The MEAC and the Big South are in the same position.  The need football playing members.  The MEAC has 6 members and the Big South has 7 members.

Neither NEED anything.

MEAC doesn't need a minimum because their champ goes to the CB. To qualify for the FCS playoffs a conference needs 6 members , Big South has that.

Both conferences want more members for scheduling purposes.

The only issue that can stand in the way of the MEAC at this time is itself. Honestly, the reduced travel expenses and the ability to schedule more out of conference games in revenue sports is a huge plus. But the big thing now is the shares of the Celebration Bowl to the FB playing members should almost doubled compared the time period prior to Hampton leaving the conference.

Just hold down the fort and build the a competitive brand and encourage each member institution to reinvest in athletics and the MEAC will be in a great place.

Maybe the MEAC and the Big South should merge and rename the conference, such as the Big MEAC.

You think those PWCs in the Big South would want to forego the playoffs in order to participate in the CB, if one should just so happen to win the BS?
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Right now it's the MEAC's job to make the conference inviting.  Total improvement.

Now, what exactly does this mean? :shrug:  Somebody is going to find this smaller MEAC attractive.  Until that happens, let's play ball. #meacstrong

The MEAC and SWAC should've merged in 1978, to be completely honest.

A merger between the conferences should come back to the table.
