Typically the D-II membership committee holds it's annual meeting around the week of July 6th.

The Senior Reports D-II thread has the list of 2014 D-II applicants (I think there are 8, per info provided by the NCAA).

Anyway, expect to hear who gets accepted / rejected in about 2 weeks.

D-2 Membership meeting will be next week - July 7-9, 2014.

The membership committee then notfies the applicants, and they prepare their own press releases (sort of a weird procedure).
If it's like the last few years, these press releases will come out Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Anyone who doesn't issue a press release by the end of the week probably got rejected....

And word has come from on high (NCAA D-II membership committee):

5 of the 8 applicant schools has been accepted into D-II.

Concordia (Oregon) -> D-II GNAC
Concordia (Irvine, CA) -> D-II PacWest
Oklahoma Baptist -> GAC (fills that conf. out at 6 OK schools and 6 AR schools)
CSU-San Marcos -> D-II CCAA (finally accepted on 4th or 5th try...)
Embry-Riddle Aeronautic (FL) -> D-II SSC

REJECTED:
Cumberland (TN) and Georgetown (JY) - both have been invited to the D-II G-MAC
Westminster (UT) - invited to re-join D-II RMAC (they dorpped sports many years ago, I think their application was submitted late or right at the deadline).


The Senior Reports has the memo from the NCAA, which details the other advancements through the 3 year D-II transition process.

Do they have it out for G-MAC or something? Georgetown (KY) was rejected last year too right?

Need to reject a few to have applicants for next year.

I think the membership committee meeting each July is a valued boon-doggle.

The G-MAC is a Johnny-come-lately, so let's shaft them.

Georgetown, Cumberland, Westminster get their application fees refunded.
Look for all 3 to re-apply and get approved next year.

CSU-SM finally got in after several years of rejections.

The Senior Reporst has a story this morning about how G-MAC conference office is pushing Georgetown and Cumberland to seek clarification as to why they were rejected,
and potentially appealing their rejection.

These two conferences acted in a professional manner to better the situation for all involved.

BRAVO !

One conference had 9 schools, one had 11, so UTPB slid over to equlize the numbers.

Where one or both conferences lacked critical mass in a given sport, the two conferences are now effectively "pooling" their schools
to create merged leagues that can qualify for automatic bids and solve AD's scheduling issues by growing to critical mass.

NAIA Frontier and Cascade recently agreed to do the same for several sports.
It's refreshing to see, after a lot of "destructive re-alignment".

The G-MAC raids the GLIAC and takes five more schools in 2017-18.
Hillsdale College
Lake Erie College
Ohio Dominican University
University of Findlay
Walsh University.
http://g-macsports.com/news/2015/6/29/G ... 51438.aspx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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:

Lake Erie
Notre Dame (MEC)
Ursuline (women's only)
Walsh
Malone
Tiffin
Findlay
Ashland
MVNU (NAIA no football)
Ohio Dominican
Urbana (MEC)
Cedarville (no football)
Central St

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
