The MEAC has been planning to rebuild its conference membership with new members after experiencing an exodus of former members that bolted for other conference
VSU would come into the MEAC with a natural rivalry with Norfolk State, one of the newest and best basketball facilities of all HBCU’s, and the travel footprint that easily accessible by bus.VSU would be perfect.
Kentucky State would take them from almost being an exclusive bus trip conference but would be interesting with that option and access to better D1 athletes

How often does Kentucky State travel to Al, Fl, and Ga?As long as both teams have their $1.7 Million Dollar fee for the NCAA to make the move from D2 to D1, then I'll say "go for it."
Virginia State is a better fit geographically. Kentucky State's travel budget will be quite expensive especially since they would be making long trips to the East Coast.

True, and money could be better used for up keep of the school.This only makes business sense for Virginia State, and even that's questionable because they would have to increase scholarships for the sixteen sports they play or look at possibly dropping two or three spots. The FCS is not a money maker, but if that's what they want I wish them well.
