06:37 PM ET 03.25 | Georgia Southern and Appalachian State will move up to the Football Bowl Subdivision and join the Sun Belt Conference in 2015, according to a report. The Sun Belt has actively been exploring its expansion options, and several other FCS schools have been considered. GSU and ASU will give the Sun Belt 10 football schools come 2015, though the move comes with a price for those two programs: they will be ineligible for the FCS playoffs in 2013. An official announcement on the move is likely to come at some point this week.

That would have really helped TSUN a few years ago, when they lost to Appalachian State.

Well, that's the way the punt goes out of bounds.

Presently, I have a stalker who has chosen to misinterpret as an attack what was intended as inclusive humor. He brooks no reconciliation and has taken his self-righteous witch hunt of diatribes against me to the Bucknuts ...I-O message board, disrupting discourse among the tOSU faithful who are otherwise excited by the Buckeyes being in the Sweet 16. On that message board, I challenged the name shifting stalker to post his bile aimed at me on the threads or other boards. So far, he is content to nest in the shizzle he's dropped on the Bucknut's message board. You may yet see him pursue me on the threads. He has no patience (or any other redeeming quality).

Well good luck with that. It's always the pretty ones that attract stalkers. ;-)

SEC will have to find some replacement FBS teams to schedule now that these 2 have moved up to Div. 1.

(you knew this was coming... ;)

UGA will still periodically schedule Georgia Southern and Georgia State. Though both teams will be FBS, the visits to Sanford Stadium may still be seen as "paycheck" games. The Sunbelt falls a bit short of the SEC, budgetwise.

I hear FGCU has some kind of decent athletic team on the upswing....
