Chicago State might want to consider moving down to D2, but if their plan is to stay D1 they should try to join the Horizon League.

Why is that?This is just my view on the subject of Hampton moving to the Big South;
According to Jerry Junior it's because of religious bias. (https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/college/columnist/dan-wolken/2017/09/28/jerry-falwell-jr-believes-religious-bias-kept-liberty-out-conference/713957001/)
If you throw that out then other arguments are: no added TV market value; outside of Sunbelt and MAC footprint; and AAC isn't looking for FCS teams moving up. Conference USA doesn't really have a good argument for saying no except it would give them an odd number of schools.

No FBS conference wants Liberty, Conference USA even turned down a $24 million entry fee that Liberty was offering. It looks like they will be stuck in the Big South for awhile and play independent FBS football.

I guess schools are really moving on. It looks like Howard has replaced Hampton with Bryant for the last game of the season.
So now my question is, does Hampton stay in for Football next year or are they gonna dip and leave holes in folks schedule and make the MEAC redo its schedule.
Not sure how UNA's move up to Big South will work or when Campbell will start playing Big South football, but Hampton should at least have 4 open spots that they can fill with MEAC schools.

When the CIAA was moved from SR1 before, I recall there being a policy in place that counted 'in-state, or contiguous state' games as regional games. The definition of regional was both geographic and conference-based.
I thought the contiguous state rule only applied to states that touch your home state, not teams that reside in a state of one of your conference members or states that border a state of your conference member.
So Bowie was able to count Seton Hill since PA borders MD, but JCSU wouldn't be able to count a game against a PSAC school as in region even though Lincoln resides in PA.
There's also some carve outs for HBCU's playing each other and some states that are isolated.
Blount should be on the hot seat at JCSU, each year he has won 1 less game and currently has a 9-21 record after 3 seasons. Maybe he gets another season, but he has to start winning.
Williams should be on the hot seat at Livingstone. Since Drew Powell graduated in 2015 Livingstone has gone 2-18. I'd give Williams another season, but if it's another bad one then he might be out.
So based on the regional rankings at the moment, what would the opening round playoffs look like? Who would host and who would be the road teams?
Assuming all the top teams place bids to host, the first round would be 2 v. 7, 3 v. 6, and 4 v. 5 with the top seeds hosting. I can only think of once in recent memory when the higher seed didn't host and that was in 2011 when ECSU was a #4 seed but didn't place a bid and had to travel to #5 Cal.
NCAA pays for the visitor team to travel and they will fly a team if the trip is over 600 miles.

Hopefully this conference can land two teams in the playoffs again. WSSU, Bowie, VSU, and/or Va Union. We shall see...
There's only 4 conferences in SR2, so that only leaves 2 PWC's. Albany State already beat Valdosta, VUU already beat Newberry, and WSSU already beat UNCP. Combined the SIAC and CIAA will get at least 3 schools in.
