Longwood University Longwood to Join Big SouthAfter upgrading to Division 1 during the 2003-2004 season, and passed over for year, Longwood has finally found a Division 1 home. Longwood will announce today that they have joined the Big South. The conference has always made the most sense for Longwood, with nearby VMI, Radford and Liberty as members. Not sponsoring football was always one of the issues as to why Longwood had less appeal, but that has changed. With Longwood set to join the Big South, the conference now has some more balance: 4 members in Virginia (Longwood, Liberty, Radford, VMI), 4 members in North Carolina (UNC-Ashville, Presbyterian, Campbell, Gardner-Webb) and 4 in South Carolina (Charleston Southern, Coastal Carolina, High Point, Winthrop).

    Cal-State Bakersfield is officially the last independent in Division I history. I hope they can find a conference soon enough.
