Emails show that Kentucky State University officials were interested in the MEAC

Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.

The only constant in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference over the last few years has been change.

Since 2019, four members of the MEAC have left for other leagues. Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M's departure for the SWAC was made official earlier this month. Savannah State reclassified back to Division II in 2019, and Hampton left for the Big South in 2018. With the most recent SWAC defections, the MEAC has just eight members, only six of whom play football.

This is a conference that absolutely needs to expand.

“We’ve never taken any tangible or proactive action,” he said. “There have been conversations, but nothing tangible has been placed on my desk.”

While it's true that Kentucky State has not formally applied to join the MEAC, emails obtained by Extra Points, via Open Records Request, indicate that Kentucky State's interest in potentially reclassifying extended beyond idle chit-chat with alumni and boosters.
