    Default St. Thomas to DI-approved

    St. Thomas was approved for DI today. They will play in the Pioneer for football, WCHA for Women's hockey and Summit for all others. I've got to think this will be a potential non-conference opponent.

    Reusse weighs in. Sounds like they are fully committed to the Pioneer, even though the travel is absolutely brutal. Probably the only way they can do it with both MIH and WIH, even though they are relatively rich. Regarding the latter:

    Fortunately it's only one sport and at most 4 conference road games per year. Drake and Valpo are potential bus rides so if one of those is a road game each year that helps. They'll spend more in travel for the other sports in the Summit.

    Well, NDSU left D2 when they cut scholarships, went to a stupid regional playoff system, and schools like Mary College (now UMary), Minot, Crookston, Bemidji, etc all started joining or were talking about joining.

    St. Thomas has baseball so they actually bring something to the conference.
