Can we nominate this post for worst post of the year? Not only was it originally posted in the wrong forum but it's basis comes from NIUFan84 who just made up a dream conference that his beloved Huskies would be in. This proposed conference benefits no schools besides NIU and Bowling Green. Hey NIU fan, here's a prediction for you: your Huskies will never be in a legitimate conference.
Marshall University will never have legitimate academics.
NIU is already in a legitimate conference-The MAC. 10 years ago the MAC was strictly an Ohio-Michigan Mid-Major conference, but no more with the additions of NIU, Marshall, UCF, and Buffalo. Add to the fact that Kent, Akron, and EMU are going to be forced out; you will have a solid league of 10 schools in 6 states (2 MI, 1 IL, 1 IN, 4 OH, 1 WV, 1 NY) for a nice upper Mid-West distribution. UCF will be part of a southern league, no big loss though.
Temple? Where is your stadium deal? Will you have a team after 2004? All of this is a big question for you.
