Butler To The A10

UNCC needs to get out of the A10 ASAP.
Hopefully CUSA will take them when they come crawling back.

Have they mentioned where they are going for FB? SoCon seems like a great fit.
I just graduated from there so I feel like I should know this..my interest in the school athletics are pretty close to non existent

They come in with about 10-15 years of solid success behind them, but so did Charlotte, which proceeded to flop in the A10.
Charlotte obviously never made it to two consecutive national championship games, but any school with the exception of maybe 2 dozen nationally are just a bad season or two away from being irrelevant.
If Butler doesn't remain the Butler we've all come to know over the last decade, then the A10 is much weaker than it was before. Losing Temple is a big hit to the league. There are other solid programs, but Temple and Xavier were the only two that were rock solid year after year.

The A10 will have 16 teams for the 2012 season and could realistically get 5-6 bids this year.
