Some Montana and NDSU fans think they belong in the MWC too.  A new Summit would split the difference.

MWC? Hell Bison fans think they belong in the SEC.

Screw the SEC.  SV talks about aligning with like-minded institutions.  Lets skip the SDSU, MSU and Idaho talk, small potatoes.  Lets shoot for the land grants of Iowa State, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.  Big 12 here we come.  We're practically family now with wrestling. :)

If thats the case, Big 10 here we come. We used to be conference mates with Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Michigan State.

Officially. South Carolina-Upstate moves to the Big South next year.    Liberty probably move to the Atlantic Sun.  Will be interesting if other FCS schools like E Kentucky, Jacksonville St, JMU, Delaware, Stony Brook and Albany that have wanted FBS move too.  The A Sun may just be a future FBS league.  Lipscomb would move to the OVC and NJIT to the America East if it happens.

Kennesaw St has always intended to be FBS and there is talk North Florida and FGCU also want the option.  A Florida presence is critical for recruiting.  FCS would take a major hit.

They don't have a football team.

 Big South football is on life support.  Kennesaw St wants to go bigger.  Presbyterian College wants to go non-scholarship. The Big South needs to sponsor a non scholarship league and get Stetson, Jacksonville, Davidson and Morehead St fb aboard.  Then maybe Upstate takes the plunge, as Upstate isn't a big public school, but fb is so important down here.

The A Sun could be an FBS league before this is over, as E Kentucky and Jacksonville St could have a conference to go to.  JMU, Delaware, Stony Brook, and Albany could follow and then FCS would be just a shell of its former self.

Hampton is holding a press conference tomorrow to announce the it will join the Big South and leaving the MEAC.  Big South football will survive for the time being.

Hampton has eyes on the CAA so this move is just getting used to a non-HBCU conference.  Howard could be a CAA team too, but Howard has much more academic credentials.  So if schools are positioning themselves for the CAA, some movement will take place in the CAA.
