RE: Arkansas Little Rock Football / Marching Band Study
The one thing that goes in its favor is the direct route to FBS. Sun Belt basically has an opening for LR and Arlington. The question is with football becoming unbalanced what happens?

1. Does Arlington do a study as well?
2. Is this an opening for NMSU to get back in as FO if LR adds and Arlington does not?

I am hoping for LR to say yes much like I was hoping for Liberty to get FBS and WSU to add football. If a school wants to try and risk it, I am for letting them try and see if they succeed. I supported App and Charlotte in their FBS efforts because I did not feel adding them harms the other NC FBS programs and if you afraid of a new competitor, their is already a problem at your school. Not saying in state teams have to play or support them but the should never block them in their efforts.

We would get a game in Little Rock every other year without losing a home game. The Little Rockians would finally get to see how we would travel and spend our money. They would be surprised.

We would have a home rivalry game every other year that the opponent would also travel for.

UCA would have trouble getting noticed.

Hogs would be fine of course but they would still whine about it forever and that would be fun.

It's a little awkward from a scheduling standpoint, but it is now permissible to have divisions with 11 teams. For example:

West - Texas State, Arkansas stAte, Little Rock, Lousiana, Lousiana-Monroe
East - South Alabama, Troy, GS, GSU, Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina

All of the East schools play each other, and then play three games each against West oponents, for a total of eight games.

For the west schools, the 18 cross-division games give three schools in the division four games, and two schools have three games. All five schools pick up four games from their fellow division oppponets. The two schools who are short a conference game can either play each other again, or designate a non-conference opponent as their eighth conference game. The latter would be a perfect solution for New Mexico State, who can use two late-season games (one home, one away), and it would never involve travel past the Mississippi River for the designated conference games.

Is this a leverage move by UALR to get fb supporters in LR to put up or shut up. The MVC could be expanding to 12 soon, and suspect Mo St would love UALR on board. A bad study or lack of funding could cause UALR to seek other options. The MVC would actually be an upgrade if football is not in the UALR future.

Not sure what you mean? Not sure how UALR getting football helps Mo St since UALR has straight path to the FBS with the Sunbelt.

MO St would get a travel partner school in the MVC, but UALR would have to give up on FBS ambitions. It's a clear fork in the road, and UALR must choose which road to go down. FB supporters are officially on the clock.

If my suspicions are right, UALR has already been contacted by Mo St and is just going through motions that fb is not a viable pathway for them. Mbb would get renewed importance and interest in the end.

Your suspicions are wrong. We don't want UALR in the MVC.

This may be a silly question, but doesn't UALR have a travel partner in the SBC Is it ASU or another school? It is not like UALR olympic sports aren't in the SBC. I could be foolishly using simple logic.

I would love to see UALR start a football program.

Belt BB has gone in the crapper. UALR can be the next best mbb atmosphere compared to the pigs or be a very mediocre FBS at great expanse. Which to chose?
