Good CSUSM will have basketball in 2011, it wouldn't make sense to go D-II without it.

There seem to be 4 NAIA conferences that seem ripe to do some kind of shuffling.
There appear to be enough teams for 3 conferences, and everybody is looking toward each other to see how to orchestrate the moves, so that each school winds up grouped with whom they want to be.

Those 4 conferences are:
Midwest Collegiate (MCC) 7 Iowa, 1 Wisconsin
Dakota Athletic (DAC) 4 North Dakota, 3 South Dakota
Great Plains Athletic (GPAC) 2 South Dakota, 2 Nebraska, 4 Iowa
Midlands Collegiate Athletic (MCAC) 4 Nebraska, 2 Kansas, 1 Missouri, 1 Oklahoma

In addition, I believe National America U. (South Dakota) is an NAIA Independent

It seems like the MCC is somehow the stable one, and the Nebraska teams are all talking about migrating to it.
Frankly I see the GPAC as most vulnerable.

The DAC could start the ball rolling by inviting the 2 GPAC South Dakota members + Independent National American U.
That would get the DAC to 10.
The 4 Iowa GPAC members could petition the MCC to allow them to join, which would take that conference to 12.
Finally the 2 Nebraska GPAC members could move to the MCAC, which would take that conference to 10.

I think those numbers might provide some stability.

Long term, however, the MCAC may lose members / bust apart as Ozarks (Missouri) might explore moving to the Heart of America Conference, and Oklahoma Weslayan might prefer one of the three primarily Texas - Oklahoma conferences (I'm suggesting the reducing travel costs might the motivation for them to do this).
