Honestly, if UNI & ISUr decided to jump together, that alone make the new Summit better than the MVC.

    You are right it's not going to happen, but it's not because it would be a step down. It would be because of tournament shares. If a Summit team can make a S16 run or two and the MVC is a one and done for a few years, then it has a chance. Those are two HUGE ifs though, so let's cross that bridge if it actually happens.
    Now that Wichita State is gone, I would not worry about MVC making any S16 runs either. It takes a special group of players to get to S16 unless you are the big boys. Tourney money because of WSU will be end. WSU left that money on the table to move out and up for them.

    UNI is a good enough program to make a tournament run. ISUr could probably do it too. The rest, I don't think so.

    It's just a matter of time before Summit units, Horizon units, and Valley units from the tournament are pretty much even.

    UNI had to manage maybe the greatest collapse in March Madness history to not make the Sweet Sixteen in 2016...just sayin'

    UNI doing UNI things proves his point. UNI has 1 sweet sixteen appearance in 35 years.

    MVC isn't going to be getting 10-12 seeds on a regular basis without WSU either which makes tourney wins even harder to come by IMO.

    The Summit League just doesn't get very good seeds very often. I'm looking back at the past 6 years and the Summit League has only gotten as high as a 12 seed twice. In those cases NDSU won against Oklahoma 80-75 (in OT) and SDSU lost to Maryland 79-74.

    The other three times SDSU has had it rough. They had to play Baylor (2012), Michigan (2013), and Gonzaga (2017) and two of those three made it to the Final 4. Baylor on the other hand made it to the Elite 8. Then you have NDSU playing Gonzaga in 2015. It's very hard to win when you play teams like that in the first round of the tournament.

    I highly believe that NDSU and SDSU would be the best adds for the MVC. It also makes sense for you guys as well too. With two quality adds it makes our conference better which means that our seeding will be better. If you can get at least a 12 seed in the tournament you give yourself a chance of winning. Anything less than a 12 and you have to get really lucky and play a highly overrated team to even have a chance at winning.

    In all honesty an 11 or a 12 seed is probably the best seeding you can get as a mid major because if you win you don't get stuck playing a 1 or a 2 seed in the second round if you win, so you have a better chance at making a Sweet 16 run. Being an 8 or a 9; or a 7 and a 10 is probably about the worst thing that can happen, but even at that you still have a chance to win at least 1 game.

    But I don't think I have to convince you guys too much since the vote is 63-11 in favor.

    Still a better seed usually than the Summit.
