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.

This is just my view on the subject of Hampton moving to the Big South;

The Big South

Campbell University  Leaving in a few years

Charleston Southern University

Gardner–Webb University

High Point University No Football

Liberty University Leaving in a few years

Longwood University

Presbyterian College Leaving next year

Radford University

University of North Carolina at Asheville No Football

Winthrop University

USC Up-State No Football

Kennesaw State Football only (I do not expect them to be around very long)

Monmouth Football only ((I do not expect them to be around very long)

Hampton

It is very clear that The Big South needs Hampton, but I do not understand why Hampton needs the Big South.  Maybe Hampton needs the Big South to save on their Football expenses.

I think Liberty is leaving sooner than that. Aren't they moving up to FBS this fall? They are actually playing New Mexico State twice in one season, home and away. I've never seen that before,,,,,,,,,,,,

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.
Why is that?

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.

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.

From the press release , it looks like stay but asking for clarification

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.

This appears to still be the case.  Bowie State defeated Seton Hill, which is in the PSAC and it counted in their regional record.  Since the SIAC now stretches to Ohio with Central State; Findlay would be counted as a regional game.

unless something has changed you are correct in that counting as a Regional Game due to Central State being a SIAC Conference team.

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...  :popcorn:

That's wishful thinking, we're in Region II now along with the SIAC. If the CIAA gets two bids and the SIAC gets one or two bids, that would be four HBCUs in the playoffs from the same region. That will never happen. I think both conferences will get just one bid each. The other five bids from the region will go to the other three PWC's, with the Gulf South getting at least two of those.

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.
