The reason why they don't move to the GAC is....
1. The GAC is made up of smaller schools...than the MIAA.
2. The MIAA is more competitive than the GAC.
3. These two schools would probably dominate the GAC, which wouldn't be good for the GAC schools.
4. The GAC has equal sides with 6 in OK and 6 in Ark. Why mess that up?
5. The MIAA base is in Missouri and Kansas...so, I'll bet that the MIAA likes having its toe in Oklahoma(and Nebraska).
6. IF, either of these two schools wanted to be in the GAC...they would have joined that league instead of joining the MIAA in 2012.
7. Schools in the MIAA have the potential to move up to the next level. The GAC has no potential call-ups.

To me...it's like big brother vs little brother. And why would a school choose to drop down a level?


Then how about any of the current 12 GAC schools be called into the MIAA? Would it be better?

Arkansas Tech and Harding appear to be worthy of some consideration. Though, I don't know how competitive they are in every sport....and I haven't seen any of their facilities.

There is a football spot open in the Southland. So, if an MIAA school gets called up...then maybe either of those two could be in the running for a move up. They would compete with plenty of other schools for that spot, I would imagine.

Always wondering how conference realignment would leave us today had Georgia Tech and Tulane never left the SEC back in the 1960's (also assuming the SEC wouldn't have voted either out by now - more so referring to Tulane.) I have reasons/explanations for each school (all 129 including Charlotte), but I did have to make a few stretch decisions and logical leaps which may not be that logical after all. If you would like to know my explanations for any choice I made, I'd be more than glad to share them. Schools listed per conference alphabetically.

PAC-12: Arizona, Arizona St, California, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon St, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington, Washington St
XII: Arkansas, Iowa St, Kansas, Kansas St, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech
B1G: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan St, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio St, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Wisconsin
SEC: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida St, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi St, South Carolina, Tennessee, Tulane, Vanderbilt
ACC: Boston College, Cincinnati, Clemson, Duke, Louisville, Miami FL, North Carolina, North Carolina St, Penn St, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia
AAC: Baylor, Connecticut, East Carolina, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Navy, TCU, Temple, Tulsa, UCF, USF
MWC: Air Force, Boise St, Colorado St, Fresno St, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego St, San Jose St, UNLV, Utah St, Wyoming
CUSA: Charlotte, FAU, FIU, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Rice, SMU, Southern Miss, UAB, UL Lafayette, UTEP, UTSA, Western Kentucky
MAC: Akron, Ball St, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent St, Miami OH, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Toledo, Western Michigan
SBC: Appalachian St, Arkansas St, Georgia Southern, Georgia St, Idaho, Massachusetts, New Mexico St, North Texas, South Alabama, Texas St, Troy, UL Monroe

I was thinking about expansion. I was thinking what if the big 5 expanded to 14 teams. Here is what i think would happen.

Pac 12 adds
Fresno state(from MWC)
San Diego State(from MWC)

The addition is simple. It adds a additional trip to California for recruiting. Though it doesn't add much tv views(if any)

Big 12
Adds Tulsa from the AAC
Adds Cincinnati from AAC
Adds ECU from AAC
Adds Charlotte From C-usa

adds Tulsa to the southern division to make it a Texas Oklahoma division. Added Cincy as a travel partner for West Virginia(not great but gets big 12 into ohio) ECU and Charlotte to get them into North Carolina.

MWC conferance
Losses Hawaii football(disbands football due to budget)
Adds New Mexico state as All sports member from Sun belt/WAC
Adds BYU back from independent/WCC
Adds North Texas from C-USA

After losing Fresno state and San Diego state to the PAC 12 Hawai folds it's football program.(closest football game would be San Jose) Added New Mexico state and BYU as travel partners for existing schools in conference. Added North Texas to fill the eastern split of schools. The only school out west that could be asked(if they want back into San Diego) Is the university of San Diego.
MWC stays at 12
West Division
San Jose State University
New Mexico
New Mexico state
Boise State
UNLV
Nevada

East Division
Utah state
BYU
Air Force
Colorado State
North Texas
Wyoming

AAC.
Adds UMASS from independents and A-10
adds Middle Tennessee state from C-USA
adds Rice from C-USA

goes to 12

C-USA
(down 4 schools currently)
Adds Texas State from Sun Belt
Adds Troy from Sun belt
at 12 now

Sun Belt
(down 2 all sports and 1 football only)
Idaho drops to FCS or disbands football
Adds Liberty from Big South conference
adds Lamar from southland
Adds Houston baptist from Southland
Adds Sam Houston State from southland
Add East Tennessee State from So con
West:
Lamar
Houston Baptist
Sam Houston State
Louisiana at Monroe
Louisiana at Lafayette
South Alabama

East:
Liberty
Arkansas State
Georgia State
Georgia Southern
Appalachian State
East Tennessee State
