    Default Now that Temple has bailed out of the A-10 . . .

    ... which school will be the first to jump to the CAA?

    Richmond?

    Fordham?

    University of Rhode Island?



    And will Charlotte now opt to become a full member in the CAA?

    Probably not going to happen, but if I had to wager it would be Charlotte, for football reasons.

    Charlotte makes the most sense so that will probably never happen. I doubt UR would come back hat in hand to the CAA or that the CAA would be all that receptive about taking them back. Having UR back would help mitigate the VCU home court advantage at the CAA Tournament so that would be a good thing. Rhode Island is dropping down in football from the CAA to the NEC (?) so that would not be all that good of a move for them. Fordham could be interesting. It would give Hofstra someone close and they do have play football.

    We are Old Dominion. We still don't play on Friday.

    Richmond to the CAA would certainly silence the Coliseum. Half the crowd would have gray hair and never stand up or raise their voice.

    Richmond fans hardly exist. Do you remember their lack of excitement when their football team won the FCS title? I think some of them still haven't realized it yet...

    The A-10 could stay at 13, they already have an unbalanced conference schedule. When the Big East eventually splits on football and non-football lines, that would allow for the top A-10 schools to join a hoops only Big East.

    This thread is a hilarious read. No offense to the basketball first fans on this site, but zero "basketball only" schools will be added to the CAA. None. Nada. Zippo. And UR is not coming back to the CAA.

    Football and all-sports membership is the only ticket into the CAA now, and Charlotte would be the #1 choice, but UNCC doesn't want to leave the A10. That leaves schools like SUNY-Albany or Stony Brook upnorth, and perhaps App State or Coastal Carolina down south. Of course, this all depends on if JMU, UD and ODU don't split for the MAC and join UMass as all-sports members of that league.

    I don't see Richmond or URI for the reasons mentioned. The Patriot League is now phasing in scholarships for football and moving away from their merit based aid model. So that likely means Fordham stays put in the A-10 with their Jesuit brothers. Charlotte would be the best bet but even then I'm doubtful.

    That's what I've been hearing. In fact, I have been hearing that they are also planning on downsizing their already tiny stadium.
