College of Charleston to the Colonial, though I haven't seen a definite date for this to happen.  Apparently Davidson decided to stay put in the SoCon and won't join CofC in the CAA.
poor decision for CoC. With Davidson, it might have been a conference that could get 2 bids in a good year. All they did was go from one one bid conference to another while increasing travel costs.

Perhaps they're entertaining adding football.

Even if they are not, the Colonial is usually top 15 RPI for basketball, while the SoCon is top 25.  The Colonial has a better chance at 2 bids. 

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

Davidson doesn't want to play better competition in conference play. They have it made in SoCon.

CAA > SoCon.  Much better.  Davidson would no longer be a small fish in a small pond containing even smaller fish.

Definitely have to agree that CAA is better hoops conference than SoCon, even with the departures of ODU and VCU from the former.

App State has no FBS home.  At this point, no one is showing any interest in them.  Unlikely to happen unless they become part of a start up FBS league.
Ummmm.   :-\
