Assume that Liberty would join the Sun Belt in 2014-15:

Sun Belt East: Appalachian State, Liberty, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, Troy and South Alabama
Sun Belt West: New Mexico State*, Idaho*, Texas State, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana-Monroe

But how would the Sun Belt look like with UALR and UT-Arlington in terms of division play (excluding Idaho and New Mexico State)?

You keep them in the West where they replace Idaho and NMSU for the rest of the sports, pretty simple and neat.

Now that's a logic point. You're right about that. But what about that same thing, but with James Madison involved (although it's not interested to get invited at the time)?

what? they have 11 for fb and 11 for other sports. JMU or Liberty which ever they pick will be in the east for all sports 6/6 split. You need to think things through so you don't have to ask as many questions

I was trying to clarify about it if the Sun Belt plans to pick BOTH James Madison AND Liberty.

They need to add ONE school - a school that will be fielding an FBS football team, and can somehow create a travel pairing for Appalachian State.

Jacksonville State might work out. That would be 3 Alabama schools.
You could pair the 2 southern-most 'Bama schools, and pair the northern-most 'Bama school with Appy...

JMU would be a natural, but if they have no interest in the SBC, there may be some other eastern alternatives before settling on Liberty.

Freaked - AWESOME find!
This article about the Benson interview gives me hope that another scenario is in the offing. Add New Mexico St. for all sports, and then add North Dakota St. for football only! NDSU has won the FCS championship for the second year in a row now. What do you guys think of this option??

Love the idea of New Mexico State for all sports (meaning that it'll re-join the Sun Belt as a full member since their time from 2000-01 to 2004-05). But I don't believe that North Dakota State ain't ready for FBS status yet, until the school plans to expand its stadium to the FBS-level stadium capacity minimum. Besides, NDSU is on the Upper Midwest, not recommended for a Southeast U.S.-based conference like the Sun Belt.

3 official finalist in this blogs opinion

JMU, Liberty, and Lamar but I disagree and think even if JMU passes and Liberty fails for some reason that Jacksonville State would still be more likely than Lamar.

Here's why...and p4life it has nothing to do with Lamar except geography.

Football-
After the addition of an eastern#12 an even 6/6 split with the Mississippi river providing the border.

West - Idaho, NMSU, TX St, ULL, ULM, Ark St
East - Troy, SoBama, GA St, GA So, App St, ???


In bb and other sports you'll have after the addition of an eastern #12 an even 6/6 split with the Mississippi river providing the border.

West - TX St, UTA, ULL, ULM, Ark St, UALR
East - Troy, SoBama, GA St, GA So, App St, ???

Now add Lamar and not a Western member...

fb West - Idaho, NMSU, TX St, Lamar, ULL, ULM, Ark St (who do you move?)
fb East - Troy, SoBama, GA St, GA So, App St
bb West - TX St, UTA, Lamar, ULL, ULM, Ark St, UALR (who do you move?)
bb East - Troy, SoBama, GA St, GA So, App St

EDIT: POST #1000
