  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Sorry Darrell, have to ask what is stable about a 5 team conference? Leaves the 4 Dakotas and Denver
  2. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Compared to the Summit as a whole? Absolutely!

    Studsrud must get better at connecting on the swing passes and screen passes. He should get better at seeing the whole field rather than locking on to his primary receiver. He is an outstanding game manager and field general already. Add those elements and the Hawks should go a long ways with the experience that is returning from 2016.

    So, you think NDSU will be the next to leave the Summit?

    Instead of attempting to derail the conversation, why don't you contribute to it? What does the Summit do to stabilize in your view Bison73?

    Thank you for your insights, Yote 53. Question now becomes: do the university presidents and the commissioner's office have the same vision and the cajones to pull it off?

    To Yote 53 and jacksfan29... USD and SDSU are probably the most committed institutions in the Summit. How do you see the Summit surviving? What do you think the plan is to stabilize? I'm not trolling, but really concerned that UND is moving to a 'convenient travel' conference that has a history of struggling to stay full. Is there a possibility of poaching other D-I schools (whether it is No Colorado, Montanas, etc)? Will the Summit merge with another conference (MVC, WAC)? Are there D-II move-ups (realizing that there is a considerable transition period before they 'count')? would like to hear your perspectives.

    Yup UND is not the Sioux any more, so time to put up...

    Wasn't he given an honorary doctorate a few years ago? Wouldn't that be claiming him?

    There has been so much hand-wringing, so many theories for strengthening the Summit... Would really like to see the formation of a Great Northern Conference - add the Montanas, Idaho, EWU. Probably a long shot to get them to leave the Big Sky. Doubt the MVC will be willing to give up control of the MVFC to the Summit, even though they share offices, iirc. A nice idea though, if you could pull it off. Get the MVC to add the Dakota 4. Their recent solution of adding Valpo suggests that will not happen. IMHO, it seems that the fastest way to 'fix' this is by <choke> getting the old band back together. Entice Northern Colorado to leave the Big Sky and reunite the former NCC schools who have moved to D-I under the Summit banner. It will give the Summit 6 football teams, add a basketball team that has made a March Madness appearance and adds a baseball team (which wouldn't be as important if the Summit were to break off into their own football conference), but no men's soccer. For soccer, the answer is probably to add UMKC. The addition of UNC and UMKC would bring the Summit back to 10 after IPFW bolts next year and gives the Summit the baseball and soccer teams it needs. Plus it would make the option of Summit football possible with the Dakota 4, Western Illinos and Northern Colorado. Then add Minnesota State and/or Minnesota Dukuth as a move-up for insurance for WIU and Oral Roberts. Don't like this idea as much as just staying put in the Big Sky, but afraid that ship has sailed and UND's move to the Summit is inevitable.

    hope you are right about this
