Kennesaw and North Alabama have ALWAYS been in the Atlantic Sun. The Big South and Atlantic Sun had an agreement for those two schools to play in the Big South until they formed their own Football conference. The A Sun wants to be a FBS conference and Liberty will join them once they make it to that level

This is will be the Big South Moving Forward

Campbell University
Charleston Southern University
Gardner-Webb University
Hampton University
North Carolina A&T University
Robert Morris

 :shrug: Some of those match-ups will be tough to watch. A&T needs make sure they stay away from Pittsburgh in late late November. If they didn't like the cold in Baltimore last year, they will hate Moon Township in November.  :tiptoe:

It would be good if they dropped Robert Morris and Monmouth and picked up Howard, Norfolk State, and NC Central. It would be the first fully integrated conference and a great group of schools from an institutional standpoint.

Only one tough game with Monmouth. Other than that A&T should run away with the conference

In my humble opinion, playing a schedule of teams that can’t win a playoff game is not a recipe for winning playoff games. I think that has been proven. Additionally, don’t underestimate how difficult it may be getting a win in Pittsburgh in November if the Aggies are unfortunate enough that on their schedule, I was on the sidelines for the game at Morgan last year and them southern ninjas was more worried the cold than winning the game. FYI, it wasn’t cold. It was typical northern football weather. Moon Township is a totally different animal than Baltimore in November.  Those white boys love playing in that weather.

You might want to check out our future non conference schedules. We have tough FCS games each year to gauge where we are

Nah.  The only non-HBCU in that football slate worth a fart academically and competitively Is Campbell.  Basketball is a little better with High Point, Winthrop and Radford.  But hard pass.  Give me Morgan State and SC State any day over that.

I think we benefit from being aligned with Hampton and ya'll need to be with NC A&T.

We spent an entire generation not being ‘aligned’ with A&T.  We will be alright.   As for Howard, you’ve got Morgan down the road.  Build out that c rivalry.
