Fresno St. -

A few tidbits....

Azusa Pacific is in the 11-team (all California) Golden State Athletic Conference (NAIA), and the guy who wrote the 3 part article on the future of the NAIA noted that the GSAC and also the 6-team (all California) California-Pacific Athletic Conference (CPAC) were looking at moving to NCAA Division II, lock, stock and barrel.

I have CUNY-Lehman in the D-III CUNYAC (City U. of New York Athletic Conference).

I have Northwood (FL) as NCAA D-II independent in the South Region.

Virginia-Wise recently changed conferences within NAIA from the Appalachian Athletic Conference (leaving them with 8) to the Mid-South Conference (giving them 8). Montreat (NC) and Convenant (GA) of the AAC have been exploring the move to NCAA D-III, so perhaps Virginia-Wise were trying to escape a sinking ship, and then have since announced that they are looking at NCAA D-II.

I have nothing on Frostburg State (Maryland) - other than Pittsburgh Pirates former first baseman Bob Robertson played there.

This St. Clair College of Ontario must be in the CIS. I can't believe they have done anything significant relative to the NCAA, since all the talk is about Simon Fraser (BC) and U of British Columbia potentially becoming the first Canadian schools in the NCAA, eh ???

Please post whatever additional info you happen to come across - I appreciate it.

I read jason's 3 part NAIA losing members to the NCAA thing. I don't remember him saying the GSAC & CPC being a lock for D-II. The NAIA say its not gonna happen. You can't trust them though they hope everyone stays. Menlo from the CPC has interest in D-II.

How do you have Northwood(FL) as D-II Indy? Northwood has never followed though with its D-II exploration. look at the ncaa.org release of the schools in the different levels of the provisional periods, Northwood isn't there. St. Thomas(FL) is D-II Indy.

St.Clair isn't even in the CIS

Covenant is going to D-III, Montreat is thinking about it.

Reinhardt is joining the AAC according to the NAIA board.

Big E, aka EPJr. posted it from the ncaa website last summer (Briarcliffe since has dropped its D-II app, Academy of Art is listed as a PWC member on its website)

NDIANAPOLIS-The NCAA, Division II Management Council has approved 12 institutions as new active members of the division, effective September 1, 2008.

The 12 new members successfully completed their exploratory and provisional requirements and were recommended for active status by the Division II Membership Committee at its summer meeting.

The new members are (with location and conference affiliation) listed below:

• Brevard College (Brevard, N.C.; South Atlantic Conference)

• Central State University (Wilberforce, Ohio; Independent)

• Chestnut Hill College (Philadelphia; Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference)

• Claflin University (Orangeburg, S.C.; Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference)

• Dixie State College (St. George, Utah; Pacific West Conference)

• Flagler College (St. Augustine, Fla.; Independent)

• Georgia Southwestern State University (Americus, Ga.; Peach Belt Conference)

• Newman University (Wichita, Kansas; Heartland Conference)

• Notre Dame de Namur University (Belmont, Calif.; Pacific West Conference)

• Seton Hill University (Greensburg, Pa.; West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference)

• Texas A&M International University (Laredo, Texas; Heartland Conference)

• University of Texas of the Permian Basin (Odessa, Texas; Heartland Conference)

The dozen institutions bring Division II’s total number of member schools to 308 and add five members to the regions west of the Mississippi River.

“These institutions have worked diligently through the membership process and have demonstrated their capacity to comply with Division II policies and procedures and advance the division’s strategic-positioning platform,” said Management Council Chair Debbie Chin, the athletics director at the University of New Haven. “On behalf of the Division II Management Council, I am proud to say that these 12 institutions chose Division II.”

The Council also approved several institutions’ advancement in the new-membership process. Lake Erie College (Painesville, Ohio) was moved into year one of the provisional period in the membership process, effective September 1, 2008.

Six other institutions were moved into year two of the exploratory period in the membership process, effective September 1, 2008. They are as follows:

• King College (Bristol, Tenn.)

• Lincoln University (Lincoln University, Pa.)

• St. Thomas University (Miami Gardens, Fla.)

• University of Arkansas, Fort Smith (Fort Smith, Ark.)

• University of Illinois at Springfield (Springfield, Ill.)

• Urbana University (Urbana, Ohio)

In addition, the Management Council approved the following five schools’ applications to enter year one of the exploratory period in the membership process, effective September 1, 2008:

• California State University, East Bay (Hayward, Calif.)

• Dominican University of California (San Rafael, Calif.)

• Lambuth University (Jackson, Tenn.)

• Maryville University of St. Louis (St. Louis)

• Ohio Dominican University (Columbus, Ohio)

One institution, Briarcliffe College in Bethpage, New York, was asked to repeat year one of the exploratory period. The Membership Committee did not accept applications from two schools (San Francisco Academy of Arts and Young Harris College in Georgia) to enter the Division II membership process at this time.

the 1st logo of the Lion is the Academy of Arts Urban Knights. What I find odd is that Dominican was approved by D-II and they don't have their logo on the PWC. AofA had to re-apply and they are on the main page. They were listed on the D-II basketball site in the standings with a 0-0 conf record for the PWC. Dominican was not. My guess is that since A of A came out of no where, where else would you list their record? They were never NAIA. PWC says A of A joined in 2008, Dominican joins in 2009.

naj, Reinhardt is going to the AAC, Its on the SSAC board on the NAIA message board site.

According to the the head of the NAIA message board MCAC is not going to disband because all of the schools that applied for other conferences were denied.

Young Harris should be passed over again since they only have 6 sports and no basketball.

Actually there IS D-II hockey, however there are so few schools there's no championship. All of the D-II hockey schools play in the ECAC, which I believe is where St. Clair wanted to apply to.

Actually, thought St. Clair was interested in DIII and playing Michigan schools as it's just a few miles from Detroit. DIII was not opened up to Canadian schools, only DII (and DI by the one sport exemption).

Another Canadian school that supposedly was looking at the NCAA was Lakehead U in Thunder Bay. With it's locale it's remote from anywhere. Minnesota DII schools are actually more travel accessible by road (Michigan by plane or boat) than eastern Ontario schools.

ECAC is D-III, the D-II schools either compete at D-I or D-III.
