I don't know the history of Stevens in the Landamrk, but I assume there' some bad blood?  From an academic standpoint, Stevens to the Freedom makes no sense, regardless of them all being private institutions.

Well to be honest... Stevens is a tough fit in a LOT of conferences ... they just don't have a lot of choices. But I don't think they are a stretch too much from the Freedom - again, on paper looks different than reality. All conferences have their extremes to some extent, even the UAA. FDU Florham, DeSales, and others are closer to Stevens if the direction you are referring. Maybe they don't seem to fit a Wilkes or DVU, but I have also found that sometimes I discover schools like a Wilkes are far grander academically than I even knew in the past. But, I don't want to speak for schools too much.

Their history in the Landmark is simple: they were a founding member along with Catholic, Drew, Goucher, Juniata, Moravian, Susquehanna, and USMMA. The conference formed and suddenly Stevens left. There are stories out there, I cannot share what I know (sorry). Then suddenly they were in the Empire 8... the Landmark then invited Scranton to round out the eight.

I remember it as the Landmark formed, Stevens was suddenly out just days later, and 24 hours after leaving was in the Empire 8 ... but my memory of the timing has gotten fuzzy.

Just heard that York is leaving the CAC for the MAC-Commonwealth, beginning in 2020-21.  Although I expected this, it's still a big ouch.  Anyone aware of any other potential transfers in or out, or could this be the final nail in the coffin for the CAC?

The CAC was already losing AQ status when PSU-Harrisburg and Frostburg announced they were leaving after this year.  With York bolting, that leaves 5 schools. I'm most interested to see what happens to CNU and UMW, both traditionally very good programs.  Also curious to see if this shakes up the MAC, with some teams moving from the Commonwealth into the Freedom.

To be clear ... the CAC won't lose that AQ for two seasons of membership below seven. They will have the AQ for 2019 and 2020 at the very least.
