JMU COA was apparently announced almost a year ago. Are we just now figuring this out?

RE: JMU and cost of attendence
Relevant to this discussion, here is a quote from an article about the likely departure of UR's AD:

"Richmond may be interested, according to the sources, in transitioning to a basketball-centric AD, given that the Spiders flagship sport is men's basketball, the one with the most revenue-producing potential."

From the article it sounded like UR is in the "movin on up" mode and the AD was stuck in neutral. They're looking for something big.

RE: JMU and cost of attendence
The key here is to stay away from VCU.

Ever since they left the CAA, our fortunes and exposure have been ramping up.

For UR, the opposite. Since VCU joined the A10, UR has fallen off. They aren't even the #1 team in their own hometown.

UR could move to the Big East in bbl, that's the only upward move out there. Even here though, I think VCU has now generated more interest.

Agreed (though I think UR to Big East is a pipe dream for them). I don't see how UR would ever move up before VCU.

VCU has a Final Four this century, is in the midst of 7 straight NCAA appearances, has sold out over 100 straight home games, has won 24+ games for 11 years straight (only Kansas has such an active streak), a rabid fanbase and a large alumni base, they've won 8 NCAA Tournament games in the last 10 years, they've finished 1st or 2nd in the conference in 5 of the last 6 years and they tend to play more exciting basketball. I don't see how, barring a deep run, UR could expect to move up before VCU.

Big East is all small-mid sized private schools, a large public with nothing special academics like VCU doesn't really fit.

I wasn't suggesting that VCU should move to the Big East, necessarily (though schools like DePaul and St. John's have over 20k students and Georgetown is approaching that). At 4,100 students, though, Richmond would be the smallest school in the Big East (behind Providence with 4,500). My comments about Richmond to the BE was geared more toward the issue that they haven't had nearly the basketball success that would be required to make that move, IMO.

That's not to say UR shouldn't try to do as much as they can to be successful in basketball and see where the chips fall. Basketball provides a much quicker way to compete on a national level than football. See Butler, for instance, which suffered from pretty constant futility until they broke through (only one NCAA appearance before 1997, and now have two title game appearances). As things stand, though, I think they need to do more before a bigger conference will come calling.

The key to all this is that Richmond will lower their academic standards so they can get any player in there regardless of his academic record.
