CBS sports is reporting The Sun Belt will add Idaho and New Mexico State as football only members and they add Appalachian State and Georgia Southern for all sports. With the addition of the 4 schools they will have a sun belt title game in 2014. Here's how the  league will look

1. Appalachian State

2. Georgia Southern

3. Idaho

4. New Mexico State

5  WKU

6. Arkansas State

7  Texas State

8. Georgia State

9. Troy

10 South Alabama

11 Louisiana Lafayette

12. ULM

Now for those of you who will ask why aren't Idaho and Nm State joining for all sports its because UT-Arlington and Arkansas Little Rock are in the Sun belt for every sport but football So in 2014  there will be 3 new D-1 teams as Old Dominion joins C-USA

1 new d-1 team in 2013 Georgia State

3.new d-1 teams in 2014 App.State Ga.southern and ODU in C-USA

1 new d-1 team in 2015 UNC Charlotte

so by 2015 there will be 129 D-1 teams

Texas State and GA.State join the Sun belt this upcoming season

I've got a headache typing all of this hope i helped guys. Your thoughts?

Pack, a shot or two of Jack should help with that headache.
Good work. I generally try to avoid betting Sun Belt games
as the quality of play in the conference generally negates
ones handicapping skills.
But I'll keep an eye out for an edge, and if it's there, I'll hit it.
Thanks again bud

no problem wiseguy i myself don't bet the sunbelt as i had a post during the season about why they were added games. But I'm happy for Idaho and NM State that they don't have to drop down to d-2. And for App.State and Ga.Southern who i believe won't have 2 much trouble in D-1 football. I think the Sun Belt did a great job adding the 4 teams

Also wanted to say i don't drink alcohol wiseguy. I have nothing against those who do but i jon't don't drink. Mtn.Dew,Coca-Cola and Dr.Pepper for me

I generally don't spend much time celebrating the wins or
mourning the losses until the season is over. In my case,
I think drinking and handicapping do not necessarily work
well together. I don't want to take away my edge.

I love the Sun Belt conf.as my Troy Trojans usually dominate.Its very difficult to cap but like any sports betting there are always some steals.

well cam i follow the sun belt but don't bet the games as i had a post LY about why the sun belt games are all added games. Think about it you could bet 50 grand on Akron but you're limited on how much you bet on troy BTW cam i've picked your guys high the last 2 years what happened to troy

"Usually dominate" ?

Well JDN up until the last 2 years Troy had been  the top team for a few years in the Sun Belt. But IMO they've underachieved the last 2 years. Sun Belt had their best year LY and most of those teams have left/or will leave for C-USA

agreed brother and i thought that myself but did not write and post it

my point was more about the teams themselves.

it's still painful to look @ that lineup of teams 

some of the best wagers on the board during football season are garbage or under the radar 

do you have an extensive football package on your TV because i do and some of the games are dreadful to watch

i know what you mean kelly. I was just saying too many guys make the mistake of not betting on smaller conferences.

That is plausible and intriguing.  The Montana schools are strong, Sac State beats a D-1 team every year, it seems.  EWU, NAU and Weber have strong football traditions  PSU, too.  Why not?

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment...............but it seems like every year a couple more teams make the jump up........only a matter of time before there's 150 D-I teams in CFB.
