I think that ETSU will try to return to the SoCon. They are voting this week to re-instate football. I never understood why they were asked to leave the SoCon when they dropped football, yet the SoCon allowed College of Charleston in with no football...

They were asked/forced to leave because dropping football put them in violation of SoCon bylawys. Schools are required to field football, men's basketball, and at least 4 other championship sports. The conference granted football waivers to CoC, Davidson, and UNCG. I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think ETSU dropping football (and VMI leaving around the same time) put their auto-bid to the football tournament in jeopardy, so the conference didn't want to grant them a football waiver. I think they were able to get Elon to join in order to keep the auto-bid.

That makes some sense...though I can say at the time, most around here thought it was rather petty. Now I guess the SoCon will have to scramble and if there are hard feelings at ETSU, I may have been wrong...they may have no interest in returning to the SoCon. I just know ETSU is voting tomorrow (I think) to re-instate football
