As you all know, Central State is moving to NCAA Division II. But right now, it does not have a home for all sports. Football plays in the Great Lakes Football Conference, but that is all.

I suggest and support a move to the SIAC, where they would fit right in with other HBCUs. They are close to the KY border and would have a rival in Kentucky State.

Discuss any potential conference moves for Central State here.

Although it wouldn't be as good of an institutional fit, the Great Lakes Valley Conference is losing SIU-Edwardsville to Division I, so Central State should move in as the 14th school once the Cougars leave. Even if NKU leaves, Central State is close enough to Indianapolis (about 2 hours, 15 minutes) to be geographically cohesive.

There are also quite a few road trips in the SIAC that are longer than all of the road trips Central State would have as a member of the GLVC, such as Paine (Augusta, GA - 10 hours), Stillman (Tuscaloosa, AL - 9 hours), and Tuskegee (10 hours), and Fort Valley State (10 hours).

I agree, those road trips are a pain for a school just restarting it's athletic program. The GLVC (or even GLIAC to replace the departing Erie schools) would be a better fit for them than the SIAC.
