State of the Conference: The Atlantic Sun Conference

The Atlantic Sun Conference is at the bottom of the totem pole as far as NCAA Division I conferences in the Southeastern United States go.  The league does not sponsor football although a few of its members field non-scholarship football teams or plan to do so.  It's members are:

Northern Kentucky
East Tennessee St
USC Upstate
Kennesaw St
North Florida
Florida Gulf Coast

Schools in Blue are private.

As a feeder league it will likely lose programs to the leagues above them in prestige, particularly the Big South and SoCon.  They will likely have to bring in NCAA Division II teams to maintain the minimum of 7 teams.
