I graduated from IPFW and although I would love to see them in the Horizon, they would probably have a difficult time being competitive in that league. I agree they do need a conference to play in, however it would be nice if you had some or any information to back your reasoning. Geographically, it would be awesome, and IPFW usually does beat the Horizon bottom dwellers like Youngstown State in basketball, but I have doubts about IPFW receiving an invitation to join. If the Horizon League were to expand I could see them grabbing a few different Mid-Con teams instead of IPFW, in which case IPFW might then get invited to the Mid-Con Conference.
Indy Fan, I agree with you of what you've just said. Either the Horizon or the Mid-Con, it might be possble for the Mastadons to join one of them. Or they might accept to play in the Mid-American Conference (for all sports).
