Just now: 4:02pm- Per Dwight Johnson: meeting adjourned, they will discuss at next BOT meeting.
The next meeting is October 19.
CofC would make the move on July 1 2013 to the CAA if they make the move.
The meeting is going on at Randolph Hall on the College of Charleston campus.
From Andrew Miller at the Post and Courier, who is at the meeting: CofC AD Joe Hull: 'Most athletes CofC recruits don't like SoCon. Hurts in all sports but baseball.'
@mocsbeatCTFP: Is there anyone who doesn't think
Athletic Committee chairman Dwight Johnson say it is 'not just an athletic decision' to move to CAA. Hull says that the SoCon also costs him more athletes than they gain.
CofC will be at the bottom of the CAA as far as budget for basketball. Johnson: 'Majority of coaches of CofC support move to CAA." "The move to CAA would cost school $580,000 more in travel and $20,000 more in annual conference fee."
CofC has fourth highest athletic budget in SoCon when you take out football and scholarship at private schools.
Hull says: 'Basketball head coach's salary is above average when compared to rest of CAA.' 50 national TV games in CAA. SoCon has 4 national TV games. "SoCon basketball is nearly invisible on national stage.'
This meeting is still going on. Some people are against the move, like former Cougar radio announcer Tony Ciuffo.
Ciuffo's son, Nick, is a nationally-ranked baseball player from Lexington, SC.
John Reynolds, a former Citadel basketball player, says:
Cost of travel and academics seem to have other committee members worried about this move, says @KevinLive5.
