Good for them. This is going to be great for FCS Football in the Carolinas.

Playing in the Big South, NCAT will have plenty of opportunities to schedule NC Central and SCSU in OOC.

I felt the move was happening since the start of the last football season. Too many MEAC schools have questions and the conference office had no answers.

May be the beginning of the end for the MEAC. Florida A&M/Bethune-Cookman to the SWAC?

I could see Florida A&M to the SWAC. Bethune-Cookman reportedly has serious financial issues though so that one is anybody’s guess.

If the MEAC fails, I wonder what will become of NC Central. I don't see them going back down to the CIAA.

I wonder if some of the ASun stuff is almost predicated on the MEAC falling apart

The MEAC will go after Alabama State and Alabama A&M again and will finally take Virginia State seriously about their aspirations of moving up which should've been done years ago.

With the MEAC rapidly losing 3 members, I hope they consider adding Chicago St.

In Men's Basketball- between NC A&T and already departed Hampton- 22 championships in the MEAC tourney.

The rest of the league combined- 26.

MEAC down to 10 with this, Big South up to 12.

I would presume Coppin St cooking South Carolina and Norfolk St downing Missouri are the only 2 NCAA wins left.

One would assume they could join the ASUN and put football in the Big South.

RE: NC A&T to the Big South, announcement coming Friday.
An outside the box idea, some HBCUs wanted to move up to FBS. What a way to create a new conference that the would be difficult to deny by having 50% of the schools being HBCU. Just a thought.

NC A&T (HBCU)
Florida A&M (HBCU)
South Carolina State (HBCU)
Howard (HBCU)
Alcorn St. (HBCU)
Liberty
Kenasaw St.
JMU
UMASS (FO)
UCONN (FO)
