FBS A-10 North: (*non-football member)
George Washington*/Delaware (CAA)
Massachussets/Fordham*
Xavier*/Dayton*
Temple

Three of the five non-football members are needed for 6/5 compliance. In the event Xavier and Dayton are nabbed by a post-split Big East, the conference can stay at twelve schools.

The FCS CAA absorbs the remainder of the A-10, but donates Richmond and UNC-Wilmington to the SoCon:

FCS CAA North:
La Salle*/St. Joseph's*
St. Bonaventure*/Hofstra
Rhode Island/Northeatern

FCS CAA South:
Towson/William & Mary
George Mason*/VCU*
Duquesne*/Drexel*

Maine, New Hampshire, and Villanova continue their football-only membership, while Stony Brook removes its football program from the Big South.

The SoCon gets Richmond and UNC-Wilmington for its efforts:

FCS SoCon North:
Richmond/UNC-Wilmington*
Elon/UNC-Greensboro*
Western Carolina/Davidson*

FCS SoCon South:
Samford/Chattanooga
The Citadel/College of Charleston
Wofford/Furman

Not bad. Some pretty good ideas in there.

If you want to try to turn the A-10 into an FBS conference, you might also want to bring in Buffalo&Temple as a pair from the MAC. I know Delaware has been FBS-ready for years and years but chose to remain in the CAA, so that was a smart addition. ODU & Ga. State, I believe, are thinking FBS. I'd probably keep UMass (which is studying a jump to FBS) & Rhode Island as a pair and take out Fordham and perhaps George Washington. St. Joe's has one of the best reputations as a basketball school (they were a 1-seed a couple years ago) and I'd strongly consider them for basketball-only. Saint Louis has invested a lot in their basketball - with a new state-of-the art 10k seat arena (which is sure to sell out) to replace the cavernous 20k arena they hired a HOF coach in Rick Majerus but I'm not sure where they'll end up. The MVC wants them in the worst way and I can't say I blame them. I dunno about Ga. Southern or James Madison. I think Richmond would rather hang themselves than join the SoCon. They may have lost games in recent years, but they're still on a solid enough foundation.

Interesting to say the least - you got my ol' noggin' spinning. Not a bad conversation-starter.
