After the SoCon meetings this past weekend, the newspapers have been silent. I have it on good account that UNCW, Winthrop and Coastal are the front runners right now for what the SoCon is saying will be 3 spots that are now open.

if this were to happen, then i would imagine the divisions would be something like this:


NORTH
winthrop
utc
app st.
wcu
davidson
elon
uncg

SOUTH
uncw
coc
the citadel
furman
wofford
coastal carolina
ga southern

so uncw goes from playing 5 va schools and 1 ga school on a regular basis, with some northern schools occasionally to playing 5 sc schools and 1 ga school with some instate games occasionally.

i would rather stay in the caa.

If this were true I would imagine that the NC and SC schoosl would all be grouped together.

If the SoCon were to add these schools, why did they boot ETSU? UNCW's move would be down, Winthrop is a nobody and Coastal is a joke.

I agree. I don't think UNCW would come, but if the SoCon is gonna do this, why not bring back ETSU, and then go get Winthrop (another Charlotte market school) and Coastal ( great away football game).

The information provided has stated that UNCW approached the SoCon after their administration was extremely unhappy with the CAA expansion.

Adding Winthrop to the SoCon would be nothing put pluses for the conference.
