I'm not really certain as to WHY you are interested in moving these two schools? Especially, when these two schools seem happy where they are. Was there some reason behind you suggesting this move?

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
