CAA not actively pursuing expansion

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The ACC is expanding, the Big East is imploding, and the Big 12, is just trying to stay alive.  So how long between the conference juggling that is wreaking havoc in the BCS, trickles down to the CAA?

The New York Times has reported that Hofstra's president is openly recruiting schools to join the Colonial Athletic Association, including the University of Richmond.

But CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager admitted that the conference is not actively pursuing anyone.  Yeager said in a statement:

"We will not comment on membership matters until the appropriate time for an official announcement.  Like most conferences, we are all monitoring the ongoing conference realignment discussions and are being proactive in determining whether membership moves might strengthen the conference".

Yeager told the Daily Press that he believes all of his schools are happy, and aren't looking to leave.  And while the league's not necessarily looking to expand, it will if it feels like that's what's best for the conference.
