LIU merges campus, will play FCS Football in 2019

Brooklyn Campus was already DI in the NEC, Post Campus was DII with Football.


All of LIU's teams will continue competing in their current conferences for the 2018-19 academic year, honoring schedules with opponents. The unification will be effective for competition beginning in Fall 2019. The university will elevate seven current Post programs to Division I, including expanding its membership in the Northeast Conference with men's cross country, men's lacrosse and football, which will make the transition to the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).

This initiative will put students first by providing additional opportunities and the university will honor current scholarships to student-athletes. LIU is committed, first and foremost, to all of its student-athletes graduating on time, with a LIU diploma.

"The Northeast Conference looks forward to the growth and enhancement of the league through the unification of the LIU athletic departments into a more robust Division I program with the addition of LIU's football, men's lacrosse, and men's cross country teams to the conference," noted Northeast Conference Commissioner Noreen Morris. "With the announcement of the LIU unification, we are excited about the future of LIU Athletics and the NEC."

89Henette's school plays in the NEC so I've seen them play bball many times. My guess is they will suck at FB.

Add another schools to the FCS ranks. Always good to see the FCS expand.

The Hens used to play CW Post regularly 40 years ago. Haven't really paid attention to them in that long. Looks like they play in a pretty weak conference.

While they've been good, they're probably in the weakest conference in the weakest Super Region in DII. So yes, they'll fit nicely in the NEC. 8-)

Merging campuses eh...

Watch out for the University of Montana State BobGriz's in 2024. I assume they'll alternate home stadiums. It will be super annoying.

Nah, UM will end up merging with Providence/UGF for some reason. Then they'll end up playing all their home games for some weird sport called footketvolley at a makeshift stadium in Lincoln.

Exactly my question too

I love how the article only uses the acronym and assumes the reader knows

I'm sure someday there will be a University of Montana-Portland campus for all the kids of Griz alums in Oregon to have a place to get a UM education and pay in state tuition. They can even play their games in Hillsboro. :lol:

The football part.

CW Post became Long Island University - Post, and stayed DII, until now.

The original LIU (LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY) became LIU-Brooklyn.

Now they are one combined university, with 6 locations (two residential)

Sort of like the '80s era Packers, right?

SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.
