The Sunbelt decision is predicated upon what happens in C-USA so that alone is casing a delay. The other thing that I think is holding it up is the candidates that are ready aren't interested or aren't acceptable to the Sunbelt and the candidates with which there is a mutual interest either aren't prepared for the jump or don't meet the current geographic needs.

In the interim I think the possibility of UMass as a football affiliate needs to be on the table and acted upon. Give them a 4-year contract like they had with the MAC and like Idaho and NMSU currently have with the Sunbelt. This gets the Sunbelt to 12 football members and that much needed title game. There is a fairly decent chance that UAB will either get their football team up and going again or C-USA will grant them a waiver and allow them to stay. There's no sense leaving money on the table by not having 12 when there is a very plausible temporary option out there. If it works out that it's mutually beneficial to keep UMass for more than 4 years then they can explore extending the deal when the time comes.
