For those keeping count, the G-MAC will have 8 schools in 2015-16, 9 schools in 2016-17 with the addition of Malone College (also from the GLIAC), and 14 schools
in 2017-18. The G-MAC will also have enough football playing members (8) to sponsor the sport.
The GLIAC will have 16 schools in 2015-16, 15 in 2016-17, and drops like a rock to 10 schools in 2017-18.
Of course, this is assuming there aren't any more schools moving to or from these conferences in the next two years.
The smaller Ohio schools never really were in a position to compete with the larger state schools in Michigan. I wonder why Tiffin and Ashland chose to stay--the G-Mac presents more opportunities to win. I still wish the D-II schools in Ohio would have been able to work together to form an All Ohio Conference:
That's 13 for women's sports, 12 for men's, and 10 for football. It would have been perfect. They even make for almost perfect travel partners
