JSU football moving up?

Twice this week The Star has published stories about Jacksonville State University having preliminary discussions about elevating its football team to the Football Bowl Series, formerly Division I-A.

It's very early in the process -- but not too early to have Gamecock fans divided over the issue of taking the JSU team to the top level of NCAA play.

Saturday's editorial page will carry an editorial that examines the need for patience in JSU's discussions. It's a complex situation that involves much more than athletics. Hopefully our editorial will help explain why JSU needs to carefully deliberate its options before charging ahead.
