UT Arlington has SBC invite per ESPN and will accept pending Board Approvalhttp://espn.go.com/dallas/ncf/story/_/i ... ource-says
This puts them at 12 all sports 10 fb, Karl has said they don't want to go 14 all sports but has also expressed interest in getting to 12 for a CCG. We've also seen him mention the possibility of the SBC inviting Idaho and NMSU as football only members (since I'm sure he feels bad being their formal commissioner and all) which would put them at 12/12. I see this as a win-win for everyone, let the SBC have the CCG and the money that goes with it, without adding more all sports members and keeping the geographic footprint still relatively tight while the WAC refugees have a place to store their fb and can try to revamp the WAC as a bball league with the Great West and Independent teams.
That is unless ODU turns down the CUSA invite and MTSU gets snatched then I think NMSU may get an invite since NMSU could join right away and they already have a few FCS upgrades, so even if App St, GA So, Liberty, JMU, Lamar, ect are ready to go I could see them wanting to hold off until this next round of expansion quiets down before grabbing another pair of them.
