According to a short statement, the council "voted by acclamation to deny the University of Alabama in Huntsville's application to become a member of the conference."

UAH officials were stunned by the decision.

"We are certainly disappointed in the decision and feel like our program has a lot to offer to any league," said UAH director of athletics Jim Harris. "We are going to look at other options that are available to us and then move forward."
