    yeah Conference USA is hardly a step up. their best teams are being poached by AQ leagues. if we were to move to that league we would be stuck with a lateral move with a much heavier travel expense.

    I'd rather bring Southern Miss in to the Belt along with La Tech, bringing us to 12 and be done with it. THAT is the ideal scenario.

    no FCS move-ups...unless its App State. the Mountaineers are the ONLY Division 1-AA program worthy of Sun Belt membership. they bring name recognition, respect, and tradition to our league. the rest of the FCS division would simply diminish our reputation among the casual fans.

    Travel would be problematic...Boone, NC not too easy get in and out...and it about 20 hour drive from Atlanta.

    20 Hour Drive? Ho Can you pass along what you are smoking? And unless it is snowing Boone is not that hard to get in and out of to my knowledge.

    USM to the Sun Belt. That is some funny stuff there. Hate to bust you guy's bubble, but the CUSA/MWC alliance/merger is going to be a huge success and the teams leaving will not be a big loss. By the way, what happened to your football program?

    I really like the Sun Belt conference. Every year we keep getting better and better. We have been ranked above both the MAC and WAC all season long.

    The days of us being the bottom feeder conference are long gone. However, we (TROY) need to pull our own weight. FIU won three OOC games this year and many of the other SBC teams won several OOC games. We beat UAB. Granted FIU played Akron, but they're beatable and count towards bow eligibility. Year after year we play big name teams for a lot of money, but we get destroyed in the process and our schedule suffers. Aren't we done being other teams chance at bowl eligibility? We need to start scheduling teams from the MAC, WAC, and low tier CUSA/ACC teams.
