Article out of Murfreesboro with comments from SBC Commish regarding league realignment who says SBC plans to "add additional members soon".Link at http://www.dnj.com/article/20130310/BLU ... ealignment
Great find as always freak...tons of info here
"We want to create two geographic divisions and make sure there’s at least 10 football schools while considering the option of 12. Our meeting today focused on our goals and re-established what we have called the ‘10-12 Model’ where we have 10 football schools and 12 overall."
So expanding to 10 in fb at a minimum.
"We also want to make sure that the schools in our league make sense geographically and are regionally aligned. Within the next 30 days I expect us to be able to be in a position to announce what the new structure is going to be. If we wanted to add teams right now, we could do that this afternoon."
Plenty of options, want to stay in current footprint not sure if that means Missouri St, Liberty, or JMU are out but he's talks about NMSU later so maybe not.
"We could add two all-sport schools, four schools with a mix of football and non-football, and we can mix and match if we wanted to right now."
A bit confusing but is this stating that they could add 2 more bball schools? If they truly wanted to balance the league they'd need to bball schools in the East to balance out UTA/UALR in the West.
Would Davidson/Belmont be interested in this league if they went to 12/16?
West- NMSU, Texas St, Lamar, Ark St, ULL, ULM w/ UTA & UALR
East - SoBama, Troy, GA St, GA So, App St, Liberty w/ Davidson & Belmont
