The Belmont University Bruins have been the team to beat in the Atlantic Sun Conference which also includes: East Tennessee State, Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, North Florida, South Carolina Upstate and Stetson.

The Bruins have won the conference championship in five of the past seven years, but the school is leaving after this school year.

Starting next year with the 2012-13 school year, Belmont will be competing in the Ohio Valley Conference.

The benchmark school in the OVC has the been the Murray State Racers who have dominated the league recently.

The OVC and the Atlantic Sun have been one-bid leagues and the NCAA has rarely taken two from a mid-major conference.

Belmont was established in 1890, has 6,374 students and located in Nashville, Tennessee. The school has 15 varsity sports, 8 for women, 7 for men.

Their most notable alumni includes: Jimmy Bowen, record producer; Christian music artist Steven Curtis Chapman; country artist Brad Paisley; TV star Minnie Pearl, born Sarah Cannon; country artist Pam Tillis, Mel Tillis’ daughter; country artist Lee Ann Womack and country artist Trisha Yearwood.

Tulane football coach Toledo resigns

UTEP beat Tulane University 44-7 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Saturday and the fans in New Orleans chanted “fire coach Toledo.”

Earlier this week,  Tulane head coach Bob Toledo met with athletic director Rick Dickson and the two mutually agreed that the football coach should resign.

Dickson has named Mark Hutson as the interim coach for Tulane’s remaining six games. Hutson also was the interim head coach at Eastern Illinois in 2006. Hutson has been the Green Wave’s offensive line coach for all five years with Toledo. He led Eastern Illinois to a co-Ohio Valley Conference championship and an 8-5 record in his season as interim head coach and he has also been an assistant at Tulsa and Arkansas.

Toledo, who is 65, a former head coach at UCLA, took over the Tulane Green Wave in 2007. Eventhough his record was 13-35 in his first four years, Toledo received a two-year extension after last season in the hope his recruiting efforts would pay off with a winning season in 2011, but the team is 2-5 and has been blown out by Tulsa, Duke, Army and UTEP.
