    Long story short, Bethune-Cookman is in all sorts of financial troubles and has been put on probation. They agreed to a horrible deal to build a new dorm which somehow on paper was to cost over $70 million but based off of a lease/financing agreement they will end up having to pay over $300 million in the long run. It appears that the documents were forged, which B-CU could prove; however, they still went through with the deal. I think there have also been defaults and lawsuits against the builder.

    Also, add to that a lot of administration turnover. However, they finally named their new President (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...423-story.html).
    I wonder if Bethune follows Savannah State and comes back to D2. B-C was a SIAC member until 1979. I didn't realize until looking at it recently, that B-C is in the range of 3,600 for enrollment, that's a good size for D2 and fits into the overall enrollment range of the SIAC. I never like seeing schools close but with Paine losing accreditation and their NCAA future/overall future in jeopardy, the SIAC would benefit from adding both Edward Waters and Bethune-Cookman.

      Another potential SIAC member has entered the picture: https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/com...emb_Report.pdf

      Allen is located across the street from Benedict. I don't know whether to expect them to be approved for Division II membership.

        I haven't seen anything official from Allen's website (though that's probably because of reduced staffing due to the COVID pandemic). Even so, I would've thought that either the school or the SIAC would've announced something official by now.

          EWC continues to work towards accepting the SIAC invitation. Earlier this year, announcements were made that three sports would be added and now it is being reported that Men's Volleyball is being added. It will play a SIAC schedule in the 2021-22 season under a similar agreement that football currently has.

            One of the six SIAC schools adding men's volleyball was Paine. Neither the school nor the SIAC has addressed Paine's loss of NCAA membership.

              Yeah if it wasn't for the report of the July Membership Committee meeting we would not know anything about what is happening at Paine. Although Paine has been removed from the NCAA Directory, the SIAC still has them on their site. The opposite is true for New York Tech, still listed in the Directory but removed from the ECC site. Both schools still have the NCAA and conference logos on their landing pages.

              Edward Waters adding the sport helps the SIAC get that all-important sixth team and the AQ in the future. Provided EWC actually does get to move to the SIAC.

                Observations from the EWC men's volleyball presentation. It's sounding like EWC is going to try to apply to D2 in Feb 2021 in anticipation of being off NAIA probation by the time membership decisions are made in Jul. All EWC athletics programs is on "Probation through the end of 2020-2021 academic year". The representative from First Point Volleyball listed the SIAC members but did not list Paine College. The College is working towards University status.
