After what the conference pulled on ODU and GSU with these petty post-season ban things, I don't pity the CAA at all. They get duped by schools like Northeastern and Hofstra and use their football programs to gain entry into the conference, just to dump football and block northern all-sports expansion.
I think the CAA is about to lose its heart when GMU departs. And what's worse for the CAA is that, knowing them, they'll be so petty about this, they'll tell GMU that if they stay the next academic year, they'll hurt the kids by denying them the conference postseason. So, just like VCU before them, GMU will leave immediately and unceremoniously, and the CAA will have to scramble yet again to fill a huge hole. An urgency they wouldn't have if they weren't so g-d petty and small about these moves.
I suspect W&M is next, with JMU probably getting into the MAC.
its in the bylaws. they have had a chance to change them which no one wanted.
with the pending App St and Ga Southern announcment to the Sunbelt, now is the time for the CAA to make the sweatheart deal to Davidson. Pick your partner and a guaranteed southern division of JMU, W&M, UNCW, CoC, Davidson and their partner. That is not bad at all for travel. If the CAA cannot take Davidson from a weakened SoCon then yes they are in trouble if they want more Southern Schools. I think they can get it done.
