    Watching Northern Kentucky totally destroy Wright State right now. Man I wish we had their recruiter on our staff. They have a lot of talent on that squad!

    We need to add them to the MVC along with Murray State. They now have three Horizon League titles in a row (2 tournament, 1 regular season). Their arena would also be one of the best in the MVC. If I was in charge I would be making the phone calls first thing tomorrow.

    Add Murray State and Northern Kentucky tomorrow. Two solid programs, two potential regional rivals, one incredible fan base (Murray) and one incredible arena (NKU).

    And throw “but the MVC can never be more than 1 bid” out the window. Jerry Palm is projecting Greensboro and Furman to make the tournament. 3 bids for SoCon. He’s historically one of the most accurate bracketologists.

    Other than the discussion on message boards, what hard evidence is there that makes you think the MVC wants to expand?

    That isn't the question.

    What benefit to any MVC team is there to add more schools and dilute what little revenue we get?

    The only way I'd ever consider entertaining expansion is if the NCAA guaranteed multiple bids for the top X non P5 conferences.

    Don't give me that tired ass rising tide raises all boats bullshit either.

    What happened to the Valley this year fresh off the Loyola Final 4 run? The USS MVC hit a damned iceberg.

    Hey Jason, haven't you ever heard the saying, "A rising tide raises all ships". I'm sorry, I just had to do it.

    I'm sorry, but what we'd lose by adding two teams is chump change. We'd lose $28,000 in a 6 year period. If we can't afford to lose that then we should join the GLVC (D2) and I'm 100% serious. If one of those schools won a tournament game they would more than pay for themselves.

    Yet we need that money to buy D2 home games because we can't afford to pay D1 schools.

    As I hinted upon previously, how many empty seats were @ Arch Madness this year? Multiply this times the games that Murray State would've been playing this year w/ their 1st Rd. NBAer Morant. Enterprise Center holds 22,000 for basketball. I consider this the "opportunity cost" of NOT having Murray State in the MVC THIS season alone.

    The MVC's maintenance of a "protectionist image" simply fails to pass muster.
