Central State was placed last in the Pre-season Division picks their first year in the SIAC a few years ago and here we are in 2019 and they have moved from last to third place in the Pre-Season Predicted Order of Finished. They didn't grumble about their first year standing picks and according to my article above the NCAA has delayed SSU as of becoming a D2 school and member of the SIAC for one year. So technically they are not eligible for Conference Championships until their NCAA Probation is lifted. So really they are just a playing in the wind team for now.

Yep I was at this game. And I had a great time at the SWAC Media Day here in Birmingham yesterday. That fried Chicken,Mac and Cheese and Peach Cobbler was delicious. And I got me a nice SWAC Duffle bag that was this year's SWAC Media Day Gift to guest.

Savannah State's move to the SIAC gets complicated
Published: July 17, 2019
By Eric N. Moore
Savannah State University's (SSU) move to the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) has developed some complications.
The NCAA announced on June 20 that SSU has been placed on probation for failing to mmonitor the conduct and administration of its athletics program for the five year academic period 2013-14 to 2017-18. Specifically Savannah State did not monitor its certification process when it improperly certified 43 student-athletes in 10 sports, according to a Division I Committee on Infractions (COI) panel.
Despite the failure to monitor the certification process, the committee said most student-athletes were properly certified.savn tiger2012
“As a fundamental obligation of NCAA membership, schools must ensure that all student-athletes are properly certified, both prior to participation in college athletics and on a continuing basis throughout their enrollment,” the committee said in its decision.
The COI and the university agreed that persistent turnover caused several breakdowns, such as not following written policies, inadequate communication and insufficient rules education. In its decision, the committee noted "all of these weaknesses combined to create a lack of checks and balances needed to ensure academic certification was complete and accurate.”
The committee used the Division I membership-approved infractions penalty guidelines for a Level II-standard case to prescribe the following penalties, most of which were self-imposed by the university:
Two years of probation.
A vacation of records in which student-athletes competed while ineligible. The university must provide a written report containing the contests impacted to the NCAA media coordination and statistics staff within 45 days of the public decision release.
Each staff member responsible for certifying student-athletes must attend a Regional Rules Seminar once during the probation period.
A $5,000 fine (self-imposed by the university).
Being penalized for Division I infractions has impacted Savannah State's application for reclassification to Division II
In a July 12 press release, the NCAA announced that SSU's application was advanced to provisional year two of the two-year reclassification process from Division I.
The Division II membership committee did note significant concerns related to SSU's compliance program, "its recent major infractions case and probationary status in Division I, [brings into question] its overall readiness to be an active Division II member".
In advancing Savannah State, the committee agreed the school will be required to satisfy the standard requirements of provisional year two, which are more rigorous than those of year one. Further, the committee imposed additional requirements — such as increased rules education, presidential engagement and status updates to the committee throughout the year — and noted that the school may be required to repeat year two if progress is not made.
Much like the experience of the newest SIAC member Spring Hill College, Savannah State could have its reclassification application delayed, pushing their full membership in the SIAC back another year.

Lew9ball,We coming to Shut Homecoming down like we did in 2015. And y'all had the gaul to schedule us for Homecoming. Well know that my Bears have a loaded team returning off our Championship Team. We have humbled Tuskegee here recently until it's a crying shame. After all we are coached by former TU Coaches and players.

I'll be there as usual.

We at Miles welcome the Challenge from Savannah State.And they got to get past Albany State,FVSU,Benedict,and Morehouse to get to the Title game. They'll roll over CAU. Bring it On SSU!!!!
I doubt that they will go back to the old way VG. But I do see them moving to North and South Divisions.Because they like the SIAC Football Championship Game especially the players. I was talking to some Savannah State and Edward Waters Players at the Media Day and they are excited about playing in a Championship Game. Especially EWC Players they said finally we are in a good competitive Conference with a rich tradition in rivalries. I'm going to enjoy going to Florida and Savannah for Conference Sports in the Future. Our Conference is Growing we are up to 15 Schools after you include LeMoyne-Owen,Paine,and Spring Hill.
