Temple University Conference Realignment

You can go home again. And in more desperate times for the Big East, Temple was able to get something they couldn’t in the past: all-sports membership. Temple had been part of the Big East discussions ever since the defections of Syracuse and Pitt. But when the Big East opted for UCF, Houston and SMU […]

Majerus, St. Louis Not Happy in A10

Jan 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Atlantic 10 Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, school news

My take is simple: if you have problems with your administration, don’t use the media…keep it behind the scenes. You can bet that Majerus would not be complaining about “east coast airports” if St. Louis were in the Big East instead of Marquette. The Billikens would still have to fly to 12 east coast cities […]

Fordham is seeking a conference home and Stonybrook currently participates as an associate member in the Big South. If such expansion to 16 teams happened, ideally the division members would play all 7 other […]

There was an interesting line in an article covering an interview with outgoing Rhode Island president Robert Carothers:“Money has become a huge issue, as in every other department, because of a reduction in state assistance and the overall economic situation. It is likely to lead, Carothers feels, to a change in conference alignments soon, not […]

Hofstra Return to America East / AE Football Rumblings

Mar 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Atlantic 10 Expansion & Realignment, CAA Expansion & Realignment, expansion, Featured News

For years now, there have been rumblings from Hofstra fans about leaving the CAA. The rationale being that since joining the CAA in 2002, the athletic programs have suffered from being one of the only northern teams in a predominantly southern conference.
