Oh Sun Belt Conference, just when I thought you couldn’t get any dumber…you go and add UT-Arlington….AND TOTALLY REDEEM YOURSELF!!!
Just kidding…who the hell is UT-Arlington? I’ve LIVED in Texas and I’d never heard of them until the Sun Belt decided they HAD to have them.
According to CBS Sports, the Sun Belt had their little conference meeting thing and decided they wanted UT-Arlington and no one else. Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson said:
“We are not pursuing additional members at this time…At this juncture, the Sun Belt shouldn’t be considered a landing spot whether it’s an FCS member or an existing FBS member.”
“As for the possibility of conducting a football championship game, in the near future the Sun Belt will conduct a very deliberate and thorough evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of a football championship game. At this time, the Sun Belt is committed to strengthening its current membership and taking advantage of the new members that have been added.”
