Hard to disagree. Plus, I don't see the Sun Belt wanting a third team in the state of Georgia and Kennesaw would only duplicate the Atlanta market. Kennesaw is a rapidly growing school, though.

Maybe this allow North Alabama to move up from Division II. I think they've let it be known that that is their goal but need a conference for that to happen. The A-Sun needs bodies and so still does Big South football, a perfect working alliance just like it appears they will have with Kennesaw.

I tried to find the old KSU article when they announced football, but their cluttered website doesn't seem to have an archive of old stories.

I'm pretty sure that when they announced football the first words out of their mouth was that they were going to find a new conference. I think they have found out that no one wants them. I think it's great they are pushing forward, but they have quite a bit to fix before they are attractive to a new conference. No one wants to take in that basketball program plus a start up football team. The fans on here used to start posts about how they'd dominate the A-Sun by 2008.

I will be an interested observer to what happens with them, both basketball and football moving forward.

Crazy how those fans have COMPLETELY disappeared these days. We used to laugh so hard about that. I think since they moved up they had one year close to .500 (the first year) and have STUNK ever since.
They have a couple of sports they're okay in, but largely they're not competitive in anything. The one thing you could say about Ga. State was they were winning basketball games in the A-Sun. All KSU has done, I can't really think of anything they've done except lose.

I lived for a while in Smyrna near the Kennesaw State campus and went to three or four games in what was their new (and nice) arena. So it remains a headscratcher that a metro Atlanta school with apparently nice facilities struggles so much within the Atlantic Sun.

And I recall that they won a Division II national title just before arriving in the league. ... ????

What does Montevallo have to do to get a sniff from the A-Sun? We're in the metro Birmingham market (roughly 30 miles from city of Birmingham), definitely the only game in town, beautiful campus, beautiful co-eds, great academics, and good athletics too (Rusty Greer is one of our athletic alumni).

We're talking about you on the realignment section of this board, we could use you A-Sun guys input.

Still a fan of ASun.
I'm hoping to hear some serious rumors of schools the ASun might be looking to add.
I would try to add at least 4 over the next 2 to 3 years.

+1. I just have to believe that we'll hear something soon about at least two additions. As you noted, I think four is smarter as well.
