    SunBelt expansion chatter

    Apparently, Benson is feeling some pressure to add a football member and implement a Belt championship game.

    My sources in this part of the world say that Mr. Peanut tried his best to persuade UALR to consider adding football. Even going to far as to PROMISE a future bowl game at War Memorial. Nothing much came of those conversations.

    But now there's some smoke coming from Eastern Kentucky as well as Coastal Carolina about moving up to FBS and joining the Belt.

    Anyone think there's substance to any of this? Could any of these proposed moves potentially impact Tech?

    Good ole Mr. Peanut;

    Mr. Peanut has brought the WAC post season split the pot to the SBC. In the WAC it wasn't so bad with 4-5 bowls, plus the odd AQ bowl thrown in; SBC doesn't have near the post-season revenue, ULL gets paid back for bowl expenses and the extra get split amongst the entire conference. To make it better ULL had a bunch of creative bowl expenses (coaches bonuses) they tried to pass off last year in a bid to keep more of their bowl payout, but SBC denied and ULL had to scramble and make up the gap for the promised bowl bonuses. Notice the immense amount of turnover this year at ULL, if you were promised a bonus then told well maybe not would you want to stick around?

    "Bright" was the word you were looking for. Mr. Peanut is so Bright!

    I think Mr. Peanut went public naming Eastern Kentucky and Coastal Carolina as candidates to send a message to James Madison letting them know this is their last chance at FBS.

    I once took part in a public heckling of Karl Benson while he sat next to our HOF President. No, I'm not ashamed.

    As I recall that would have been you... and I joined in the heckling. Maybe not my finest moment as a fan, but ...
