They should have never been D-I to begin with.

Welcome to the SWAC Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M. This would hurt the two Florida schools since Savannah State was the only MEAC school close to them.

WJCL 22 News has learned that Savannah State University will drop all sports from NCAA Division I to NCAA Division II in Fall 2019. Sources telling Sports Director Frank Sulkowski that the move is a financial one. Unless a substantial influx of money comes into the SSU Athletic Department, the move will occur.

Much needed. They were an example of how not to move up.

This move is about 15 years in the making. I don't ever recall a season when SSU football was competitive, but haven't really paid any attention lately. Probably goes for all their teams, as well.


Chicago St, you're on deck.

Savannah State is a relatively recent addition to the MEAC, so I wouldn't bet on it.

For what it's worth, South Carolina State is closer to Bethune-Cookman than Alabama State, and Baltimore (Morgan State, Coppin State) is closer than Prairie View A&M and Texas Southern. Obviously Florida A&M could gain a little with the Alabama/Mississippi schools, but none of the SWAC schools are in the Eastern Time Zone.

If Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman do go anywhere, it should be the Atlantic Sun, but that move will happen only if the MEAC or Atlantic Sun is on the verge of going under as a conference.
