Conference Realignment
I know it would be a stretch but any chance Campbell makes a leap anytime soon to a different conference? Atlantic 10 could be looking as well as SoCon which we already have a relationship with.

I know we have a limited TV market which could hold us back but when I see UNCC start a football program and immediately jump from the Atlantic 10 to C-USA it gives me hope. I know their TV market is great.

RE: Conference Realignment
Really intrigued with the SoCon right now. CofC is gone next year. The next dominoes, according to message board chatter, could be GaSouthern and App moving which might lead to even more leaving.

It would be a real shame for us if the SoCon didn't show any interest in bringing Campbell in as a replacement. 35 years in D-1, a presence in the Raleigh/Fay area, improving facilities and academics (med school, etc) should be attractive.

Along with the SoCon's situation, throw in Big South football only having the minimum 6 members after StonyBrook's departure and it gets more interesting.

What is the talk about App? Moving to FBS for football and therefore moving conferences?

RE: Conference Realignment
Latest message board chatter.....

ETSU will add football and its a "done deal" that the Southern Conference will add ETSU, Mercer, and either North Florida or Kennesaw State.

Someone posted on ETSU's board that the Big South (with only 6 fb schools) wanted ETSU if they added football, but ETSU said no. Makes me wonder when this occurred....before the BSC added Longwood to get to 12 all-sports schools or was the Big South willing to go to 13 after after the addition of Longwood?

No current talk of anyone leaving or joining the Big South, but with the BSC football situation (at only 6 schools), stay tuned....

RE: Conference Realignment
The NCAA has turned into a move up(conference affliliation) or fall by the wayside league. I find it hard to believe that the BSC isnt pressuring CU to go scholly football and join BSC. With loss of Stony Brook and potentially others im sure they are putting feelers out. I wonder since Mr. Roller spent time at Samford in SOCON if hes lobbying for CU to join SOCON.

RE: Conference Realignment
I'm not sure if this has any effect on the football situation or not, but does Title IX have anything to do with it? Is it because we'd have to add another women's scholarship program as well? Also, scholarships would cost a lot of money for football. Would the school considering cutting a sport that doesn't bring in as much money? Just some food for thought...

RE: Conference Realignment
I thought that with the women's lax and swimming that balanced the Title IX numbers. There aren't many other realistic sports to add except maybe for field hockey. I think it's more of a money issue (50-60 scholarships are a lot!). I would love to see us move up to SoCon but I think the CAA may also be a fit, if we are to realign.

RE: Conference Realignment
While I'm here, given the apparent movement of Xavier and Butler from the A-10 to the new Catholic league, what could this potentially mean to Campbell? I imagine the A-10 tries to go after some regional schools that could be in our neighborhood (SoCon and CAA come to mine) which would open us slots for us. Has anyone heard any new news on this front?

Just heard last week(from reliable CU source) that the home side of the football stadium as been redesigned(bigger and bigger press box), due to the fact that "when" we play BSC scholly football it would work. it would also work for socon "if" we were to recieve an invite. i do know that the BSC is pressuring CU for the move to scholly football.
