Exclamation RE: UWF to the SBC
LOL ....Panama thinks Georgia State owns the Atlanta Metro and has veto power over the rest of the Sun Belt.

Comparison


................... Georgia State .....................Kennesaw State

Established:.............1913........................................1963

Enrollment:.........53,000 (32,000 downtown).............36,428

Endowment:........ $186 million................................$36 million

Athletic Dept:...... 1956.............................................1983

Distance between: 18 miles with Ga Tech in between them, and UGA 70 miles to the East


Baseball:

Ga State started in 1966, team was dormant half the time until 1992. Major success: 2009 CAA Champ. Home games played, 1,092 seat Panther Stadium.

Kennesaw State started in 1995. Major successes: 1996 National Championship and stayed perennial power in Div II. In Division I, defeated No. 8 Ga Tech in 2011. In 2014, the Owls defeated Florida State in Tallahassee to move on to the Super Regional. Home games played in 1,200 seat Stillwell Stadium.

Football:

Georgia State started in 2010 in FCS. FCS record, 10 wins and 23 loses. in FBS since 2013 with 10 wins and 39 loses.

Kennesaw State started in 2016 in FCS and finished the season with 8 wins and 3 loses.

KSU almost has the same amount of wins as Ga State accomplished in three years in the FCS.

Friday, August 30, 2018, the Georgia State Panthers host the FCS Kennesaw State Owls

Basketball:

Ga State started basketball in 1963. First winning season in 1976. Play in GSU arena 3,684 seats. Geogia State has been to the NCAA tournament three times, 1991, 2001 and 2015. Made to the third round in 2015 losing to Xavier


Kennesaw State started basketball in 1985 in NAIA - 145 W 122 L; NCAA DII in 1984 through 1995, 198 W 124 L; NCAA DI record 96 W 242 L. Play in KSU Convocation Center 4,600 seats. 2004 Division II National Champs.

Since 2005 NCAA Div I play

Ga State's record is 192 W 199 L and Kennesaw State's record 108 W 257 L



Note:

As a Division II school, Kennesaw State won five national championships in four sports: Baseball (1996), Men's Basketball (2004), Women's Soccer (2003) and Softball (1995, 1996).

It appears that KSU has had more athletic success over the years than Ga State.

Georgia State should embrace a Kennesaw State rivalry. It will bring more attention and money to both schools.

RE: UWF to the SBC
That sounds reasonable to me.

I don't think GA Southern will ever embrace GA State as a rival. Their true rival continues to be App St, from their days together dominating the SoCon.

RE: UWF to the SBC
I believe UWF will do the same for South Alabama and Troy. There are a lot of UWF alumni between Mobile and Tallahassee. There are also a lot of Troy alumni betwen Mobile and Tallahassee. Plus a UWF invite sets up a nicel rivalry with UNF/FCGU invite to the conference down the road.

A UWF invite would be beneficial to South Alabama, Troy and Georgia State.

A UNF invite would be beneficial to South Alabama, West Florida,Troy, Georgia State, Ga Southern, and Coastal Carolina

So the news that Liberty got a waiver to start the FBS transition means that Kennesaw St can go too. They have more work to do, but it is possible now, not dependent on the Sun Belt.

No a UWF invite would NOT be good for USA or Troy.

Sure, all they have to do is show the NCAA that since they have 100k students paying tuition, with most of those having no overhead as online students, to foot the costs of upgrading.

In other words: I really think this Liberty thing is a special case one-off, that is being vastly overblown/exaggerated as a "new way" for FCS programs stuck without a FBS invite.
