Sun Belt Conference Expansion: Louisiana Tech, New Mexico State Reported Targets

So the Sun Belt Conference wants to field a stable of 12 teams soon. The South Alabama Jaguars joining up in 2012 will give them 10, not to mention tilt the conference's balance back towards the actual Sun Belt and away from Colorado. Denver Pioneers, what would you say you do here?


The conference currently has no programs from the state of Georgia, and Georgia State Panthers fans have set their sights on the Belt as a temporary home on their way to the SEC West in 2013, NL East in 2016, and ultimately 2018 FIFA World Cup hosting status before purchasing the NFL to use as a feeder system while expanding into the governance of European countries.


However, though a FCS program from Georgia would fit the Sun Belt's sudden "geographical footprint" stipulation, they say they only want schools from FBS conferences for the time being. This also rules out the Georgia Southern Eagles, who are entirely comfortable doing a specific thing well for a long time whether Bill Hancock catches wind of it or not, and the Kennesaw State Owls, who can never seem to break out of the Sun Belt and into anywhere but the Big East in my EA Sports dynasties anyway.
