But we do need to bring in some good DII teams looking to make a move up the ladder of success. I just don't see many current DI teams that'd want to come to BSC.

I think the BSC is f*cked. Conferences that have schools that don't play all the main sports are generally unstable. Look at the old Big East they had big network contracts and they still couldn't stop from falling apart. The BSC doesn't even have that to hold us together. It needs to be a full member requirement or the school can look elsewhere.

RE: New BSC Members
The Big South is a collection of poor, private schools for the most part. It sucks for Liberty to be a part of that but the conference has been overachieving lately (ironically while Liberty has worsened). Expanding the footprint will probably do more harm than good as far as finances go. Existing schools adding football is probably not going to happen, though the non-football schools such as Winthrop, UNC Asheville, and High Point typically carry their weight in men's basketball so it's hard to criticize them. Presbyterian is pretty much dead weight though but they participate in football which makes them important for the auto-bid.

Honestly I think for now this is a good deal for both conferences. The auto bid is super important to LU and with Chadwell gone at CSU should be yalls yearly.
