UND to Summit/MVFC

How many teams does the league need before auto bids are taken away? Is it 6?

Seven are the minimum needed if the conference has football. Conference want more than that for having enough conference games and to give a margin of safety if one leaves.

Seven are still needed without football, but two more male team sports need to be sponsored with at least six each.  UND and others would have to add baseball and men’s soccer to keep the Summit League autobid.  WIU, IPFW, ORU, and Omaha are the key players, as they have both sports.  That is back*ss stupid, as those four schools are the least valuable.  The Dakotas and Denver are fb and hockey centered schools - which is where most of their revenue comes in.  Hockey could be used, but NDSU, SDSU, and USD would all have to add it and UND, Omaha and Denver would have to drop out of the NCHC.  That is not happening to say the least.

It also would not work to incorporate the MVFC under the Summit umbrella.  UNI and Mo St must be added as core members and that is not happening either.

why didn't imperial cass become the home for the ncc 2.0?

Sioux Falls is better at giving free office space.   The Ramkota Inn may still have the old NCC office space empty.

But in all fairness, Midco has its corporate HQ in Sioux Falls.  And they have a top notch B.B. arena that makes it easy for the Summit to man the tournament.

Isn’t it a $35 mill renovation of their old Quonset hut?  But bisonville still complains about not having enough room for their stomachs, and not nearly enough leg space.

Leg room was horrible when me and my family went to the UND-NDSU game in 2016-17 season. You almost had to stand on your seat to let people by. They vowed last season to fix that, not sure if they did that or not.

So with schools like IPFW and Oral Roberts out of the footprint of the Summit and WIU in financial trouble maybe adding Augustana isn’t a bad idea to keep the number of teams up. Of course 5 years of making Augy a full DI member puts a time limit on their move, sooner the better.

Division II members take  five years before DI would include them as a core Summit member.   The SSummit has historically lost a member every year.  It needs existing DI members.

May 31st is the DII to DI deadline unless they wait another year.   Doesn’t look like Augie, or Mankato, SCSU or Duluth will get an invite before that date.

Yo Sioux Volley what kind of conspiracy can you attach to this information.

i saw they repainted the basketball floor but did not include the summit conference logo. Does this mean we won't be in the Summit for long and are possibly entertaining joining a FBS conference? That totally must be it.

The Summit logo is on the new court, check the thread about the feud between Kennedy and REA. People posted photos.

The REA takes paid advertisements on the Betty floor.

The logo is towards the top of the key by the free throw line.
