I think Convenant applied for D-III also. I think both will join the GSAC which only has 4 schools with men's sports. Also PSU-Abington is supposed to move to D-III. My guess is that they will go to the NEAC.

Naranjo, did you get that off the NCAA site? could you post the link so I could put it up on the D-II and NAIA board.
D-III
I heard the Nebraska schools were going to stay in the NAIA.

I've heard rumors on Montreat move to D-III

D-II
I've heard nothing about APU, Virginia-Wise, Frostburg St., St. Clair.

I've heard rumors on Carroll, SOU, UBC, Lehman, Northwood(FL) (no facts though)

The rest of the D-II you have listed have already applied.

I've heard rumors on Sioux Falls moving to D-II.

All the money went to the Lambuth President's rug on his head. You can see the gap.

The Lambuth guy on the D-II board says they are still moving up but that was a week ago so he may think differently now.

Article indicating that Lambuth still plans to submit additional documents to the NCAA by June to join NCAA D-2 and the GSAC for 2010-2011.Link at http://www.jacksonsun.com/article/20090 ... /904280321

Edit:That should be the GSC=Gulf South Athletic Conference.

Thanks

Believe the GSAC (Great South Athletic Conference) is Div. III. Perhaps Lambuth is best suited for Div. III, although I think previous articles suggested they were exploring Div. II.

If the target is indeed Div. II, the conferences in mind could be
South Atlantic (SAC),
3 Tennessee schools, 5 from North Carolina, and 1 from South Carolina

OR

Gulf South (GSC).
16 schools (largely in Arkansas and gulf coast states (may lose up to 4 to D-IAA (Atlantic Sun)).
Perhaps that's it and GSAC instead of GSC is a typo.

Apparently Lambuth is currently living hand-to-mouth financially. The President seems Gung-ho on the NCAA, and maybe this would increase their profile and help the bottom line.
Does anyone know if being an NCAA Div. II or Div. III member necessarily requires a greater athletics budget than NAIA ?
I have no idea.... Maybe the answer is NO, in which case Lambasting the Lambuth President is not justified....

Lambuth is looking at D-II and the GSC. That is the only conf. I've heard.

There are 14 members in the GSC. Montavello left for the PBC. I don't know who else you had in there.
