Georgia State is calling some of its donors to invite them to a 2 p.m. press conference scheduled for Monday at the Georgia Dome. The press conference will presumably focus on the Sun Belt Conference. Panthertalk.com reported Saturday that donors are being told the press conference will be “life-changing for the athletics department.”
Karl Benson, the conference’s commissioner, said on Friday that he will be at Georgia State on Monday to discuss conference membership with university president Mark Becker and athletic director Cheryl Levick. A text to Benson on Saturday hasn’t been returned. A Georgia State spokesperson declined to comment.
