Bruin, the NCAA contradicting itself by saying a 5 team league counts even though they just passed a rule that says you need 7 full members. I'll believe it when I see an actual invite. It would be great if it was allowed. I think Quinn and the others would be mad if I took the bet now and lost, since the NCAA seems to be talking out of both sides of its mouth(ass). They'd tell me to get a new ID and keep posting
The D-II schools would be Grand Canyon who already said they want to be D-I. So, they'd ask to be a member as soon as the GWC is allowed. (If the NCAA goes through with this).
schools that want to be D-I
UCSD (want to be in the Big West or stay D-II)
N.Alabama(talking w/ OVC)
N.Kentucky(talking w/ OVC)
Abilene Christian(wants SLC)
Angelo St.(put off looking at D-I/SLC)
Lincoln Memorial(A-Sun if they still want to move)
Bellarmine(wants D-I, Summit?)
W.Florida (wanted D-I, A-Sun, I don't know if they still do)
So GCU might be your only option.
Longwood and CSUB have less travel by being Indy and playing basically against local BSC, ASC, SoCon, CAA schools, and same for CSUB w/ BWC, WCC schools. So unless GWC had an AQ I don't see them going. I'm surprised that NJIT is still in the GWC. All it takes for them to be gone is the AEC taking a NEC school to go to 10, then the NEC really only has NJIT to back fill to 12 with. HBU and UTPA might end up in the SLC if they can't land a D-II fb school or 2.
Who are you a fan of that you take so much interest in the GWC?
