If the MVC wanted IUPUI and IPFW, I think the Summit might be willing to see them go. Or perhaps Western Illinois.
I'd hate to see some move that went after the Dakota schools, UNO, Oral Roberts or Denver, though, as that would mess with the Summit conference's "core".

If and when WSU leaves the MVC, the MVC could tighten up their travel by looking eastward, toward the Horizon / OVC.

I’d assume the MVC’s top candidate would be Valpo.



But I also think it’s time the A10, MVC, WCC get together with a few others from the CAA, MAAC, Horizon; and plot a better future.

So instead of: A-10 || WCC | MVC || CAA | MAAC | HL as we know it; They make a: National All-Star Conference || A-10 || WCC | HL | MAAC | CAA
Instead of competing for six auto bids and 3-4 at-larges; they go for 7 autos and 5 at-larges (all from the New conference)


Well, actually, I think the time to do that was LAST MONTH when Wichita State could have been a part of it…
Gonzaga, BYU, Saint Mary’s, Wichita State, Northern Iowa, Saint Louis
Dayton, VCU, Davidson, St. Bonaventure, Valpo, Richmond, Duquesne


The remaining A-10 teams pick up MVC teams (Ill St, So Ill, Evansville) or CAA/MAAC teams (Wilmington, Monmouth) to go back to 12, 13, 14.
The rest of the WCC adds Seattle, Denver, Grand Canyon to get back to 10.
The left out MVC teams join the Horizon. The CAA/MAAC remnants sort it out.
