  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    No idea really, it seems odd though that a reporter would state it so bluntly if there wasn't. Augie probably wouldn't mind playing football against a bunch of small private schools in the Pioneer. What I don't get is why would the SD schools want this?

    Pioneer League would be their only move or I guess they could go the Omaha route.

    He also tweeted this out today.....

    Honestly, it would be ideal if IPFW left and we brought in both UNC and UMKC. The Summit would basically be a true great plains league at that point.

    UMKC or UNC not sure what the difference is. I'd love to grab NMSU but that seems unlikely.
  6. Non-UND FCS Thread

    There was a massive gap between JMU/NDSU and the rest of the FCS. You could have flipped them in the playoff bracket and I don't think the end result would change, both teams would still be playing each other in Frisco. It is what it is. SHSU and Wofford aren't cupcakes or sisters of the poor, they just match up very poorly with a physical team like NDSU.

    If the AD's, coaches and players called the shots they would but the elitist snobs that run the universities(mainly Harvard) will not lower themselves to compete in the FCS playoffs.

    The Big North concept is solid on paper but in reality you have a school like Montana that is extremely conservative when it comes to realignment. They have had opportunities to leave, yet they stick around. That gives me doubt since they are the big piece that you would need to get to make it work. I'm not sure who is panic stricken in the Summit, IPFW maybe since they are out on the island now but they don't really have anywhere to go. People like to talk about the Horizon or MVC getting bigger but neither of those leagues make bold moves. The MVC especially has been pretty small-time in their realignment philosophy. Maybe that changes but both of them made the most predictable and safe choice in who they just added.

    I still think the Horizon adds 1, you don't go to 12 unless you are making a push to strengthen the league and everything I've seen shows them looking at a bunch of mediocre schools.

    The new arena had nothing to do with impressing the MVC. It was something that had to get done, the BSA was one of the 10 worst facilities in the nation. The coaches were embarrassed to even show it to recruits. Since the school can't bond because the state is run by idiots with zero vision, it is hard to build anything that is ambitious or best meets the needs of the school without the city or a donor like Ralph. The only facility FB lacks is an IPF, that can be built and is probably next on the facility agenda. The bubble meets that need for the time being and it was a pretty good temporary solution while more pressing issues were addressed.

    Yeah, I think they would take a look at the Indiana schools but I guess my point is those schools won't do a lot for GB. If the Summit could trade the Indiana schools for GB and UMKC that would be a nice swap.
  12. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    It might but losing Milwaukee and Valpo are two pretty big blows for that league. Leaving GB kind of isolated.
  13. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I think Milwaukee will be the 12th, I don't know what school in the MVC would even push for Omaha. UNI is the closest public school and I think they would prefer Milwaukee since Wisconsin is a big recruiting area for them. If the Horizon loses Valpo and Milwaukee could the Summit make a run at GB?

    The WAC idea had way too many moving pieces. The Summit/Big North idea is somewhat simpler but still requires a lot of things happening.

    I'm pretty sure they want this wrapped up the middle of May at the latest.
