Where will the Big South look when replacements for Liberty and CCU are needed?
Anyone else from NEC feeling constricted? Anyone from MEAC got the stuff to actually move?
The pickings are slim.
If schools start leaving the Big South then the football schools left behind are going to be left in a pickle. The Big South is a hybrid league and the as the nonfootball schools become the majority the league's commitment is going to wane more and more. Winthrop, UNC-Ashville, Campbell, High Point, Radford, and Longwood have no interest in football or expanding the footprint. They might become a band of independents unless they can sway some DII schools to move up and poach Kennesaw St as a full member. It's doubtful, but the SoCon might be willing to accept a couple charity cases if Big South football collapses.
