« on: June 07, 2018, 09:10:34 PM »

Big news as Cheyney is dropping out of the PSAC come June 30 and filling the void is perennial power, Shepherd. 

The Rams will play starting in 2019 in the PSAC East.

Is that "Shepherd' as in West Virginia? And they are playing in the East?

Yep.  They are playing in the East because they are taking Cheyney’s spot.  My guess is they may realign but probably easier to put them in the East.

Similar to when Carolina joined the NFL and they were put in the NFC West because they only had 4 teams and all other NFC divisons had 5.

Are they going to change the PSAC name now that they are going to take out of state schools. Cheney should drop basketball, too.  They are hurting for money and are in danger of closing..as are a couple other of the PSAC schools, like Clarion and Edinboro. Sccording to a report in the PG here, the Boro and Clarion are having enrollment problems. Slippery Rock was only school on an increase.  Probably one reason that it was announced that some new degree offerings are showing up at E  and C..sort of specialized things that might attract some students.

I believe Cheyney is done in basketball and Shepherd is taking that spot too.

The PSAC added a team from Long Island about a decade ago as a football only member for a few years. They left once the Conference added Seton Hill, UPJ, Gannon, and Mercyhurst.
