    Big South…Big Trouble!

    If Monmouth truly is CAA-bound, coupled with Kennesaw and TUNA going to the ASUN, then Big South football is in big trouble. Probably need to be in touch with SC State and NC Central to have any relevance moving forward.

    Big South Football this Fall???

    Campbell
    Charleston Southern
    Gardner-Webb
    Hampton
    NC A&T
    Robert Morris

    EEK! 5 privates, 2 HBCUs, and 1 Public School.

    I don't think the Big South will end up inviting programs from another conference that will cause another conference to go below 6 schools. If anything, I suspect that the Big South will be in touch with a few Gulf South or SAC Schools to bolster their football membership.​

    That would be interesting. Several SAC schools are in great proximity to other full (Big South) members but they are all tiny private schools. North Greenville is a GSC football affiliate in the geographic footprint but, similar to the SAC, is very small. I don't think any of those schools are really looking to move to D1.

    That said, one that sticks out to me as a solid D2 call-up for the Big South would be West Georgia from the GSC.

    If the MEAC broke apart,

    Del State, Morgan State --> NEC
    Howard --> Patriot
    South Carolina State, NC Central, Norfolk State --> Big South

    So leave one tenuous situation to go and save the BS? Nah. We're good.

    Of the six current remaining, only Campbell and NC A&T would have any possible chance of a SoCon invite in the future, with A&T having the better chance of the two.

    I think as long as the Celebration Bowl tie-in remains, the MEAC will do whatever it can to stay intact.
