Funny. I saw the August part and missed the 2003... you got me.
let's look at how long the Sun Belt's (future) football membership roster has (currently) been I-A...
Arkansas State (1992)
Florida Atlantic (transitional)
Florida International (transitional)
Louisiana-Monroe (1993 or 1994)
Middle Tennessee State (1999)
North Texas (1994 or 1995)
And this would matter why?
Also, renewed kudos for stealing someone else's "UC-Davis to the WAC," and then claiming it as your own under the banner "You heard it here first."
Sorry, I don't have a clue what you're talking about here.
Have fun watching another dreadful New Orleans Bowl and following the NCAA aspirations of a one-bid basketball conference...
Well, crap, I didn't realize how pathetic we are. I'm gonna quit pulling for the Cajuns and buy an LSU-BR hat tomorrow. What was I thinking being a Ragin' Cajuns fan through thick and thin when, all along, there was a university that I 1)didn't go to, 2)is a recent winner, 3)isn't in my hometown and 4)stole my school's name in 1984 that I could have been pulling for all along?!
I'm glad you brought this to my attention.
Also, the SBC invitation of Denver (around 1998, when its closest "rival" was in Little Rock) still defies logic...Idaho, NMSU, and Utah State were in the Big West and probably would have stayed there longer than they did if not for the WAC/Mountain West "schism" and the losses of Nevada and Boise State to an eviscerated and reloading WAC...
The Denver grab was back when "Market Size" was the big buzz... and the Sun Belt was low on teams after UTPA left before being kicked out and Lamar decided to move to the Southland.
It is the only decision Wright Waters has made that I would call "stupid".
