[mpoverlay]Relocation rumors continue to surround the elite programs in Division I HBCU athletics, with today’s installment focused on Hampton University and a possible defection to the CAA. If the change is to come for Hampton, the move makes a lot of sense. The Pirates have been championship contenders in the MEAC since elevating to Division I in the early 90′s, and would enjoy a great recruiting advantage over a third of their potential CAA counterparts – Delaware, Towson, William & Mary and UNC-Wilmington.
More money, more competitive balance, more exposure. Is it go time for Hampton? And more importantly, is it the beginning of the end of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference?
