    A little help here from my friends, please.

    I'm updating my football links page, and I'm moving the teams around for conference changes.

    All I can see is that Temple has moved into the MAC, and Western Kentucky has moved into I-A as an independent.

    Anybody know any more? And while we're at it, are there any I-AA conference changes?

    Don't know offhand other changes, but check out Nationalchamps.net. Not only is it a good site, but it's the home of the incredible Helmet Project.

    The Helmet Project is one of my favorite sites. Ask DyePack.

    Oh, wait ... you can't. ;)

    I've had your sites bookmarked for a while... thanks for doing this.

    Just wanted to give you a heads-up for your basketball pages (you might know this already) ... Valparaiso has moved to the Horizon League, and the Mid-Con has been renamed the Summit League ... or Horizon League Lite, if you will.

    For FCS changes: In 2008, the Big South adds Stony Brook as an associate football member. Stony Brook will play as an independent this season. Presbyterian begins a long trek up to DI and is an independent this year. They'll be on all of the Big South schedules by next year but can't compete for a league championship until 2011.

    I believe the Gateway adds North Dakota State and South Dakota State in '08. Duquesne moves out of the MAAC and into the NEC in 2008. North Carolina Central is up and playing as an independent this season, and Winston-Salem State has moved into the MEAC full-time starting this season. Campbell is starting non-scholarship football in 2008 but I don't know where they'll play. North Dakota and South Dakota begin their transition in 2008 and will play in the Great West, replacing NDSU and SDSU.

    Austin Peay rejoined the OVC this year in football after playing for several years in the Pioneer League.

    In I-AA (or whatever the hell they call it now), the Atlantic 10 is now the Colonial Athletic Association

    South Dakota and North Dakota are joining the I-AA Great West Football Conference in 2008. Not sure if they're still D-II this year or not.

    They're still in their exploratory period, and eligible for DII championships this year, I believe.
