And neither will EKU or UCA, because the move doesn't make any sense.

Isn't JSU kinda the linchpin in all this? Without them why would anyone else move

Yup, unless they had a plan for FBS Indy/ eventual FBS conference, it's a lateral FCS move w/ a slightly better group of teams.

RE: Honest to God realignment news!
I really can’t see EKU going anywhere but FBS. And hasn’t JSU flirted with the Sun Belt forever too?

Looks to me like a “signaling of intention” by all parties.

The ASun wants to think outside the box, high level FCS schools want Karl Benson to hear their names thrown around.

Still can’t figure out UCA though. Footprint stretcher, probably couldn’t make FBS work in Razorback country.

If we were FCS we would have tried to join over EKU, if only to be able to play in Louisville every season in 18k seater arena Freedom Hall...

This has all become much ado about nothing.

Probably a rumor started out of the ASUN office to keep its name in the news, with some buzz. It worked for a minute..... just like the UAC plan thrown out earlier. Six months from now it will be interesting to see what the next rumor is to keep the ASUN relevant?

I like Ted Gumbart. He keeps it lively. He’s a straight forward, approachable, nice guy. I’m sure he’ll come up with something to have us all talking by June.

Karl Benson retired last year FYI - Keith Gill is the commish of the Sun Belt.

There’s a solid group of FCS schools that could make FBS work from a consistent competitive standpoint. I’d have both Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville St in that group. I think it really shows the need for a third tier in college football.

You have to appreciate Gumbart’s originality.

Personally, I’d love to see him become commissioner of a C-USA/SBC East breakaway conference using the very same Swim Conference scheme he devised to create the UAC.
