Fairly confident UCONN (and others not satisfied) could fill an independent football schedule as a result of this loophole. Just sayin...

No. The NCAA approved a waiver. In other words, they made an exception to the rule. Wonder what kind of can of worms that may open?

Exactly. James Madison has hesitated on making the jump because they don't want to play in CUSA. Now they make the jump without CUSA and with H&H's vs Liberty, Umass and Army probably.
Cheers!

When did JMU have an invitation to C-USA?

They didn't but I'm pretty sure the Sunbelt offered and they rebuffed them. JMU wants to move up but they want to do it on their terms and be in a conference with Charlotte and ODU.

I think Uconn could have done it anyway but now
-Indiana
-Maryland
-ACC (BC)
-ACC (Cuse)
-Indy (Army)
-Indy (UMASS)
-Indy (Liberty)
-Indy (BYU)
-Indy (Notre Dame)
-Indy (James Madison?)
-Buffalo
-FCS
12 games.
Cheers!

JMU, Delaware, Stony Brook, Youngstown St, Albany, Jacksonville St, Missouri St, Lamar, and Sam Houston St could announce soon. Wichita St and UTRGV need to get an FCS team first. An FBS schedule will be easy to make with those teams.

Its only a loophole if they grant a waiver. They granted a waiver to Liberty because they don't want a religious discrimination lawsuit. That would not be the case with others seeking a waiver.

The FBS invite rule wouldn't stand up in the case of public institutions either. Nobody wants Youngstown St either, but they have Tressel, Pelini, facilities, fans and a desire.
