Great question, because right now it the Big South is VA to SC (GA if you count KSU) and a few of the schools rumored are in Florida.

Yeah, I didn't realize until I checked it out earlier that the Big South's footprint is technically pretty darn limited.

I left Monmouth intentionally as an associate in neither conference but now it is clear - Monmouth to the A-Sun as a travel partner for NJIT.

I've often thought that UWG & VSU might make good candidates for the BS Conference.

I've thought this about VSU. Unfortunately they have a Sam Baker equivalent...maybe even more so. They've had a lot of success at the D2 level and the administration just talks about how much extra money it will cost to make a move up whenever the questions arise (which happens every year or so). They continue to play in Valdosta High Schools stadium in hopes that they will one day abandon it for a stadium that's actually close to their campus (VHS's stadium is basically on VSU's campus currently). The stadium can hold close to 15k people and if the away side can definitely be expanded at some point.

This big announcement was basically nothing. No new teams are immediately added to the conference and it's unknown if the Jacksonville or Stetson will ever add schollies. Big to do about nothing.

UWG football is improving, their facilities are good enough for a move, their location is a little far to the west, but serviced by an interstate. I think they'd make a fine addition to the

Well, not that much, but when I have, UWG comes to mind

The Liberty beat writer said that the geographic footprint referenced is basically the current Big South including affiliate members and current A-Sun. So the contiguous states along the coast from New Jersey to Florida plus Tennessee.

Hmm...cool, that really opens things up then.

Agreed. I see a fair amount of support for them.

Ehh it doesnt take much to be though. UWG or Valdosta could compete at the FCS level. FCS conferences should be very geographic centric to cut down costs as much as possible.

That was my thought. Big South wont say no to any affiliate anywhere. At best, this just means the ASun teams are the Big South's, but I doubt the SoCon would be that pressed for those teams.
