Thread: CSI: D2

    Default CSI: D2

    No, not that CSI.

    College of Staten Island has also submitted a membership application alongside Frostburg State to hopefully begin their D2 reclassification later this year. The Dolphins will be a much-needed addition to the East Coast Conference in 2020, replacing LIU Post. CSI is part of the CUNY system with ECC member Queens College and is currently a member of the D3 CUNY Athletic Conference. They don't have football.

    This makes 2 D3-to-D2 applicants to reclassify this year with UT-Tyler already in the process and Mississippi College recently completed. Two others returned to D3 during their reclassifying period. Are there any other current D2 members who came from D3?

    I was hoping to see more on CETYS (possible GNAC football!), but nothing since February of 2018 I can find. I wonder when we will see the first Mexican school try to join or if just not announced yet.

    If CSI had football they could petition the NE10 and maybe fill in the tenth spot, oh well.

    I do know New Haven came up from D3, but that was in like 1982. Pitt-Johnstown moved up a few years ago and is now a PSAC member but doesn’t have football, I think UVA-Wise moved up a few years back and joined the MEC.

    Last I heard CETYS played some D3 schools and community colleges and didn’t fare too well. Nothing about whether they petitioned the NCAA yet.

    I want to say Chowan and Lincoln PA also both moved up from D3 in the last 10-15 years.

    I'm still thinking Christopher Newport out of Newport News, VA will eventually move up from D3 sooner or later.

    What D2 conference would Christopher Newport join? CIAA is an obvious choice but it might create another Chowan situation. The CIAA does not sponsor 8 of CNU's 21 sports. The MEC is a nice choice but there are probably too many people who would complain that it's too far to Newport News. We have already seen those complaints in reference to Salisbury. Conference Carolinas is also a strong possibility and adding CNU will help the CC start sponsoring football. CC does sponsor all of CNU's sports except football.

    CIAA would be perfect from a location perspective, but you are right that there are currently too many of CNU's sports that the CIAA doesn't sponsor.

    Realistically I could see CNU go the CC route like you mentioned, and they would be decent travel partners for Chowan, Mt Olive, and Barton. Also I agree with you about the football part. In a couple of years there will be 5 football playing members and CNU would be a nice addition. Assuming Limestone, NGU, and Chowan would leave their respective football associate memberships then the conference could be close if CNU jumped up. Throw in the potential that UNCP could be a candidate to leave their new MEC membership for the CC, and another CC school adding football, then you actually could see the conference starting to offer the sport within the next 5-10 years.
