Conference Realignment: Old Dominion And Georgia State Ruled Ineligible For CAA Championships This Academic Year

The Old Dominion Monarchs and the Georgia St. Panthers will not be participating in Colonial Athletic Association championship events for the 2012-13 academic year, according to a tweet by Daily Press sports columnist David Teel.

Both programs are leaving the Colonial after this season. While the loss of Georgia State from various championship events should not pose too much of a problem, the loss of Old Dominion, especially in the men's and women's basketball tournaments, could be financially damaging to the conference, especially on the men's side given the exit of the Va. Commonwealth Rams.

This could also be damaging for other teams in the conference, especially the George Mason Patriots who'll lose the Monarchs as a possible tournament opponent that could help their late season at-large chances.
