Statement from Commissioner Kyle B. Kallander on Stony Brook


- Big South Conference Commissioner Kyle B. Kallander has issued the following statement in regards to Stony Brook's announced move to the Colonial Athletic Association for football beginning in 2013.

"When the Big South brought in Stony Brook as an associate member in football, it was understood that it was not a permanent relationship.  It makes sense that they are interested in a better geographic conference fit.  Stony Brook has been a terrific football member and we valued their competitive contributions and the friendships that have developed.  We also believe the Big South has been very good for Stony Brook.

"The Big South is confident about its football future and will continue to actively work to enhance our current programs and expand our membership."
