That's the craziest situation I've ever heard of.

What an embarrassment it will be if 7th seed, APR deficient Stetson can win the ASun tournament. So glad the Bucs have moved on.

Gulf Coast wins. In Stetson's defense, they had coaching turmoil that screwed with their APR due to transfers. They needed 930, they had a 929. They'll probably be fine next year.

RE: Interesting situation in the ASUN
I ran across an old email last week. It was a message from me to the sports editor at the JC Press, decrying the just-announced move to the ASun.

He responded, saying the ASun was a superior conference with a much brighter future.

Consider the source. He was probably best buddies with Mullins.

If it's who I think it was, he no longer works there.

RE: Interesting situation in the ASUN
Florida Gulf Coast would be smart to look at a move to the Sun Belt or some other conference. ETSU was smart enough to go back to the Southern Conference. Belmont moved to the Ohio Valley Conference.

For better or worse, that conference could easily collapse within the next few years, unless several other teams don't move up toe NCAA D1, or unless another conference doesn't collapse out of nowhere.

They've been shopping everywhere. They don't play football, so outside of the Missouri Valley, Summitt, Horizon, A-10, etc... they don't have anything to offer. And none of those are really feasible for either FGCU or those conferences.
Big difference in the cost of land and construction in Johnson City vs. Naples.

RE: Interesting situation in the ASUN
Both FGCU and North Florida want to get football going as soon as they can to get out of the ASUN. I'd imagine the Big South might pick them up if they add football.

RE: Interesting situation in the ASUN
Neither have the money, and UNF's president is sort of open to it after making them agree not to add football as a condition to move to division I
