    What current I-AAs are seriously considering I-A moves

    Appalachian State and Georgia Southern? I'm curious. I honestly think Liberty's boss man (Jerry) has that in his visions as well.

    But in all seriousness, are GSU and ASU really candidates to jump soon?

    With WKU, this could strengthen the Sun Belt to 11 teams quickly. Add another for a 12th and you have divisions.

    Eastern Division
    Florida Atlantic
    Florida International
    Appalachian State
    Georgia Southern
    Troy

    Western Division
    Arkansas State
    LA-Monroe
    LA-Lafayette
    Middle Tennessee
    North Texas
    Western Kentucky

    If WKU makes the jump, as I expect them to, they will quickly move to the Mid-American Conference.

    Unfortunatly, GSU will probably not make a jump for a while. Not unless some "changes" happen soon (changes in attitude, not necessarily staff).

    The folks in San Marcos bring it up all the time. It was even in their 2000 media guide about the move to I-A...

    ASu has been saying for a while that they have interest in jumping, but I don't think it will happen for atleast 5 years or so, eventually yes, but not soon

    It is true that we harbor I-A aspirations. But we all know that we are nowhere near being in that position anytime soon.

    And its true that Texas State (SWT at the time) began a plan to make the move up a few years ago before putting those dreams on hiatus until the rules seemed more palatable.
