MEAC Expansion – Savannah St. Close to Joining…NCCU as well

Savannah State’s long wait for conference affiliation could soon be over.

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference lifted a moratorium on expansion last week, according to SSU vice president for administration Claud Flythe. The move clears the way for the presidents of the MEAC’s 12 universities to vote on Savannah State’s membership.

“In the near future, they will vote on who gets in,” Flythe said. “If we are accepted, we would become a full member immediately.”

MEAC officials are mum on the situation. The league’s communications office referred all questions to the commissioner, Dennis Thomas, and Thomas did not return telephone calls or respond to e-mails.

Immediate membership could make Savannah State eligible for league titles in every sport except football. The MEAC’s 2009 football schedule is already set – as is Savannah State’s, which has not been released – while those in other sports won’t be completed until later this year.

    I do hope this is the case, if for nothing else just so Savannah State isn’t left in the dark anymore. This would really go a long way to improving their programs and making them somewhat competitive.

    quick note…if these moves happen, there will be no FCS schools left without a conference.
