Sun Belt might add 11th school for football...



The Miami Herald is reporting that the Sun Belt is considering adding another school for football:

Full Story


Any ideas on likely candidates?? I'll throw GA State into the mix.


On a side note:

We need to get OUT of the SBC. Will only hold us back…CUSA - ASAP.

This is discussed a lot on the sunbelt board…

I don't think we need to add any more FCS schools, we finally have WKU on the upswing after so many years winless and at the bottom. The SBC needs to grow and adding the FCS brings us down. Plus we already have USA joining football in the next year or two. With that being said, one of the few options of adding a team would be Louisiana Tech (they hate the SBC but may be left with no other options).

On a personal level despite what I said about the FCS, I would be willing to add App State, just because they are close and I could see the Owls every other year up here.

Until we get out of the SBC, we need to work on making it stronger!

GO OWLS!

That story indicated that the conference would not add an FCS program. Good move. The Sun Belt is just now rising above the "moving-up" conference reputation.
