If I were Coastal or EKU I'd pass on the Sun Belt.

Wondering if the Big South will dissolve, as far as football, and if any of the programs will join the SoCon?

Location, location, location, and pleasing to Ga Southern, Ga State, and App State. It will result in a decent geographic eastern division.

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
Slightly off topic:

The non-power 5 conferences of FBS should get together with the FCS conferences and re-align based on geography. Focus on creating rivalries with schools close by and create their own network to be distributed by local channels (similar to the old Jefferson-Pilot).

If the SEC and the like all move to 9 conference games it will change a lot of things.

RE: Sun Belt Expansion
It wasn't a month ago that the Sun Belt commissioner encouraged the schools to stop scheduling the "money" games against the Power 5 conferences and instead schedule peer institutions.

I don't think that the Sun Belt makes a lot of sense for Coastal right now (I didnt think it was right for Appy State either) and especially not if they try to cut back on the money games.

And, the additional funding for athletic scholarships, of course, is primarily for the power five conferences, thus placing additional financial pressure on these non-power five conferences. Could be that there will be another major shake up among these non-power five schools over the next decade. And, could be that the power five schools will eventually separate completely from the rest.
