    Re: Will Western Illinois Drop Football?

    No, not happening. However, the Dakota's need to help get a new SL member close to us so these types of conversations can ease up...

    Re: Summit Expansion?

    D2 schools have no place in the MVFC. The reason I push for Lindenwood aside from it being in STL a nice metropolitan area, great facilities, already D1 wrestling/women's hockey, and being 3 hours...

    Re: Summit Expansion?

    Agreed. UMKC must add baseball. What else did the Royals build the MLB youth baseball site if not for more opportunities on the diamond in KC. Plenty of local talent. Add a Roos locker room and call...

    Re: MVFC Expansion

    The MVFC will enjoy the new facility Western has in the works. We carry our weight in football with a bad facility now so whatever that says for our approach.

    Macomb is a classic college town so...

    Re: Summit Expansion?

    Easedropping. Western needs a few neighbors in the conference too.

    Add UMKC (easy drive), UNC, & Lindenwood (easy drive) in that order. Help us with travel by adding schools that fit our profile....

    Re: Summit Expansion?

    Would the Dakota schools and NDSU in particular prefer Western left the conference? I won't be offended or argue, I just want to see what the thoughts are.

    Re: Summit Expansion?

    There is no way Western is leaving for the OVC. We are an original, the SL/MVFC is in a fantastic place after years of difficult expansion. Plus we see a regional school in the STL area that is move...

    Re: Western Illinois

    How is the baseball program doing at NDSU? Anyone have the pulse of it aside from just what I see in the rankings? I like Newman a lot.

    New coach at WIU needs some time before much can be...
  11. Re: PantherU: Sources Confirm Oakland to Horizon League

    Yes, there is a legit chance for the HL. Between hoops and having a stable home for football already the XDSU connection is popular there. Travel partners are a must in the HL or I feel WIU would...
  12. Re: PantherU: Sources Confirm Oakland to Horizon League

    First, I threw up a little in my mouth as I decided upon this.

    Chicago St. needs an invitation. WIU needs games in Chicago/IL, SL needs a baseball team, WIU needs a travel partner if Oakland is...

    Having visited their campus and seeing facilities etc they are prepared as of now IMO if they invest on a few projects. It would take them less to compete for SL championships at this point than WIU....

    Maybe Lindenwood moves towards the Pioneer League? I know the PL just bumped up to 12 teams, I am not sure how expansion would work for them but it is a good idea. LU is like many of those schools...

    I would be fine with Minnesota State Mankato joining the SL. Lindenwood and Minn St. would make nice additions for the sanity of all. On a side note having Minn St., Omaha, DU, could...

    Re: Missouri Valley to look at NDSU???

    This article shows that XDSU's will be ok IMO. HL would snag you up long before UIPUI or IPFW, WIU as well. I bet Oakland and XDSU's get the call. YSU may leave which could open another spot.

    Congratulations on the win. It was tough without TP and seeing Clark go down in such pain. They will graduate but what was built should help Western maintain a competitive and relevant Summit League...
  19. Re: GDT: Semifinals Match-up vs Western Illinois

    Good game so far, I wish TP was healthy but that is part of the game.

    Fun to see it grind, that is how WIU can win this one. Tough to out talent anyone in the tourney without Parks. Mo can coach...

    At this point Belmont seems to be the clear favorite and is already hearing from boosters that $ won't be an issue holding them back. Geography is crusing the Dakotas in this realignment.

    Re: Missouri Valley to look at NDSU???

    I feel NDSU is going to jump into the FBS at some point so being a selfish guy I am cheering for a SL break in football to offer Western a more stable home in the future. I don't think the SL will...

    Re: Missouri Valley to look at NDSU???

    The hypothetical is very real... Honestly NDSU waited too long to make the jump to D1 and if the MVFC goes beyond this year as is they will have waited too long again. This time in regards to the SL...

    Re: Missouri Valley to look at NDSU???

    I feel that a move from the SL to the MVC is an upgrade for anyone even without CU or even without CU & WSU.

    WIU doesn't want to leave their football rivalries in the MVCF for the OVC, WIU would...
