whenever something happens Quinn does update it. I update it on wikipedia along with some others. I do most of the D-II updates on wiki because there doesn't seem to be a rush of people updating things at that level.

Fresno, if you need some help with the lower level colleges on Wikipedia, let me know. I do a lot of minor league hockey and lower-level American soccer work there, so if you want help on there hit me up and we'll get working.

sure, if you find out some conference movement, move ups, D-I or D-II before I do edit the page. Post it on here cuz I check this place more than I do that. I haven't got to updating D-III & NAIA. If you could run that, that would be awesome.

I've done a little bit of that while I was updating a list, but now I can't find the list! I'll get to work on checking the conferences for D3/NAIA.

If Tennessee State accepts the SWAC invite, what does the OVC do? They will be at 9, but then back to 10 when SIU-E joins up. Stay at 10, or expand again?

There were some preliminary talks a few months ago between the OVC and N. alabama. Belmont and Lipscomb are two others that have been in the mix, seemingly for some time. Not too many options, other than a coup like getting WIU to leave the MVFC/Summit for all-sports in the OVC. Frankly, it'd be a downgrade on both ends though now.

GSC only has 5 football schools left, 6 if Lambuth ever gets it together. If/when UNA gets the invite to the OVC, you can bet that Delta St. and Valdosta St. will want to move to the FCS. Even W.Georgia wanted to move to FCS before the new cost came into affect. W.Florida was looking at adding football and or moving to D-I after the moratorium.

There are a few openings in the area. Big South has a spot. I think Kennesaw St. gets it when they start football.
OVC has 2 spots., A-Sun has 2 spots, even move if the OVC takes Belmont and the BSC takes Kennesaw. SLC could look at Delta St., the others are too far east.

Cross post from A-Sun

Belmont University will become the Ohio Valley Conference’s newest member.

The OVC announced the move today.
Belmont, a current member of the Atlantic Sun Conference, will join the OVC in 2012-13.

So does that mean the OVC is done and UNA isn't coming? Or do they want 14 w/ UNA and NKU?
