Sun Belt Communications
In light of conference realignment talk throughout the country, Sun Belt Commissioner Keith Gill released this statement on Friday.
“The Sun Belt Conference could not have positioned itself better for this moment as the landscape shifts across conferences,” Gill said. “We have never been stronger.
“The Sun Belt is the best non-autonomy FBS conference in the country. We were the only non-A5 conference with two teams ranked in both preseason polls. We finished last year with two teams ranked in the final CFP and we’ve led the FBS in postseason winning percentage the last five years.
“I spoke to our conference CEOs and ADs yesterday about the current realignment in a few FBS conferences and how it puts us in a more advantageous position for our programs to thrive. Throughout this process, if we identify a school that adds value to the Sun Belt, we’ll certainly consider them for membership.
“We feel very good about the quality of our schools, we take pride in who we are, and will continue to build our programs and our great conference.”
