Appalachian State: The athletics feasibility committee at Appalachian State voted Monday to recommend to the Chancellor that they seek membership in the FBS. The committee noted that the time is right for Appalchian to make it's intention known (while they did not directly reference the copious amounts of TV money being thrown around right now, we're pretty sure that wasn't lost on the committee).
