BIG SOUTH CONFERENCE EXPANSION
UPDATE: Longwood joins Big South Conference
[Image: longwood%2Blancers.jpeg]

FARMVILLE, Va. --
Longwood University on Monday afternoon announced at an on-campus press conference that it will become the Big South Conference’s 12th member on July 1. The league also includes Virginia schools VMI, Radford and Liberty.

The Lancers have competed on the Division I level since 2007, but have done so as an independent. Longwood’s inclusion in the Big South will limit travel time and allow access to league championships and automatic bids to NCAA championships, among other advantages

The BSC has major problems now. One of it's top programs is leaving plus a football member. And Liberty is wanting to get out as soon as possible. To keep the conference intact, I believe they would take anyone at this point, as full or football only members.

How about this:
Campbell, Charleston Southern, Gardner Webb, Jacksonville, Kennessaw State, Liberty, Monmouth, Presbyterian, Stetson for football?

Chuck South, Kennessaw South, Liberty, Monmouth, Presby and Gardner Webb at present. Some posters from West Georgia have promoted them as a member. They do have a 10,000, and from the web, they do seem possible as a candidate. Stetson is in Deland, FL and does have an upside. I'm lukewarm on Campbell.

Campbell is already a member of the conference for all other sports.

Could Campbell potentially drop any men's sports to reinvest in football? It looks like they have ten men's sports, so if they drop soccer, wrestling, indoor track, and outdoor track, that keeps them at six men's sports and frees up 26.4 scholarships - Campbell would need 5.1 more (50% of 63 = 31.5) for football to count towards Division I membership requirements, and 30.6 more to count towards bowl eligibility for their FBS opponents.
