Rogers State has been extolling a hugely important campus announcemnet at 3 pm (as noted by Freaked).
It's hard to imagine that would relate to a failed application.
ergo -

Rogers State - APPROVED


Point Loma Nazarene has been approved to move into Year 2 of it's D-2 transition.

Georgetown has tweeted that they were rejected.
Senior report indicates that "reliable sources" have Lee approved.

So of the 10 applicants so far we have:

Daemen _ APPROVED
Oklahoma Christian - APPROVED
Virginia-Wise - APPROVED
Rogers State - APPROVED
Lubbock Christian - APPROVED
Holy Names - APPROVED
Lee - APPROVED (we think)

Georgetown - REJECTED

NW OKlahoma State - withholding release of information until next week
(they made this decision yesterday, presumably before receiving word,
you'd think if they were rejected, they could issue a brief statement TODAY).

CSU- San Marcos - No word yet.

NCAA had a "soft limit" of 7-8 approvals, but stipulated they could go to 10 or so, if there were enough qualified applicants.


Azusa Pacific and Southern Nazarene have both been APPROVED to advance to Year 2 of D-2 transition.

Malone and Walsh both APPROVED to advance in D-2 transition - Presumably to Provisional Year....

Anyone find anything more definitive on Lee (rumored approval) or CSU-San Marcos (no news yet) ?

Mizzoufan -

My wife was at Mizzou during the Woody's Wagon years, when OU and Nebraska would routinely beat the tar out of Missouri in football.
I don't think there is much love lost for those "rivalries". Maybe Kansas, though.... that dates back to the Big 8 (100 years in football).

We both think Missouri might be best suited to be in the Big Ten. They seemed to have abudding rivalry with Illinois.

Certainly being in a stable SEC beats the hell out of being in a Big XII where half the teams care nothing about leaving he other half high and dry.
SEC will be (as they say) a challenge and an opportuinty.
It should help recruiting, and if Mizzou plays their cards right, they could end up elevating their national profile.
On the other hand, the competition level (especially in football, swimming, and a few other sports) is intense.


Keeping this somewhat on topic...The changes in the NAIA recently have been rather alaming. NCAA D-II is still the smallest division of all the "College Associations", but if the NAIA keeps losing schools at the rate it is, it will be dead in less than 30 years.

As for the Big 10 thing, the majority of Mizzou folks that I know basically said to hell with that league after being "turned down" for the "third" time (After the 60's when Devine was the AD, in the early 90's when the Big 8 was turning into the Big 12, and after NU being taken instead of us). Most people here realize the challenge coming on, but also realize that this may be the best overall fit after this most recent round of reshuffling.

Devaney is so pre-occupied with somehow reeling in Notre Dame, I think the B1G has mised out on some good options.

NAIA keeps shrinking. It's still viable in mid-west and plains, but all the NE schools have now left.
There is no more NAIA east of Pittsburgh / WV, north of Virginia.
Right now 3 conferences in NAIA have shrunk to where they need to fold or consolidate.
The limit D-2 has placed on annual approvals is the one thing delaying the inevitable.

Senior Reports has NW Oklahoma St. has in(per sources) and CSUSM as out(per sources). your standard 8 in. 2 rejected. I'm surprised G'town was rejected, they were approved for D-III provisional last year.

Love it !

I was born in Greensburg, about a mile from Seton Hill, and was visiting my dad last weekend (he lives in the Johnstown / Davidsville / Richland Township area a mile or two from UP-J).

Seton Hill and UP-J were the 2 PA teams in the WVIAC, which announced a split a few weeks ago.
This would be marvelous for both schools in terms of travel.
The one caveat is the PSIAC would then be at a whopping 18 schools, so that would place even more emphasis on the divisional alignment
(not necessarily a bad thing, sicne it might help most everyone with travel).

The baseball stadium in Johnstown is very nice for smaller crowds. Point Park is down near the confluence of the Little Conemaugh and Stony Creek into the Conemaugh River
(featured prominently in the Johnstown Flood Story). Until a few years ago, they hosted a minor league team in the independent Frontier League (somewhere between A and AA ball),
and annually they host the AAABA National Champioinship. (I think the AAABA might be something like American Legion Ball). I think it'd be ideal for a PSIAC tournament.

The WVIAC could perhaps move their tourney to the Frontier Legue Park in Washington, PA which is in the very SW corner of the state, almost jutting into West Virginia.

Seton Hill was supposed to join the New WVIAC. Why does the PSAC want 18? Plus they'd have 17 for fb. Mansfield and UPJ don't have fb and CW Post is the fb only that replaced Mansfield.

NCAA close to adding 1st foreign schoo
NDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA is close to adding its first international member, with a single step remaining before Simon Fraser joins the ranks of Division II.

The Division II Membership Committee has conditionally approved Simon Fraser, located in Burnaby, British Columbia, as a Division II active member. The NCAA's executive committee is expected to consider the move Aug. 1.

The NCAA requires all schools to be accredited by a U.S. agency. Simon Fraser has been accepted into candidacy by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, but the process will not be complete until 2017 at the earliest.

The Division II committee also took a preliminary step to consider membership applications from Mexican institutions.

I find it interesting that 2 Mexican School (the University of Nuevo Leon and Monterrey Tech) are also interested in Divison II membership. Wonder if the NCAA would want to expand south too.
