This guy doesn't get it. They need more members that play football. Georgia St aint coming and the 3 he wants don't have football.

They NEED Kennesaw St. for 12 since they are starting football. If they want 14 they should get on the phone with D-II power Valdosta St. who I bet would be willing to go if/when UNA goes D-I. Half of the GSC left anyway and VSU would be in a conf. with 4 or 5 football teams. It would also help if they could get Campbell to add schollies.

Would be good additions, even as D2 upgrades.

Also FSA, will be interesting to see how the Asun/Big South turn out in regards to private and public membership, as well as football vs non-football. In the perfect world, you'd be able to through all the Asun, Big south and Socon schools on the table and just move them around to form conferences of non-football, football, or privates and non-privates, etc. Same argument with the Socon and CAA.

either way, the Asun might have enough schools sooner than later. Not many, but close to the 6 needed.

HPU will add football, but new arena for basketball and pharmacy school will come first as part of $2.1 billion expansion

Quote:
High Point University President ... announced the school will add a men’s lacrosse program [in 2012-13]. He added football is “Inevitable”, but he is asking community leaders to find the school land to build on.

High Point University Buys Oak Hollow Mall
http://www.myfox8.com/wghp-story-oak-hollow-hpu-110224,0,6036059.story
Quote:
High Point University ... has purchased Oak Hollow Mall.

The purchase includes more than 660,000 sq. ft. of building space and 45 acres of land.

The school does have a 10-year growth and expansion plan, but the mall's purchase was not part of those original plans, school officials said. School officials said they did not know what they would do specifically with the mall, but they are studying potential long-term uses for the property.

City leaders were also urging the university to purchase the property.

The mall is 1 mile from campus and existing sports complex.

$40M gift to High Point University for health sciences part of $2.1B drive to beef up school
http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/2bba4f9cfc694e929b587ed5143a8d48/NC--High-Point-University/
Quote:
Campus officials expect enrollment to continue growing, to 5,000 undergraduates by 2017.

The university has completed construction of eight new buildings and two stadiums and renovated 16 buildings, and is working on a parking deck, new restaurants, a tennis complex and four new residence halls. Plans also include a $60 million, 5,500-seat basketball arena.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Point_University#Athletics
Quote:
Speculation about HPU athletics has centered on the construction of either a football stadium (the school has not played football since the 1950s) or a larger basketball [arena] in order to move to a larger conference. The recent purchase of the Oak Hollow Mall property has further fueled that [speculation].

I must have selective dyslexia. I've called gsohokiefan, go-hokies-fan, my mind must have wanted to see go hokies. No one wanted to correct me? It takes me coming back from a long day trip to Monterey, for my daughter's 2nd b-day, and reading this at 12:30 AM to realize his actual name. :? I must work better at night. Side Note: I took my IQ test at 12:30AM and got a 135 out of 144. The max score could be 160 but you had to be under 13 to score over 144.

Also of note, Stony Brook has re-enlisted with Big South Football through 2015.

I guess they figure that momentum for any sort of FCS conference in the Northeast (or those schools such as themselves, Fordham, Albany, etc. getting invited to the CAA) was going to happen only on hte kind of intense schedule pressure normally reserved for the Big East (i.e. "Don't hold your breath !").

I'm not sure this is the first time that LIberty (Jerry Falwell U.) has tried to get everyone excited about going "big-time".

Back in the 1980s, they hired Sam Rutigliano to coach - it seemed like a strange move for Rutigliano.
I think he had been recently fired by the Cleveland Browns after a decent run in the NFL behind QB Brian Sipe.
Maybe he took hte Liberty job out of a friendship with Falwell....
