Default App State to Sun Belt

Per Tommy Bowman of the Winston-Salem Journal. Likely will accept Wednesday. Georgia Southern also has a presser scheduled for Wednesday, so they could be jumping up too.

that's good to hear, that University is too good to be in the FCS. Hopefully Wofford will make be able to make the jump one day.

EDIT: Thanks Don

I see this as a good idea because under the new rules the highest ranked non BCS team (conferences other than the SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC 12 and ACC) will automatically go to a BCS bowl.

Of course it may be difficult coming from the Sun Belt, but people said the same about teams from the WAC years before.

Sun Belt is a temporary stop for App.

Although it's probably highly unlikely, I hope we don't schedule App St. or Georgia Southern in the near future...GSU runs the option more effectively than Wofford in my opinion. Heck, I wouldn't even schedule Wofford. The triple option just gives us trouble period.

Yep, you're right. I'm used to it being called 1-AA, or Division II. The whole FBS, and FCS is too confusing for this old fart.
If I were to give you a color, I'd color you green because you're money.

Not a given. I remember when Marshall made the jump...they were not able to sustain their success from Div I-AA/FCS. Kinda wish this didn't happen...their old SoCon was a great conference at one time and some of those lesser teams will fall further behind in $$.

good move by appy st. this is a logical step towards going Div 1. I think that this will give them time to get their facilities going if they decide to try to go to a larger conference. One thing I have always wondered, where do visiting teams fly into when playing in Boone? The closest commercial airports are not very close. Not that it matters, but I have always wondered...
