    Just checked them out. Heard of Morningside. The rest of them....no. Wonder what the reasoning is behind this.

    They do and have played some of the schools before. Not sure the overall reason other than all be faith based type school.

    Unless the rest of the GPAC is planning on transitioning to the NCAA, this makes zero sense.

    My first pick would be to go DIII to the MIAC, but the GPAC is an improvement over the North Star....all of the GPAC would be considered peer institutions to UJ.

    Makes no sense at all. Travel time will be ridiculous. Shortest conference game would be 240 miles and the longest like 530 or so. Good luck recruiting. Have not heard one person be it a coach or otherwise who is in favor of this.
