Ben Standig is reporting that the Rams are heading to the Atlantic-10 conference for the 2013 season as part of the replacements for Charlotte's move to Conference USA and Temple's move to the Big East.

The Rams join Butler as new neighbors and could be there as Old Dominion looks to possibly leave the conference in the near future since they need to look out for the football interests in other places than the Colonial Athletic Association.

Galactic Realignment guru, CBS Sports Brett McMurphy, says that fellow soon-to-be-ex CAA'er George Mason wasn't even invited to the transfer dance.

On Friday, George Mason, which along with VCU and Butler had discussions with the Atlantic 10, announced it was staying in the CAA. However, sources told at the present time the Atlantic 10 was looking to add only one more school and VCU got the nod over Mason.

And this gets VCU out of a one-bid CAA as well...

Here's the early news from NBC12 in Richmond...

More when we know more...
