Didn't know if our Chanticleer fans might have any idea who the Big South might be eyeing to add the league.

I actually thought some of the Gulf South Conference members might actually get raided

Seeing as both the A Sun and the Big South have announcements tomorrow, it might be that one team is moving from one league to the other and the raided league will be adding a new team from D2.

It could be a merger. But that would be a real big conference

I wouldn't leave the A-Sun for the Big South btw. Unless I had to for my football team.

My guess is Stetson. They probably wouldn't be thrilled with basketball moving from the A-Sun to the Big South, but it gets their football into a conference that offers actual scholarships.

Reports say they aren't adding a 7th member, or dropping below 6. ASun is having an announcement tomorrow. My guess is the ASun is adding football. Kennesaw State leaves, they back fill with Campbell.

Who would be playing football in the A Sun?

Kennesaw
Jacksonville
Stetson

and who else?

Davidson as a football only?

UNF and FGCU start up? I find it odd they are making an announcement for football membership, but there is still gonna be six teams. All on the same day the ASun is having a pressed.

No clue but knowing the Big South most people probably won't consider it "major".

One theory that someone based on a remark in a master plan is that the Big South wanted to create a football only conference like MVFC or CAA football. So I think it may be some sort of partnership between the A Sun and Big South in football. I don't see a full merger just for auto bids in all sports - especially basketball.

Could just be Kennesaw State becoming an all-sports member.

EDIT - No

Seems like a good plan. Good call, rokamortis.

EDIT: I wonder if we'll see any clarification on what qualifies as "within the Big South's geographic footprint."

Thanks ... the funny thing is I thought this was basically already done when KSU added football. I recall reading an article stating that the two conferences had an agreement. A while later someone asked the Big South on records and they stated no formal agreement was in place. So I think a gentleman's agreement was in place but they've now formalized and publicized it like this is some big deal when it really isn't.

Yep. It makes sense.
