CAA Expanding with Monmouth, Stony Brook and Hampton
Quote:RE: Monmouth to Colonial for Football?
Anyway, I can confirm the original Monmouth rumor...hearing this is actually for all sports. This is part of a much larger expansion plan that would bring the CAA to 14 basketball schools...I'll share the full list as soon as I can get it confirmed by everybody. There was a surprising ( to me, anyway) name on it.


looks like there will be more to come

Sounds like Monmouth is coming for sure.

This Matt Brown guy has been pretty accurate in his reporting the past year

Monmouth coming in would be good. I'm still not convinced UNCG would make a move to the CAA.

Regardless, I'll believe all of this kind of chatter when something is actually announced from the conference. Until then, it's constant rumor mill and wish listing.

If Brown hadn't said anything I wouldnt have started the thread. He is a legit reporter and it sounds like the plan is pretty far along.

He said there would be a surprise school and to me that would be UNCG

Monmouth, Big South or American East schools wouldn't be that big a surprise.

If the CAA convinced UNCG to jump that would be a big suprise.

Its Claflin.

Once Claflin joins we will never have to worry about a stoppage again.

Lol. I'm just messing with you dude. It's entertaining. I think we've talked about this topic like 1,000 times. The last time being when JMU announced they were leaving then got butt hurt that the CAA handed them the same "don't let the door hit you on the way out" cared they signed off on giving to other schools that left the conference.

And y’all didn’t even bring up the elephant in the room. Can will still call our Seahawks simply the Hawks for short? That could get confusing for some!

I see Campbell and UNCG both coming to the CAA. Beyond that, I really don't care.

Ironically here, I believe the MAAC has the same outdated type of rule that the CAA does, thus them being tight-lipped about announcing, not wanting to be ineligible for conference championships going on currently.

I am sure that Claflin is at least as effective as cloth face masks and other stoppage 'protocols'.

But be careful - if word gets out how well Claflin works , they will try to call it "Horse Dewormer University" and then ban you from all social media....

Queens University, although it only has 1700 students. It has a tiny campus and many of their athletics fields/facilities are miles from campus.

The good news is it's in the richest/safest neighborhood in Charlotte. It would be a great place to attend road games with pre and post game receptions.

So is Hampton the “surprise” team? I’ve heard them mentioned before. This isn’t incredibly surprising.

This isn’t exactly the expansion we were all hoping for.

So the CAA didn't have a great plan in place for expansion? Shocker. And to think I was told on this board that it is the best place for UNCW to be right now.

Interesting since Stony Brook already has football, which means they make room for a non football school addition if they come on board. If these were full adds, we would have 11 CAA football schools and 12 basketball schools. Add one more team with football and one without football and you are to 12 in CAA football and 14 in basketball.

Basketball

North - Hofstra, NU, Stony Brook, Monmouth, Drexel, Delaware, Towson
South - CofC, UNCW, Elon, W&M, Hampton, UNCG, Campbell

Now, I am not at all excited about adding any of those northern schools or Hampton, but if we could bring on Campbell and UNCG to create a South division i'm good.

So. The CAA is adding Hampton (likely for sure), hoping to get Stony Brook and Monmouth.

The rest is speculation and fan hope.

Bottom line…

This conference is trash and getting worse.
