Here's who I have in the GSC (NCAA Div. II) - 14 teams, (you are correct Montevallo announced a move to the Peach Belt Conference)

Arkansas - Monticello
Arkansas Tech
Southern Arkansas
Henderson St. (AR)
Harding (AR)
Quachita Baptist (AR)
Christian Brothers (TN)
Delta State (MS) - rumored to be thinking about D-I
Alabama - Huntsville
North Alabama - rumored to be thinking about D-I
West Alabama - not sure about any D-I intentions or not
Valdosta St. (GA) - rumored to be thinking about D-I
West Georgia - rumored to be thinking about D-I
West Florida - rumored to be thiking about D-I

I think about 4 of these (mostly directional) schools have been posturing about moving to D-I.
That would largely be driven by a burning desire for Div. I FCS football.
The moratorium has put the ki-bosh on that for now.

Eventually you may see something like the following.
OVC Member Jacksonville St. (AL) jumps to D-1, adds FBS football (they have no football team right now) and tries to join the Sun-Belt.
OVC (reduced to 10 members, and no longer demands OVC football membership) grabs 2 Tennessee teams from the Atlantic Sun.
Several of these GSC teams move up to Div. I, join the Atlantic Sun, and play FCS football in the Big South.

Found an article about Minot St. looking to move to D-II, and they'd look to join the NSIC.

http://www.areavoices.com/monke/

Also Black Hills St. & S. Dakota Mines were mentioned in the article as looking to move up. They are in the RMAC area.

Freaked, see if you can find anything on them

Followup article regarding the Sioux Falls NCAA application announcement.
Apparently they are expecting to compete with about 24 other June NCAA applicants for about 10 spots.
According to the article,"USF will be one of an estimated 25 schools applying for membership by the June 1st deadline.And there's only room for 10."
It should be interesting to see which of the NAIA schools applying to the NCAA this year will be successful.Link at http://www.keloland.com/Sports/NewsDeta ... m?Id=83908

FresnoStAlum,thanks for the post.

The article indicates that the 25 number is an "estimate".Plus,there is still about a month until the application deadline.
Not sure if this number includes D-3 upgrades and schools that did not make it from last year?


Article out of San Francisco with announcement that Dominican University plans to apply for D-2 and Pacific West membership.Link at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... 17BH0D.DTL

Vancouver Sun article discussing Simon Fraser's application for D-2 membership.Article notes that SFU expects to compete against 17 other schools for 10 D-2 spots.I guess we'll need to wait until June 1 to see how many schools actually apply.Article indicates that UBC has deferred it's decision until later.Link at http://www.vancouversun.com/Sports/Simo ... story.html

Freaked unless someone had to re-apply this is the list. Dominican(CA) was 2008

2007
UI-Springfield
Lake Erie
Lincoln(PA)
UA-Ft.Smith
King
St.Thomas(FL)
Urbana
2008
Dominican(CA)
Academy of Art
CS East Bay
Maryville(MO)
Ohio Dominican
Lambuth
2009 Apps
Simon Fraser
William Jewell
Walsh
Malone
Cedarville
Notre Dame(OH)
Mt.Vernon Nazarene
Cumberland(TN)
Sioux Falls

Rumored 2009 Apps
Minot St.
Black Hills St.
S.Dakota Mines
Lehman
Menlo
S.Oregon
Cardinal Stritch
Northwood(FL)

UBC & Carroll are saying no to D-II for now.

Young Harris was turned down in 2008. They only have 5 or 6 sports plus no basketball.

If Dominican(CA) counts against the 10 then they are at the max. How does the NCAA decide, first 10 schools with minimum of 10 sports?

Briarcliffe withdrew their app. they are not going D-II. Academy of Art was already listed in the PWC basketball standing in 08-09. If it was A of A that was denied then Dominican was not. PWC has both schools listed as members on its website.

From the PWC website

NDNU, who became a full-fledged Division II member this year, calls Belmont, CA, home and is situated midway between the two major media and population centers of San Francisco and San Jose. The addition of the Academy of Art University in SanFrancisco this year and Dominican University of California in 2009-10 gives the PacWest three schools in the Bay Area.
