    and FYI, NDSU has named long time DC Matt Entz to be the new HC, some stuff flying around about Grant Olson making his way back to NDSU

    True, they have 5 FB playing members, 4 in the MVFC and an Independent... Who's going to be the 6th FB member? The Mastadons? Neb-Omaha dropped football in 2011, partly to be more 'SL compliant' AND to meet Title IX requirements... Say, maybe Oral Bob will kick off a football team...

    I don't see SL adding fball anytime soon

    ^ Rumor on the street is that they want to add Northern Colorado. Even if they did they'd probably want 1-2 more schools so they wouldn't have to schedule so many non-conference games. Supposedly the WAC is also interested in starting FCS football with some D2 move ups.

    My WIU proposal was for if we joined the OVC. The private schools in the MVC would never allow 5 public schools to join the league. They are probably the reason Murray State wasn't invited in the first place. The "11 thing" almost seems more like a cover up story than reality. The MWC, Big Sky, and MAAC all operate with 11 fine.

    Aside from scheduling i don’t see an advantage to having 10-12 teams in a conference. I realize that means a few at large spots but i think a 6 or 8 team conference is better. Maybe scheduling is a huge deal but id rather drive 5-12 hours south than north in november

    Read their Strat Plan, I'm guessing 2030 is their goal to be Div I... They have ~1,600 undergrads... they'll fit right in with powerhouses VMI, Wofford and Presbyterian...

    There are far, FAR too many schools in Div I who have the resources to be in Div II, Augustana will be another
