SiouxVolley Posted February 23, 2014 Author Share Posted February 23, 2014 Was it the MVC or MVFC that was trying to join with the WAC? Yes, please show us some proof of that, cause it sounds pretty far fetched. Where to start? Most of the MVFC can't afford FBS football The MVC wouldn't ok addl members for non football Patty is not the MVC commissioner The MVFC wouldn't be allowed to merge 10 to FBS without the NCAA and the P5 getting involved. There is a lot wrong with you theory, and I haven't see. Any proof. Is a commissioners word good enough or are they lying too? Jeff Hurd of the WAC said a midwest FCS conference offered to merge with the WAC and become an FBS conference. Denver and NMSU would have been added for sure but Idaho and later Seattle would have been tossed aside. Around the same time, UNI, Ill St, Ind St, and even Mo St were making noise about FBS. Since midwest and fcs narrow down to the MVC and MVFC, there's not much question who is was referring to. Maybe with NDSU, Youngstown St, and W Kentucky back they could have pieced together an FBS league. Probably the MVC would not have accepted SDSU, USD, and WIU because they could not have afforded it and didn't have stadiums ready. Maybe Oral Roberts was afraid football would tear apart the Slummit, so they got out while the going was good and now the coast is clear they came back. Email Jeff Hurd if you don't believe it. firstname.lastname@example.org Don't be a bison hind end to him, as you typically are. He's from Minot originally and he answers email.
