  • Moving Day 2022

    Here we go. It's that time of year! There have been many changes already and there could be more before the season starts.

    One school had a name change and five others were granted university status:
    * Humboldt State University -> California State Polytechnic University, Humboldt
    * D'Youville College -> D'Youville University
    * Daemen College -> Daemen University
    * Dominican College -> Dominican University New York
    * Glenville State College -> Glenville State University
    * Molloy College -> Molloy University

    Bridgeport moves from the ECC to the CACC and it's possible their new Track & Field Indoor teams debuting in 2022-23 will be ECC affiliates.

    Northwood leaves the GLIAC for the GMAC.

    Emory & Henry College joins the SAC from D3.

    Newman and Rogers State are now full MIAA members, they had been associate members since joining the conference in 2019.

    The SAC adds Swimming & Diving as a championship sport by essentially absorbing the Bluegrass Mountain Conference. This brings the teams from Carson-Newman, Catawba College, Lenoir-Rhyne, Mars Hill, and Wingate under the SAC banner with new member Emory & Henry College.

    Sponsorship changes within the South Atlantic Conference Carolinas begin. Field Hockey moves from the SACC to being fully sponsored by the SAC. Coker, Limestone, Lincoln Memorial, Newberry College, and Wingate are joined by affiliate members Belmont Abbey College, Converse, Lander, and Mount Olive. The SACC adds Triathlon to be administered by the SAC; members include Emmanuel College, King, Lenoir-Rhyne, Newberry College, and Wingate.

    Barton College and Erskine College Football join the SAC as affiliate members, both were Independent while Barton had a scheduling agreement with the SAC.

    D'Youville and Daemen National Collegiate Division Men's Volleyball teams affiliate with the Northeast Conference after previously competing as Independents.

    Dallas Baptist D1 Baseball moves from the Missouri Valley Conference to CUSA.

    Central Washington, Simon Fraser, and Western Oregon Football begin their affiliation with the LSC while the GNAC ends sponsorship of the sport.

    Alaska-Anchorage Men's Ice Hockey returns to compete as an Independent and the Women's Gymnastics team is permanently re-instated.

    Holy Family adds Bowling to become the sixth CACC school with the sport. It is not known yet if the CACC will begin sponsorship. All current CACC Bowling schools are affiliates of the ECC.

    In Memoriam: University of the Sciences is merging into Saint Joseph's University; the Devils were CACC members in 1999-2022.

    Leaving for D1 are Lindenwood and Southern Indiana from the GLVC to the Ohio Valley Conference, Texas A&M-Commerce from the LSC to the Southland Conference, Stonehill College from the NE10 to the Northeast Conference, and Queens from the SAC to the Atlantic Sun Conference.

    Notable logos that debuted in 2021-22.

    Southern Intercollegiate

    California State-Chico

    Concord

    Newman

    To date, 51 teams at 32 schools will begin competition in 2022-23 including 10 NCAA emerging sport teams at 10 schools while 3 schools dropped sports. Felician and Holy Family are already ECC affiliates providing the possibility that their ECC affiliation will be expanded. Three D2 schools are adding Bowling, this opens the door to the possibility of D2 splitting from the National Collegiate Division to sponsor its own Bowling championship in the next 3 to 4 years. The NCAA Emerging Sports of Acrobatics & Tumbling, Triathlon, and Women's Wrestling have reached the needed number of programs to gain NCAA championship status in the National Collegiate Division after all the announced additions become officially active teams.

      Missed that, I'll update after work. Lot of questions on what's going on at Florida Tech. Full track & field was scaled back to distance track in 2018, three sports including NCAA champ women's golf were cut in 2019, football cut in 2020, and total confusion on the status of men's lacrosse in 2021. They say it's five teams being cut but it's actually six bringing them to 5m/6w teams. This sure seems like a cost-cutting measure to me.

        This was extensively discussed over a month ago in the SAC area - Catawba College has redone its athletics logo to remove the feathers...

            Speaking of name changes:

            California University of Pennsylvania is now officially Pennsylvania Western University-California
            Clarion University of Pennsylvania is now officially Pennsylvania Western University-Clarion
            Edinboro University of Pennsylvania is now officially Pennsylvania Western University-Edinboro

            Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania is now officially Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania-Bloomsburg
            Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania is now officially Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania-Lock Haven
            Mansfield University of Pennsylvania is now officially Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania-Mansfield

            Each of the six schools will retain their athletic programs in D2 (four of the six schools - Bloomsburg, Clarion, Edinboro and Lock Haven, compete in D1 for wrestling in the MAC).

              Additional updates.

              Central Washington, Simon Fraser, and Western Oregon Football begin their affiliation with the LSC while the GNAC ends sponsorship of the sport.

              Florida Tech announced dropping 6 sports with two days to spare.
              I lost my notes on the PASSHE name changes, sorry for missing that.

                I'm old enough to remember when Florida Tech was on the verge of being a potential power in GSC football. Now, they're barely at the NCAA minimum for sports sponsorship. Unreal...

                  The fight at Florida Tech is on. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...TIdTWhe7-GtViH

                  From 2019 when 3 sports were cut: http://floridatechsports.com/news/20...x?path=general

                  "Florida Tech Reduces Athletics Offerings to Focus Resources

                  Florida Tech Athletics Director Bill Jurgens said that this move will allow the university to better focus its finite athletic resources across the remaining 18 varsity sports."

                  Now in 2022: https://floridatechsports.com/news/2...itiveness.aspx

                  "Florida Tech Realigns Athletics Offerings to Focus Resources, Increase Competitiveness

                  Currently, with 17 sponsored varsity sports, our resources are simply spread too thin to adequately support each at a competitive level. Our Athletic Department is committed to leading the conference in scholar-athlete academic success while also fielding highly competitive athletic programs that bring pride to the university. This realignment will empower our core 11 conference sports with the increased resources and focus required to better achieve this vision."

                  The funny part is some of the sports that have been cut are the ones that are competitive in winning postseason contests and a national championship. Again, this is coming on the heels of the chaos in baseball and men's lacrosse that included a player walk-out.

                    What a croc. Did they cut the athletic director? Looks like this has been an on going issue with football and this announcement. Might as well go D3. With crap like this how do you expect to attract athletes?

                              Westmont College Warriors

                              Staten Island, Frostburg State to become DII members

                              Staten Island and Frostburg State will become Division II members Sept. 1.

                              The Division II Membership Committee made the decision earlier this week in Indianapolis after the two schools successfully completed the three-year reclassification process from Division III to Division II.

                              The Division II membership will total 296 colleges and universities in 2022-23.

                              The Membership Committee approved several other schools' advancement in the reclassification process, including D'Youville advancing to provisional year three.

                              The committee agreed that Allen University, Edward Waters University and Emory & Henry can transition to provisional year two of the membership process.

                              Lastly, three schools that applied for Division II membership Thomas More University, the University of South Carolina Beaufort and Westmont College were accepted into the Division II membership process and will begin provisional year one in the fall. All three schools will transition from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

                              The Division II Management Council will review all membership decisions during its in-person meeting Monday and Tuesday in Indianapolis. Changes will take effect Sept. 1.
