looking a lot better than C-USA right now.

This week it was announced that the Sun Belt will be part of a five-Conference group that will field a team for a seventh BCS Bowl game. The guarantee that the best mid-major team will be guaranteed a chance to play in a BCS game regardless of conference was something Benson was proud to bring to the Sun Belt, he said.



Huge.

At this point I'd much rather be in the Sun Belt instead of C-USA or the MAC…. Who knows after next year FIU and UNT might be begging to come back to the Belt. I can hope right? :P

Aside from E. Carolina and UCF, C-USA is no big shakes.

SunBelt feels on the rise to me, I dont mind staying here until a BCS conference is the option.

I saw an article about adding some teams that I wouldnt consider though.

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

I'd have no problem with App State & Ga Southern as they have small but very loyal fan bases (actually larger than ours). Liberty or any others, not so much.

I would love to see App St play us and us play them. It brings in new competition and new look.
