The Chicago St. move from the Summit League (then Mid-Con) to independence, was very questionable. Had there been a more enticing league out there that wanted them, then it would make sense...the Horizon for example. But there was no new home and the Great West is the only option.
The Great West Conference added its seventh all-sports member when Chicago State accepted an invitation, Commissioner Ed Grom said today. The immediate addition of Chicago State gives the Great West seven members competing in all sports, along with the three football-only members.
Southeast Missouri State fired athletic director Don Kaverman and placed men's basketball coach Scott Edgar on administrative leave on Thursday, three days after the NCAA notified the school of possible major violations.Wednesday, October 8, 2008
The moves come three months after the women's basketball team forfeited 44 victories, and the women's and men's programs were placed on two years' probation for major and secondary violations.
"Given the serious nature of the allegations, we believed we needed to take immediate action in the best interests of the program," school president Kenneth W. Dobbins said in a statement.
The school said in a release that Kaverman was placed on administrative leave until Feb. 7, 2009, when his contract will end. Associate athletic director Cindy Gannon was appointed interim AD.

It will be time for musical coaches soon, as any number of college and pro jobs will be open.
The biggest of them all might be Penn State, where Joe Paterno's continuing struggles with leg injuries could lead to the end of an era nearly 60 years long.
Many years ago, Paterno noted that most coaches had to retire when their legs went. He's also said he would get out when he no longer could lead his team out of the tunnel, which he did until this fall.
There are three theories on what will happen when Joe finally surrenders to age.
1. A current assistant, probably Tom Bradley, will be elevated.
2. A member of the "Penn State family," such as former Lions all-America Mike Munchak (now the offensive line coach of the Tennessee Titans), will be named. Former Paterno assistants such as Greg Schiano of Rutgers and Al Golden of Temple also fit in this group.
3. A person with no ties to the program, but a sufficiently "big name" to withstand the pressures of following Paterno, will be named.

He's the mastermind, the unquestioned leader of the school's unprecedented growth in recent years.
So when University of the Incarnate Word president Louis Agnese, awash in pride over his new football team, suggests taking UIW's athletics programs into NCAA Division I by 2012, it's not a surprise.
“We're not that little college at the corner of Broadway and Hildebrand anymore,” he said.
UIW and Division I?
Agnese says it's possible, but only as a last resort if the school fails to gain admittance to the Division II Lone Star Conference.
