  1. To maintain the basketball autobid, you will need to bring in another baseball playing school to replace Omaha. That is why on a recent post I advocated bringing in Northern Colorado. They could be travel partners with Denver. Although, I honestly don't know much about the relationship between UNC and Denver. Bringing in UNC also provides 6 schools paying football, which would allow for Summit football in the future.
  2. I started a thread about that topic over on egriz...
  3. With an I-29 based conference, maybe they can go back to calling it the Mid Continent Conference. I never have cared for the name Summit League. It sounds like a women's over 60 Tuesday night bowling league.
  4. if I were Douple, looking at the long term health of the conference, I would be exploring Summit football. If the rumors are true about Murray going to the MVC, is it possible that WIU would go to the OVC, as Murray's replacement? The conference has taken a shift westward, leaving WIU on an island of sorts. An island somewhat closer to the OVC footprint, Then you have the Indiana alphabet schools. Fort Wayne plays baseball. Could they be plucked by the Horizon? You need 6 for baseball and If WIU or Ft. Wayne leaves, you only have 5.
  5. With Sioux Falls becoming more of a hockey town with the Stampede, expanding the "Fighting Hawk" brand into Yote/Bunny territory is a good thing. Put the regional in Sioux Falls a few times, more Hawk fans.
  6. As I see it.... 1. UND is not part of the current MVC expansion conversation, nor should they be. 2. It would not be good for UND, if one or more of the other Dakota schools left the Summit, with UND just joining to cut travel expenses. 3. SDSU is the most attractive of the Dakota schools for potential membership, due to combination of geography, facilities and basketball history for both the men's and women's programs.
  7. And Omaha.
  8. And add the Montanas. They see the Big Sky as a sinking ship anyway, according to their forums.
  9. As I said last week, if you add UNC, you then have 6 schools playing football. You could start Summit football.
  10. I would think that SDSU would be a more attractive choice than NDSU. They have a better overall basketball history and have a good women's basketball program to boot. Also better geographically. I know that they have the Summit tournament in their backyard and that would play into any decisions, but I can't imagine that if the MVC asked, SDSU would say no.
  11. Not to pile on here, but there is no interest in Women's Hockey at UND. This is a Box score from a playoff game. Attendance 210. That does not generate enough money to turn the lights on. My kid's church league soccer games gets better attendance than that. I can almost say it would be "okay" if they lost money and there was a following and interest. It just isn't there. Okay, yes, I am piling on.
  12. The ladies had a nice sweep of SDSU (6-0, 4-3) this week to get back on the winning track. Congrats!
  13. I had not heard of the dire budget problems in Nebraska before. “We could close the University of Nebraska [at] Kearney and still have to find $10 million,” said University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds.
