I know JMU was always interested in joining the sun belt. I'm kinda surprised they ended up with coastal

If I am not mistaken, JMU turned them down a few years back. Maybe some others have as well if they are now going after Big South celebrate athletic programs.

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
The JMU fans (at least many of them) wanted to join the SB but their Administration did not. The SB proffered an invite last summer leaving both sides plausible deniability and JMU declined. Officially JMU's Admin says no offer was made but everyone pretty much knows it was offered and turned down. So the SB moved on and JMU was left sitting on the side of the dance floor with no invites to dance.

I thought they might go with App State.

App State was already in at that point.

He meant he though they'd move up with App State when they moved up.

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
Ahh, sorry I missed that. In the end the Admins at JMU want to be higher up the food chain than the SB. I think their fans are now of the mind set to use any first step to work their way up to where they want to go. There are some real battles going on in JMU land and I really do not know how it will all work out in the end. That said I am so glad ETSU brought football back and I think the SC is a great fit for the return. Go Bucs!

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
Just reopens the wound a bit. I stead of making excuses and saying we can't had the administration put their nose to the grindstone and dedicated itself to being successful, that very well could've been ETSU.
Ultimately though, it's okay. The P5/G5 split is going to happen and that'll be ETSU'S chance to move up.

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
They need Valdosta St, West Georgia, and a couple of other Peach Belt teams to move up, and just take on KSU as a full member.

If Big South football is still around, maybe UNA if OVC continues to snub them:
