Oakland University Athletic Director Tracy Huth:
While the worst possible thing to do would be add teams that make other established members look elsewhere, if the league adds UND and SUU goes to the Big Sky, then you get rid of the worst road trip in the Summit and replace it with one that isn't all that bad. That'd be a win-win.I think it can strengthen our league from the standpoint that, when you talk about the Dakota schools, those are the major state schools for those states. The question in my mind right now is that if we expand and bring in North Dakota, we have an 11-team league. I’m not sure how we handle that within all the team sports particularly with all the traveling and having an uneven number of teams. I’ll be curious to see if we try and continue to expand.
