The always informative Tommy Bowman (who broke the Sun Belt news) throws out some odds and ends.
One area that will addressed is if the Mountaineers, as an FCS program in transition, will begin to add some scholarship players for next season, perhaps in the form of transfers, over the summer.
The Sun Belt does not offer men’s soccer or wrestling, two sports that Appalachian has.
An Eastern Division including Appalachian, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, the two Alabama schools Troy and South Alabama, and Western Kentucky or a replacement, could make the travel issue a bit more palatable.
The Sun Belt has bowl tie-ins with the New Orleans Bowl and GoDaddy.com Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
We’ll have some thoughts later.
