Their stadium would be Top 3 in the conference too. Adding a Virginia school would help and it'd piss off ODU/CUSA. Win/Win/Win

If the aim is to try to piss off the CUSA then why not try to pilfer USM and UAB from them? But JMU wouldn't be a bad add to the Sunbelt. Although I am tired of the Sunbelt being the one to be the doorway for FCS schools to move up to FBS.



CUSA took ODU and UNCC from the FCS. The Sun Belt isn't the only conference that has done it recently.

MAC took UMASS recently too. Then threw them out.

Would take NDSU or JMU for football only in a second. Any full members might throw our travel partners out of whack.

No expansion unless it mean established, top of their conference, FBS teams from peer conferences. Otherwise, stand pat and build on what's here. The Sunbelt has made tremendous strides in the past 5 years. don't lose that.

Based on what possible criteria is Sam Houston State a top program?

Their facilities (football for sure) is crap.
Their attendance is crap.
Their budget is crap.
Their donor base is crap.

The answer to this question is: add no one. If forced, you add Rice (good baseball, storied program, in large market that bridges gaps between universities and brings a TREMENDOUS recruiting location for all schools), and USM.
