This might be the most relevant point I've read on this subject.

RE: KSU vs ETSU- Future Plans
There are two reasons why Kennesaw would work in the SoCon. Chattanooga and Ga. Southern. That's it. You have to recognize what the SoCon has done with their last several expansions.
Samford
CofC
Davidson
Wofford.
What do these schools have in common? They're all private schools. When App leaves, that leaves very few public schools left. What's their purpose of staying? Western Carolina will be better suited in the Big South as will UNC-G, it's a lateral move that puts aligns them with more Carolina based institutions. That leaves Chattanooga and Ga. Southern as the only true public schools left. And yes I realize The Citadel takes federal money but they operate more like a private school than they do a public. All of a sudden the SoCon isn't that appealing overrall for one, and two they're not going to look at a high enrollment public institution when it simply doesn't align with what they're doing, especially when KSU doesn't give great basketball and football would be 5-10 years away from being competitive. Everything boils down to who moves up from FCS to FBS, Division II to Division I and how many more state universities in the south that aren't playing football start playing football.

My hope is that App goes to the Sun Belt. Then I'm hoping the Sun Belt wants one more non football school to balance things out. ETSU would be a great travel partner to App.

You can hope in one hand and crap in another. Lets see which hand gets filled first.

C of C is actually a public school, for what it's worth.

Owls are looking pretty good. New coach. New system. They have a few years to allow it to develop then comes football. How many years does barrow have left on his contract? Oh that's right it doesn't matter. You're in the asun therefore you're stuck with him for life!
