Big South Expansion News

Category: Big South Expansion & Realignment, expansion, Featured News

Not news here if you read the earlier post, but the Big South made it official: Stony Brook is in. The Big south plans to petition the NCAA for an automatic bid by 2010. The Big South will now have a conference total of 7 teams with the addition of Presbyterian College.

There is a 2pm press conference scheduled for Tuesday, in which the Big south is expected to announce that Stony Brook will join as an associate member for football. It was thought originally that Albany would join as well, but it appears that might not be the case, with only Stony Brook joining. We’ll know more in a day, but I wouldn’t expect anything too shocking. Fans have been hoping for expansion with a school such as ETSU (more favorable than West Georgia to some) , but appears this one is for football only.
