I agree with the article's position and cant understand why JSU would want to be in the OVC in the first place.
They have bigger fish to fry with their football program and the distance issue will never change.

They were never a good fit and they knew they were going to be the geographic outlier when they joined, so I don't know what this guy is complaining about. They're in the perfect location to get all the $EC reject transfers, which is about a quarter of their roster. Can't wait to get rid of their azzes.

Really Hoptown..and bring the pathetic ovc to yet another new low ...? JSU does a decent job in basketball and is the only creditable football team in the league when facing outside competition.

I mean didnt they take Auburn to overtime last year or was it the year before? That is a serious football team in anyone's league..

Jax State is a positive for the OVC. Why would we want to welcome them to leave the conference? They’ve won 7 conference championships in men’s and women’s sports in the past 2 years. I can understand them or their fans wanting to move to a bigger conference, but haven’t Murray fans wanted the same? A strong OVC is good for everyone

This was one columnist's opinion. No need to direct anger toward JSU from this piece, not one representative from the school was quoted.

But, yeah, not much different from us wishing we were in a better basketball conference.

I checked out the JSU board and found they are feeling somewhat between a rock and a hard place. The consensus view there seems to be they would love to move on but the Southern Conference (their most obvious option) is rated even lower than the ovc in football...Albeit not by much but not a reason to go there.

Another possibility, Conference USA brings with it a new much better level of competition. The bad news for JSU is they would an average football program in that conference with no assurance of any playoff appearances. Almost the opposite of their status in the ovc. At the moment I think JSU aint inclined to go anywhere. To bad as the the football program deserves better. There was a remark that at home ovc games the stands start emptying out at the half as most games are decided by then.

On the other hand maybe the ovc football competition will perc up..No, never mind, forget I said that. :bang:
