Was it recorded? I had a company zoom for an hour and couldn't watch it. But, I've already heard that Alger knocked it out of the park!

Alger did a great job making the case for JMU. Props to him.

RE: It's Official...FBS here we come.
I believe now would be the time to say it:
Our administration nailed it. For years we have been critical of them. Meanwhile behind our anger and frustration they were building a plan. I know I have been very critical of the admin, and I will admit I did not give them enough credit.
I said for a long time that I didn't think JMU would ever go to the Sun Belt, nor would the Sun Belt ever take us again. I didn't know that the decision for JMU not to accept was not a rejection of the Sun Belt, but JMU saying they needed more time.
As everything that has transpired, I am beyond elated for JMU to join the Sun Belt. If you had told me that JMU could be in an FBS conference with App State, Marshall and ODU I would have thought that was very unlikely but would be incredible.
I have a ton of respect for what the Sun Belt has done and honored that we will be in this conference. But to be clear: we are there to win.
And lastly, I challenge all of us as supporters of JMU to open your wallets and show your support.
JMU is FBS. Wow.

Have to admit, was impressed with the transparency the IARC provided. It was good for all of college to witness. Really helps with accountability.

JMU definitely took the time to do it right. And because they did, they could enter that meeting with confidence and knock it out of the park. Charlie presented numbers that would have made it insane to say no. They checked every box.

ODU president Dr. Hemphill was also at the meeting at the Virginia Legislature Intercollegiate Committee today, voicing support for JMU's move. Welcome to FBS.

I watched it live. Don't know if the video session was recorded, but I would guess it was required by state law and may be available now.

CK did his usual masterful job of walking the GA subcommittee (3 Representatives and 2 Senators) through the JMU proposed spreadsheet of anticipated expenses.

Tuned in just a bit late, so don't know if President Alger or AD JB spoke.

Besides CK, only ODU's Pres. spoke in favor of JMU's move as the only public testimony. No-one spoke against the proposal.

CK's testimony confirmed HC CC will receive a raise (as well as the assistants). CC's salary will grow based on the average salary of the other SBC HCs. About 350K will be added to the pool of money for assistants. At the FBS level the FB program can hire 3 additional coaches, and they will be hired, and the coaching salary money adjusted over a 3 year period starting now with the transition. A 2% inflation index is included with salary adjustments every 2 years.

Funding for the 22 additional scholarships will also be phased-in over 3 years. Overall, the entire JMU athletic budget will grow from the current $58 mil to $about $69 mil. That number includes everything, including spirit groups.

The vote was unanimous in favor.

We appreciate ODU's support. The two schools need to be in the same conference together. I'm glad Dr. Hemphill was able to explain to the commission how JMU joining the Sun Belt strengthens both schools.

Exactly. JMU does things the right way and I am proud of that. Our admin kept this very quiet but had been working behind the scenes so when an opportunity presented itself they would be ready.
And it did, and we did.

And the governor didn't even have to call ODU's president and make him do it!
