Yep. 5:09 from Brevard to Rocky Mount
It may be. I did this in haste at la oficina today. It's been a long short week.Thanks for putting this together ... I have to think Brevard to NCWC might be an error ... probably more like 5:15.Brevard is in western NC, so not so far from Maryville, Piedmont and the like. It's a haul to NC Wesleyan in eastern NC and would have been a very long trip to CNU. NC covers a lot of territory east to west ... with Tennessee, you can go Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River in only two states ... same with Virginia and Kentucky or Virginia and Tennessee (and, for you purists, Georgia and Tennessee lol).
I do not think Brevard would be a successful candidate for the ODAC or SAA ... USASAC is, in my opinion, their best option. My nephew attended there as a DII basketball player, so I know their history in the DII South Atlantic Conference.
Me either to the bolded part. I'm just thinking more overall density. The USASC is a huge geographic footprint, although not as bad as the ASC. The south just needs more density to lower the costs in a few of these conferences. The SAA is probably less worried about costs than fit, but I'd think the USASC would love to consolidate a bit. Huntingdon to CNU was a bear, so dropping the northern team helps. But Huntingdon to Averett is still almost 550 miles as is Huntingdon to Methodist. That's a long trip...
Rough travel time from Brevard to the rest of the USA South:
NC Wesleyan 3:15
Huntingdon to CNU is like 11 hours and HC to Ferrum is like 9. Ya win some, ya lose some.
Isn't that the species that bit you in the forehead a year or so ago?
Ha! Who really likes the very young and very old anyway? The spider's almost doing us a favour.
I'm enjoying the off-season discussion. Thanks all for the interest in keeping it going with good questions and good answers.
Does anyone have current info on the open gym summer basketball reported to be at Benedictine and Elmhurst? I emailed Benedictine but didn't get a reply. Thanks for an update if or when you have it.
