What?

That didn’t tell me anything except the SIAC is a HBCU conference.

It said “refer to the SIAA”, which was called the SIAC at one point.

Regardless, ALL of those teams were NOT conference mates. His post is misleading.

I see that at the top of the SIAC article, it says the SIAA was also called the SIAC, but there's nothing in the SIAA article that mentions that. My point is that the defunct conference that lasted from 1894-1942 and spawned the SoCon was officially known as the SIAA (not the SIAC), and the existing conference that started in 1913 and consists largely of HBCUs is officially known as the SIAC.

My apologies. I misread your post as he is “correct”!

How I wish realignment went:

Rewind to 1996:

ACC adds BC, Cuse, Pitt, Rutgers, WVU, VT, & Miami

SEC adds Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor

Big Ten adds Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa St

PAC 10 adds Utah, BYU, Colorado, and Colorado St

That’s a legit P4. A few schools get left out: Temple, Louisville, Cincy, K St, Okla St, Houston, TCU, Rice, SMU but you could probably put together a nice C-USA from the remnants.

Nah, rewind to 1978, and over time the following expansions take place:

ACC adds Boston College, Miami-FL, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina (back), Syracuse, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia

Big Ten adds Colorado, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Notre Dame; renamed Big 16

Pac-10 adds Colorado State, Houston, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Utah; renamed Pac-16

SEC adds Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech (back), Louisville, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State
