A move would cost the university too much money, period. as a whole, we are near the bottom of the CAA in spending on athletics. Its certainly not cheaper in the A10
That said, I would have maybe popped in for a game when I lived in Brooklyn, but most people there probably know more about the good city high school teams than the teams in the A-10
It's not complicated for those that are trying to figure it out. As it stands RIGHT NOW the odds are:
The CAA's best days are AHEAD, teh A-10s are BEHIND.
That's why we sit still and see what comes to pass instead of knee jerking a response.
Only three things in this world make me nervous: snakes, un-tuned guitars and red-headed women.

I just see the A-10 minus Temple and possibly Xavier leaving as a weak dog. I like the media markets the CAA covers and the geographic footprint.
The CAA will take a big bump in quality if we were to trade Hofstra for College of Charleston bolstering UNCW and GSU geographically.

Resist, refuse, and defeat the power of Tyranny. Bring the USA back from its great mistake.
Pikapp, if the A-10 fizzles out, Charlotte might join the CAA.
I don't see that we're in any better of a position in regards to the A-10 as a conference:
ODU, JMU, and GSU have FBS ambitions. If the opportunity arises, they're gone.
VCU wants to be the top basketball team in the state of Virginia. I think they'll jump into the A-10 if given the chance (with hopes of a Big East split invite when it happens)
We're also in danger of losing Delaware to FBS if the right opportunity arises as well.
Yeager, in an attempt to salvage CAA Football will most likely target lower level playing football schools looking to move into a better FCS conference -- so think Coastal Carolina, Stony Brook, Albany, Furman etc. None of whom sound too appealing to a basketball school like Mason.
The same thing that can happen to the A-10 can happen to the CAA, but for different reasons.
