    Volleyball Recruiting

    UND has signed 6’2 McCallister Gayle from Coronado HS, Henderson NV. https://www.ncsasports.org/womens-volleyball-recruiting/nevada/henderson/coronado-high-school10/mccallister-gayle

    Filling the Ralph

    The Ralph could sponsor an esports tournament for students with consoles in their seats when a game is on. Maybe an e-dating site where everyone can be quickly rejected. Just some ideas to entice students to come. Or just reduce the ticket prices for students or at least allow them four games each for free.

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Hopefully, Kennedy got some no strings money out of the deal from Denny. Denny could buy his way for Augie into the MVC if he wanted to, but the MVC doesn’t serve his purposes to make Sioux Falls happy. UMKC just got a new AD from Northridge. http://www.umkckangaroos.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=211780580&DB_OEM_ID=18300

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Had posted about Liberty moving up to FBS and the so-called experts on a realignment board moved it to a smack board as they thought it was so preposterous. But months later it happened, because Liberty has wheelbarrows full of cash and FBS is a good advertisement for tuition. Just today, ESPN is sponsoring a new bowl in Myrtle Beach, because it’s thirst for bowl programming is just about insatiable. Ive been saying this for years, but Presidents get wide-eyed at the thought of a >$1 million payout from the CFP after 2025 when it gets renewed. FCS will be practically drained dry when that happens. Cash drives the college sports world, not wins, but wins helps also with the cash flow.

    kWSN 98.1 Sioux Falls says UMKC will announce tomorrow they will join the Summit and Augie may come after that. Dont have a link as another posted it. Could be “wishful” thinking. The WAC would be dead after a couple of years if that happens and the Summit would still be vulnerable if UMKC doesn’t start baseball. The UMKC athletics site had an announcement today, but more with improving school spirit, facilities and scholarships. Tomorrow there will be a staffing announcement. http://www.umkckangaroos.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=211780347&DB_OEM_ID=18300

    FCS Football Polls

    Just rejecting the BS that comes from down south that the MVFC is somehow greater than the SEC.

    FCS Football Polls

    So how is it possible no one from the world strongest Gateway/MVFC Conference won a championships between WKU and NDSU. SIU and Youngstown St won before that, but SIU is down in the Pitts now and YSU is almost there. But the histories of UNI, Ill St, and WIU are about as illustrious as NAU and below that of Idaho St. The historical record will remember only Youngstown St and NDSU. Between those schools, it had no national power schools, except departed for FBS WKU, that will be remembered.

    College Hockey Expansion

    Northern Illinois and six other Illinois area colleges are moving to ACHA DI. NIU could be a possible NCAA DI school with that USHL arena in the county closer to Chicago. NIU has sucked forever in mbb, so they need something. https://northernstar.info/sports/ice-hockey-awarded-division-i-status/article_de78e05c-e69f-11e8-a0c5-c3a395cb4f4a.html

    FCS Football Polls

    Guess that’s like the Gateway Conference always losing steam in the playoffs, especially after WKU went FBS. A few new schools came in and it kind of changed things. History is never an unending repeat.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    The MAC, CUSA, Sun Belt and ESPN announce the Myrtle Beach Bowl starting in 2020. https://getsomemaction.com/news/2018/11/13/football-mac-announces-creation-of-myrtle-beach-bowl-in-2020.aspx

    2018-19 Season

    Interesting that Cal Baptist attracted more than 5000 fans to their first game in DI. The arena shames UC-Riverside and other local colleges. Could be they will be another GCU in fan fervency. Heard that GCU actually pays some students to get wild at games and the rest emulate them. https://cbulancers.com/boxscore.aspx?id=8424&path=mbball Cal Baptist faces ORU as part of the Summit-WAC challenge next.

    Does the Big Ten regret adding Maryland and Rutgers after all their troubles? https://www.si.com/college-football/2018/11/05/big-ten-expansion-rutgers-maryland-jim-delany The article never went into the accounting to see if their States and NYC and DC cable networks made it worthwhile.
