I thought the ASUN and Big South came to some kind of agreement?

The ASUN really just needs to merge into the Big South and be done with it. Still hate ETSU was in that league for 10 years.

The ASun and a big south agreement was in the hopes that any teams moving up that had football would join the ASun, then play football in the Big south. Upstate just didn’t want anything to do with the travel of the ASUN anymore.

Liberty is joining the ASUN. Interesting but apparently only choice. I wonder if the SoCon and CAA were ever considered? If Liberty strikes it big in football, they wont be there long.

In my humble opinion — these sort of moves only undergird the good decision it was for ETSU to return to the SoCon where all of its teams can play within excellent footprint travel destinations. The SoCon needs to close ranks even more and hang tough until a time comes for another shake up. Hopefully, a compact geographic conference of regional universities can emerge one day that includes ETSU. Until then, the Sun Belt is really not attractive now given the added expense and mostly unrecognizable opponents in distant places.
