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:
East Tennessee St
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.
