Interesting situation in the ASUN
#7 Stetson will play #4 FGCU in the ASUN Championship game. FGCU beat league leading UNF by 33 points to advance to the finals. However, Stetson is ineligible for the NCAA tournament so if they manage to beat FGCU, UNF will receive the automatic bid.

Still can't believe that ETSU stumbled into this league back then. Nothing to do with the schools in this conference -- all due respect to them. But, ETSU was an alien here and lost a decade while wasting precious millions.

Why is Stetson ineligible?

That explains why they've been so dominant in athletics all these years.

All kidding aside, why did they even let them PLAY in the conference tournament if they're ineligible for the NCAA tournament? When D II schools moves up over the years, I assumed they didn't play in the conference tournament because they weren't eligible for the big dance. Doesn't make much sense to me.

The A-Sun period never made any sense to me.

This article explains the situation. Pretty dumb decision, and doing stuff like this will get you fired in other jobs.

RE: Interesting situation in the ASUN
The A-sun tries to fend off criticism due to "multiple national media inquiries":

The real story is, IMO, they don't have enough teams in that conference to have a real tournament. If you throw out Stetson, you only have 7 teams left, which means another team either has to sit out, or the 6 vs 7 game has to be a "play-in" game. The other schools wouldn't like that, hence why they let Stetson go ahead and play.

Bottom line is, this conference is on life support.
