Division 1 College Conference Realignment

Recommended Posts

But that article is talking about football and non football schools, say these leagues just start splitting off into such conferences then even getting to 12-14 will require poaching a more shuffling. More teams moving up into div 1 are they not? Can fight the inabilible...

I don't think you quite grasped what that article was saying. Try it again.

Didn't Idaho play in the Sun Belt in football just a few years ago?

Ayup. And New Mexico State was a full member at the same time.

I'm surprised by the Sun Belt, actually. They're also gaining FCS powers Appalachian State and Georgia Southern in a couple years. Coupled with semi-good-and-occasionally-great teams like ULM and Arkansas State, the Sun Belt is becoming a decent mid-major conference.

EDIT: Someone beat me to it.... I wonder how long till the CAA deathwatch goes into effect, the only other rumblings I keep hearing is JMU is next to leave.

So does anybody realy think navy is gonna stick around in the "America 12" conference or they leave before 2015 and say oh UMASS get the spot? Great way to piss off your last northeast school(uconn). So how soon do uconn, Cincy and USF leave? And who replaces the teams leaving the CAA & SoCon? What's the rumor on where JMU is going, A-10 I assume?

Tulsa joining The Conference Formerly Known as Big East in 2014.

So with the rumored "America 12" at 12 in 2015, makes ya wonder who Conference USA will try poaching this time. My guess is Georgia State or Texas State from the Sun Belt (maybe both).

CUSA is taking Western Kentucky, or at least that has been the presumption for months.

The domino after that is that JMU or Delaware will enter the Sun Belt, per the rumor mill. If either of those happen, I'll be 100x happier with the move to FBS ball.

Rumor I heard was JMU is going to go to the MAC in Football while possibly going to the A-10 in the rest of the sports or just MAC all together, JMU wants to upgrade their program, I wouldn't be surprised if Delaware does the same. Same rumblings kept going on with Montana going to Mountain West & the WAC before the WAC died out.

The MAC is not going to take James Madison.
