So what you're saying is that once UND joins, just need to get YSU to support the idea?

Who butters YSU's bread? I'd guess the MVC teams moreso than the Summit. :(

The wheels for the move to the Summit/MVFC were in motion long before Kennedy ever stepped foot on campus. He gave the final push/blessing but it had been a work in progress long before that. For whatever reason, there is apparently faith in Douple.

At some point, other than the pride of the MVC teams, I'm not sure why the Summit just doesn't take over the MVFC management. 

Never ever said Kennedy was solely responsible for moving to the Summit.  The wheels have been turning ever since Roeback gave an exit interview when he said UND will be in a WAC-like league (FBS) by 2020.  Kennedy greased the wheels for that to happen (which I didn’t understand at the time) and dropped WIH and M&W swimming.   Schafer actually did more in his short term by dropping baseball (which makes the Summit in the short term untenable) and men’s golf with conditions.  Schafer also IMHO called out NDSU’s shenanigans about blocking our membership in the MVFC, which now doesn’t seem to have any complaints about going above 10 members.  Fargo media insisted that the MVFC was dead set against going beyond 10 for years because that is story the NDSU brass spread.

IMHO, the Montanas wanted more research and schools with endowments like them to go FBS eventually.  They rescued us from having to almost destroy football by having to placing it in the Southland, which was NDSU’s Chapman and Taylor’s plan all along.

Nobody is a true “friend” of YSU except OSU backers because of Tressel, because University Presidents don’t want to associate with them as their low admission scores are probably worse than Vo Techs.  YSU has been knocking on the door of the MAC for years, but six Ohio schools are already in that.  YSU used to be a Summit member and they got an invite which they took immediately.

Since I was mentioned, Goon as a writer is one of the boringest bloggers ever that won’t ever inject his personal thoughts into a sports commentary unless it’s about keeping things the same, like losing and tieing Bemidji St.

That’s needed for reporting news, not giving sports commentary.  It’s like getting black and white only as a sports color commentator.

Ya, Goon!  You’re so boring you won’t even make anything up to pass off as fact.  I mean, come on.
