UNCC needs to get out of the A10 ASAP.

Hopefully CUSA will take them when they come crawling back.

Yeah I read that somewhere earlier this week. I imagine it would be just for hoops.

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

CUSA for all sports, including football in 2015. I will link some articles. Tensor posted about it in the College football forum as well.

Butler to the A10 could turn out to be a brilliant move for the conference or it could turn out to be mediocre.

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.

This is stupid. Temple was synonymous with the A10 and the NCAA needs to do something about this. They're ruining the history of college basketball.

Butler now joining the A10 in 2012 instead of 2013. The Horizon League said they couldn't compete for conference titles. It is difficult to get an at large in the Horizon League, so I don't blame them for jumping.

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