According to ESPN:
Multiple sources within the CAA told ESPN.com that they expect the Cougars to move to the CAA.
Still not official, but the writing’s on the wall. Davidson on the other hand is officially staying put in the SoCon. Personally, I consider Davidson to be the SoCon’s only premiere basketball team. Sure College of Charleston did ok here, but they never made a huge splash in the NCAA tournament like Davidson did. The bottom line is College of Charleston is replaceable, Davidson is not.
But who do we replace CoC with? Well it has to be a team that has something to gain by coming to the SoCon, someone within the footprint, and probably a basketball/olympic sports only team. But it could be a football school, but that would likely mean a couple of schools are coming along.
No brainer pick. It puts another school in SC to replace Charleston. They would compete in baseball/football/basketball right off the bat.
Fits well within the footprint. Decent RPI. Doubt they would move since OVC fits them better.
They haven’t been good lately, but
