    Sounds like a rerun of the "Twilight Zone"

      As far as Virginia State goes, we [administration and Alumni] keep having this discussion and the consensus is and has been that we’re staying in the CIAA. Moving to the MEAC at the bargain rate of $1 million ain’t worth it and we like being at a level (D2) that allows us to realistically compete for national championships in all sports. The University publishes a Vision Plan every 5 years and they keep putting a “comprehensive review of current state and possible realignment prospects” in there, and every 5 years they take a survey of alumni, the majority of whom want to be CIAA for Life and end of discussion.....
      Didn't the current strategic plan say something about a possible move to FCS? I have to review it again but I thought I saw that. Anyway, as an alum I wouldn't want to go to the MEAC anyway. To move up to the worst conference in D1 is crazy for a million dollars. I don't want to stay in D2 forever because winning a championship doesn't seems like it helps the school's visibility.

      WSSU folks - Did winning a D2 championship help the school? If so, in what ways

        WSSU didn't win.

        It's helped a lot of schools without a doubt.

          From what I've heard NCCU holds the cards for the MEAC future as long as they stand pat the conference will survive with it's current members. Can't see any expansion as no CIAA schools are in position to make the jump up besides maybe VSU or WSSU if they wanted to jump back up. I don't see the NEC knocking on DSU's door so they have no other conference to jump to and they're too prideful to drop down to D2. That leaves BCU and SCSU both who face financial and or accreditation issues as the big pieces to the puzzle. If they stabilize enrollment/finances/accreditation then the MEAC will stick as is.

            WSSU is in no position to revisit a Division I transition. We are D2 for the foreseeable future.
