Is there any final word on who applied to NCAA Division II this year? (Oh and look for Columbia College (MO) to possibly apply in the near future...)
To what conf? GLVC has 16, MIAA has all fb playing schools and 14 members. Is Bellarmine moving up, creating a hole in the GLVC for Columbia(Mo)?
I was just throwing that out there as a possiblity...Columbia just added 5 more sports (M & W Golf, W Soccer, and M & W X Country) to their current roster (M & W Basketball, M Soccer, W Volleyball and Softball). Considering the current apparent instability of the American Midwest Conference (there were talks of a merger between them and the Trans-South Conference (I am talking about the league Lyon College in AR is a member of) and of the NAIA in general, and knowing how aggressive the school has been in recent years at building and adding on the main campus here in CoMO, it IS a possibility. There was a recent article in the Columbia Daily Tribune about the possibility of moving to D-II but it has been shot down (for now). Is there a spot for them RIGHT NOW, no, but with old rival McKendree and several other old NAIA schools loaded in the GLVC, I see it as a distict possibility in the very near future.
