A10 Question
I may regret asking but here is goes.

There is a rumor that Lasalle is looking at the MAAC?

The question, if you were JMU, would you be happy A10 all sports and CAA/fcs football?

I am asking because you have experienced CUSA/G5...I/we have not.

I could better stomach fcs football playing A10 basketball/new arena.

Interesting question because football is the stronger sport for you but you'd be making the big jump in basketball. Having the new arena will help you become more competitive but it'd take a pretty big upswing to be A-10 competitive — George Mason started A-10 play from a better position and have largely been a non-entity since.

I suspect it's moot for two reasons: 1. The A-10 is resistant to schools with FBS or potential FBS programs outside of the grandfathered UMass, and 2. If LaSalle left, they'd still have 13 schools which is more than enough for a upper-mid basketball conference. I can't see them hurrying to get back to 14 unless, I don't know, one of the Big East programs got expelled or something wacky like that.

Not sure it makes sense. A10 would add a weak basketball school and the moneymaker (football) remains in FCS.

They should look out for whats beat for football program.

No way A10 would consider even ask the PUKES. Stop dreaming and you are stuck where you are so get used to it.

You could make the same statement concerning ODU.

I have....I agree we are stuck but at least we are FBS. I have also said if CUSA Football and Basketball could strengthen a little we would start to rival AAC from a top to bottom perspective.

Since JMU, for better or for worse, is primarily a football school, I'm not sure their fans would enjoy that. ODU fans probably aren't the best to ask because, despite our move to FBS, most fans still consider us to be a basketball school. (Of course, the debacle with the "new" Stadium isn't helping change that.)

My guess is that you would be happier with a competitive G5 football team while competing for the CAA crown in basketball.

I’d take A10 everything and CAA football in a heartbeat. I wish we had that now. That’s because I like basketball better.

I was holding out hope that JMU would join CUSA. The football game would give us a great rivalry game to look forward to every year. And perhaps your basketball team would regain its former glory - although it’s not hard to finish middle of the pack in our league. With that said, no I wouldn’t be happy staying FCS in football even if able to play basketball in the A10. Although it sounds really tempting.

Your football team is too good to stay in the FCS. You belong in the FBS. And, unfortunately, your basketball team would struggle to compete in the A10 (although I’m sure your recruiting would improve due to the A10 brand). I don’t see the appeal of being another version of Fordham in the A10.
