This sounds great but I for travel reasons St Louis would have to go in South as Lasalle would go to the north.

UMass football is already gone and are members of the MAC.  UMass' other athletic programs are still in the CAA for the moment.

Looks like the Minutemen's closest MAC football competition will be the Buffalo Bulls.

GK:

I think UMass went FBS because they saw how well their neighbors at UConn were doing.  Boston College had a monopoly on all the football talent in New England if they wanted to play FBS ball.  UConn moves up, and kids who could't get into BC went to UConn, and now UMass wants in on the action.  Buffalo is relatively new in the FBS game also.

It's tough sledding in New England and the Mid Atlantic for FBS programs who have to compete with the pro game.

Then they must be coming into the MAC full time. I doubt that the MAC is gonna let them be football only for long now that Temple has paid their $6M to leave. There are no other schools that are football only now and I suspect the powers are not really feeling it...

VCU Not Considering Jump To A-10, AD Says

http://www.wric.com/story/17257544/vcu-not-considering-jump-to-a-10-ad-says

According to a release from VCU Athletic Director Norwood Teague, VCU has had no contact with the Atlantic-10 Conference about a possible jump from the CAA.

CBSSports.com reported this weekend that VCU, along with George Mason, were considering a move to the A-10, the same conference the University of Richmond belongs to.

"VCU is a proud member of the CAA," Director of Athletics Norwood Teague said. "There have been no discussions with any other conferences concerning changing out affiliation. Contrary to media reports, the VCU Board of Visitors has not met about nor discussed conference realignment."
 
Butler University was also rumored to be considering a move to the A-10.
 
Officials from the A-10 released the following statement regarding the report:
 
"Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade noted that membership issues are constantly examined and analyzed in light of the most recent Division I realignment activities. McGlade further stated that the Conference strategically reviews membership issues and there is no specific timeline regarding if and or when any decisions on membership are made.

"The A-10's current membership is fully committed through 2013 and is in a position to be very deliberate and patient regarding any decisions that impact the future of the league."

GK:

I think your correct in that football will be the "lead in" team, followed by the other athletic squads.   nod

plausible deniability
a condition in which a subject can safely and believeably deny knowledge of any particular truth that may exist because the subject is deliberately made unaware of said truth so as to benefit or shield the subject from any responsibility associated through the knowledge of such truth.

Colonial Athletic Association Denies George Mason, VCU Defections

CAA denies George Mason and VCU bound for A-10
 
By Marc Narducci; Inquirer Staff Writer
 

Denials came from all corners of the Colonial Athletic Association concerning two of its schools' potential interest in joining the Atlantic Ten Conference.

On Sunday, CBSsports.com reported that the CAA's George Mason and Virginia Commonwealth, and the Horizon League's Butler have indicated to the Atlantic Ten that they might be interested in joining the conference for the 2013-14 school year.

Locally, Drexel and Delaware are CAA members, although Drexel doesn't field a football team. Villanova is a CAA member in football only.

CAA commissioner Tom Yeager was forceful in speaking to reporters Monday on a conference call.

"Both VCU and George Mason have and will be issuing statements that there is no substance to these rumors whatsoever," Yeager said.

And both schools did issue statements.

Rumors about VCU and George Mason began as soon as Temple decided earlier this month to join the Big East Conference for football next season and for all other sports in 2013.

When contacted about the VCU and George Mason situation, the A-10 made this statement:

"Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade noted that membership issues are constantly examined and analyzed in light of the most recent Division I realignment activities. McGlade further stated that the Conference strategically reviews membership issues and there is no specific timeline regarding if and or when any decisions on membership are made. The A-10's current membership is fully committed through 2013 and is in a position to be very deliberate and patient regarding any decisions that impact the future of the league."

Despite the denials by the CAA, VCU, and George Mason, situations change quickly in conference realignment. Yeager acknowledged that he has not talked to McGlade about the report of VCU and George Mason's potential departure.

"I believe if there was any truth to this in-depth process, we would have had the conversation," he said.
