In our FOIA request, we received a thread of e-mails between Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson and JMU Athletic Director Jeff Bourne. Well, the word “between” might be a little strong.

So, from February 20, 2013 at 1:45 PM through February 25, 2013 at 9:52 AM, Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson sent JMU Athletic Director Jeff Bourne 4 e-mails and Bourne did not respond once. Sounds like JMU is, in fact, not interested to me.

The first 3 e-mails had attached the proposed 2014 Sun Belt Conference map we disclosed previously.

*Note: we blocked out Benson’s phone numbers
