Colonial Athletic Association commissioner Tom Yeager told caahoops.com that Georgia State and the Sun Belt Conference are “pretty far down the road,” but he doesn’t know what the outcome will be.
If Georgia State were to leave, Yeager said he would try to replace them. The Panthers have been members of the conference in 2005. They will play their first conference football schedule this year.
If Georgia State is going to leave, it may need to do so quickly.
Yeager said there is a conference call scheduled on Tuesday for the presidents and athletic directors to discuss raising the exit fee from $250,000 to at least $1 million. It will take a two-thirds vote to pass.
