We all have a tendency to look at potential bad news about other schools as them being the only ones that it can happen to. The reality is that "All" our schools were barely making it before this virus. Trust me, your school is also looking in their wallets and weighing their options. If the very wealthy bigs schools are struggling, why would you think our schools aren't? s**t getting ready to hit the fan for a lot of us. Just wait and see.

Hell , if this recession drags on for two or more quarters sports conferences will be the least of our problems.

I completely agree. This is time where organizational restructuring will occur on all levels. I’m truly hopeful that we come out stronger from this. But I’m not naive enough to this that there won’t be casualties along the way.

I mean, Stanford dropped a lot of sports, and I read that Clemson dropped track and field. If these rich schools can and will do that,,,,,,,

I hate for these words to come from my mouth, but the casualty may be the MEAC. I hope not. :brickwall:

True. All universities are weighing their options. Nothing would surprise me at this point.

Another thing to think about... even if some of our schools can somehow keep things together, if most of the other schools in our conferences stop playing sports, who will we play? The HBCUs that remain might have to join together to create a new conference or two. This would be a challenge because of the distance the remaining schools would have to each other. I hate to say this but A&T and Hampton might have seen something in the clouds when they jumped ship to the Big South. The HBCUs that remain might have to join the PWS that remain to form new conferences.

Sooner or later most of our school would return to playing sports. But HBCU conferences would be long gone.

The no-brainer is the Big South.

Depends on whether or not the MEAC remains viable, and we stay D1-FCS. IMHO, if the MEAC dissolves, we will probably apply to the Big South or the CAA. The question is, will the Big South or CAA accept us? If we move back down to D2, we will apply to the CIAA. The question is, will the CIAA accept us?
