I think the SBC is just waiting for the dominos to start falling. SBC had a plan that involves waiting until 2016 and adding EKU (that is when EKU is scheduled to complete their facility improvements.) That is the best case scenario. Still the plan as long as the dominos don't fall. But if C-USA decides to drop UAB and add a 14th school, then everything changes. Depending on who C-USA takes there are plans to replace. If USA gets taken, then look for SBC to either 1.) invite UAB along with UMass FB only or 2.) invite Jacksonville State. If ULL or Ark. St. is picked then look for Missouri State to get the call up. Either way the plan will still involved EKU in 2016 (baring any mass overhaul)!


East Tennessee would be a nicer travel partner for App St than Eastern Kentucky. But I don't think East Tennessee's new football program has as grand of aspirations as say South Alabama or Charlotte and I think they are content with renewed membership in the SoCon.

Yes ETSU would be a great option if they were interested but they have a long way to go on their facilities if they even where interested. Their football program will be playing in a dome like Idaho only a smaller dome. Think it only hold around 12000.

They're not going to be playing in the mini-dome. I believe that was one of the requirements for starting football back up.

But even if they built the same stadium as Charlotte has, it appears that ETSU is very content being back in the SoCon.
