Chowan leaving CIAA and Norfolk State moving back?
« on: February 11, 2018, 09:03:12 PM »
Rumor has it that Chowan has notified the CIAA that they will be leaving the conference in 2019 and will operate all of its sports programs as a member of the ECAC. They are apparently upset that the CIAA no longer supports baseball, which is a big deal at Chowan. Also heard that since Hampton is leaving the MEAC, the conference is talking to Norfolk State about returning to fill the void. Anybody else heard that?

I don't think Chowan would leave.  They could find a conference to play baseball.

Makes no true sense for either move at the moment.

Chowan is leaving the CIAA for the Conference Carolinas League. They will be an associate member of the CIAA in Football and Women's Bowling. I think that will happen in 2019 if not sooner. Makes sense with amount of sports Chowan offers. The NSU move isn't going to happen I don't think. There may be another Division 2 team that will join the CIAA around the same time but not as a Football Playing member.

Conference Carolinas seems to be more in line with Chowan's general mission.  Most of the schools are religious-based institutions so I actually seems like a good fit for all the other sports.

I am on the fence about Chowan remaining a member of the conference only as an associate member for Football and Women’s Bowling.  A part of me says that if you want to leave, take all of the sports out of the conference.  However, on the flip side, having them remain as an associate member will still generate some revenue as far as conference fees.  The Commissioner and the Board of Directors need to sit down and put together a strategic plan for our conference and determine how to strengthen the conference as well as bringing in new member institutions.  I would welcome back Norfolk State University with open arms…I think they left trying to keep up with Hampton back in the late nineties.  The conference should try to get UNC-Pembroke to join the conference since they are now the only Division 2 school without a conference affiliation.  A few MEAC schools could possibly drop back to Division 2 and we could have a sixteen member conference.

Northern Division
Lincoln University of Pennsylvania
Bowie State University
Virginia Union University
Virginia State University
Elizabeth City State University
Coppin State University (if they resumed playing football)
University of Maryland-Eastern Shore (if they resumed playing football)
Norfolk State University

Southern Division
Shaw University
Saint Augustine’s University
Fayetteville State University
Winston-Salem State University
Livingstone College
Johnson C. Smith University
UNC-Pembroke
South Carolina State University

This would be a very strong CIAA.  Since all of these schools play football, each school would have to play seven divisional games, two cross-divisional games and one non-conference game to complete the NCAA mandated ten game schedule to be eligible for the Division 2 playoffs.  The divisional champions would go on to the CIAA Championship game.  For basketball, the tournament would have to start on Monday. 

While we are on the subject, it has been rumored that Lincoln is thinking about leaving too.  Is that true?

UNCP just agreed a year or two ago to a schedule agreement in football with the SAC. Don't see them leaving for the CIAA. Just don't. Barton College in Wilson announced the decision to add football. I could see the CIAA making a run at them for football possibly.

"This would be a very strong CIAA" is an understatement. This would be an amazingly strong conference, but things would need to work out perfect for this to happen. If the MEAC lose that many of its schools to DII, then some others would surely follow. Three or four of the MEAC schools are legit FCS programs but need just a little more funding to be competitive. So I hope these schools leaving won't cause the whole conference to move down. I think right now, A&T, NCCU and FAMU are real fcs schools. Maybe they could join the Big South. But this just my opinion.

 :lmao: at your comment (and because im bored on this conference call)...

I just threw them in the mix to think outside the box.  Also, the traveling distance wouldn't be that far for them to be in the Southern Division.

SCSU would be playing in the CIAA Southern Division where the larger State schools would be more attractive than playing all those private SIAC schools. The MEAC schools have a big brother relationship with the CIAA. The SWAC has that same relationship with the SIAC. SCSU neighborhood is North Carolina and Virginia.

Chowan should be happy about CIAA not having Baseball. They can't beat WSSU.

If your school ever had the nation's longest losing streak, you can't be considered a football power.
