D2 schools and their likely targets.

Bellarmine- Horizon/Big South/A-Sun/OVC/Southern
Lincoln Memorial-A-Sun/Big South
West Florida-A-Sun
Tarleton State-Southland
Francis Marion-A-Sun
Western Washington-WAC
West Texas A&M-Southland/WAC
Southern Indiana-Horizon/OVC
Valdosta State-A-Sun
Delta State-Southland
Central State, Ohio-OVC
West georgia A-Sun
Central Oklahoma-Southland
Indiana, PA.-Big South (Robert Morris could join as a pair.)
Kentucky State-OVC
CSU-Pueblo-Big Sky/WAC
Grand Valley State-MVFC/Horizon
Texas A&M-Commerce-Southland
Texas A&M-Kingsville-Southland
Southern New Hampshire-NEC
Academy of ARt-WAC
Wayne State Michigan-Horizon (There were interests between the 2 between 2000 and 2010, but with Oakland close be, they could not move in. If Oakland leaves? Wayne State could be the logic replacement. Wayne State could move their football into MVFC.)

If Louisiana can not merged the schools? They may have to forced them all except for LSU into a conference as one to cut spending. If the FBS schools stays? The Southland could be forced to form two conferences. I think that NCAA might give the new conference as a waiver because they are forced into it. Could the Texas schools be renamed Southwest Conference to revive the name?

Louisiana schools would might look like this for travel reasons.

McNeese State
Nicholls State
Southeastern State
NW State LA.
Arkansas Tech
New Orleans
Jackson State
Delta State

SWAC needs three replacements, plus if Texas Southern and Prairie View to the SWC?
Albany State
Savannah State
Florida A&M
Alabama State
Alabama A&M
Alcorn State
Mississippi Valley State
Lemoyne-Owen in Memphis
Fort Valley State

Corpus Christie
Sam Houston State
Texas Southern
Houston Baptist
Abilene Christin
Incarnate Word
Prairie View A&M
Central Oklahoma
West Texas A&M
Tarleton State

Future UTPB, Midwestern State, Angelo State, Rogers State, UAFS, and Oklahoma Baptist.

MEAC needs to find teams.
Central State, Ohio
Kentucky State
Bowie State
Virginia State

Kentucky State could grow in the MEAC and join the OVC just like Tennessee State. It could help their school out to be in OVC.

I think OVC adds Southern Indiana (new arena soon) the minute they lose Murray St. OVC relocated its tourney from Nashville to Evansville and made quotes about tapping into that market.

UC SAN DIEGO JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THEY WILL BE JOINING THE BIG WEST CONFERENCE ALONG WITH CAL ST BAKERSFIELD. I ALSO FEEL THAT THE WHOLE CCAA Conference should move up to divison I due to the big student body they have and also having multiple sports

Sorry, you're a week late with the breaking news. Some schools in the CCAA have large enrollments but they probably don't have the finances available to move up.

But im sure those schools can try to have a good athletic program in the future.
