There needs to be a little time to let the dust settle from CCU's departure, and a gauge of how long Monmouth stays, and what D2 moves ups are interested, and if any MEAC teams want to join the BSC, which is likely the only other FCS conference which may be attracted to the BSC. Lots of moving parts now that will come clearer into focus in the near future.

BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE EXPANSION
When do the MEAC and Big South set their conference football schedules? This could drag into March or April and still be effective for the 2016-17 academic year (the first year without Coastal).

Hampton University would be a great add!!!

Good in football/hoops. Good recruiting area. Another beach to visit - buckroe beach. Even a nice place to host the conference tournament.

I hope that the Big South makes this happen!

RE: BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE EXPANSION
Wouldn't Hampton be taking a pay cut if they did that?

Probably not. The only real downfall is if alumni revolt against the decision and football attendance and donations drop substantially. The Big South in could offer marginally better travel (no conference games in south Georgia or northeast Florida) but that alone wouldn't be a reason to move.

Big South Football 2017?

Monmouth (football only)
Liberty
Gardner-Webb
Campbell
Presbyterian
Charleston Southern
North Alabama (football only)
Kennesaw State (football only)
Jacksonville (football only)

If Jacksonville leaves the Pioneer League, Stetson may also not be far behind.

The Pioneer League will live on, with Butler, Davidson, Dayton, Drake, Marist, Morehead State, and Valparaiso holding down the fort.

In the event the PFL disbands, Marist would probably head to the NEC (low-scholarship league), Morehead State would find a get its football program into the OVC with its other sports. Davidson would probably wind up in the Big South. The four Midwestern schools would probably try to affiliate with either the MVFC (legally separate from the MVC, but of course Drake would head there) or OVC (which would still have two non-football members).

RE: BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE EXPANSION
Is there anyone one this Big South site who has inside connections and can keep the board informed about future realignment?

The only members that post on the Big South boards are Liberty. Others would be welcomed, if they exists.
