    SWAC/MEAC/HBCU 2018 Offseason Thread

    Since there aren't many HBCU posters on the board it'll be easier to put our offseason news under one thread.

    Any rumors of HBCU schools moving to new conferences or up or down in classification?

    The only wild card in the schedule is Hampton. The Pirates, who have been MEAC title contenders in recent years, in November announced a move to the Big South, to be completed in July. A source in FAMU's athletic department said the Pirates are looking to immediately drop their MEAC schedule.
    Interesting. Real interesting.

    Nothing really. There has been rumblings on Virginia State possibly moving up to join the MEAC but that's about it.

    Thatís kind of crappy to leave the rest of the league in the lurch like that.

    I'm not an expert on scheduling, but how can Hampton get by with that? Don't they normally have to wait at least a year? Pretty hard to fill in those open dates for MEAC teams. Isn't there at least a monetary penalty?

    My guess would be there is some type of monetary penalty. Hampton had been a pain in the arse of the MEAC for some time and many members were ready for them and pain in the arse number 2 aka Delaware State to kick rocks.

    They can do it as we've been rotating two teams off the schedule since SSU joined. It's possible they could do it especially since a exit fee has to be negotiated between Hampton and the MEAC Co-Ceo's. There isn't a set exit fee in the by-laws.
