Freaked, see if you can find anything on UNA being offered the 13th spot in the OVC and if they plan on 14. I heard that the OVC is offering UNA a spot, on the D-II board. No proof, just "insiders" talking to coahes/staff saying they are going D-I/OVC

Edit:
FresnoStateAlum,if I come across any UNA or OVC conference realignment news I will post it.June is traditionally a busy month for conference realignment news.

Thanks
Freaked

FresnoStAlum,here is Times Daily article that discusses tomorrow's UNA BOT meetings where "possibility" of UNA's upgrade to NCAA D-1 will be decided.Article twice mentions that UNA's prefered D-1 conference would be the OVC.Stay tuned.

FCS MB thread regarding subject - http://www.anygivensaturday.com/showthr ... te-UNA-NKU

UNA must have some source of money stepping up to help them meet the benchmarks because there have been some questions internally and externally regarding this. It would be foolish for the OVC to make an invite unless they have assurances.

FYI... a realist about one's situation, Jacksonville State does not feel that they will be making the move in the immediate future as they intended. Finances come into play... a lesson for North Alabama, who wants to move to FCS despite their lack of finances to fund the move???

Quote:
“Are we going to get there next year — no,” Meehan continued. “Are we going to get there in five years — perhaps. Are we going to get there in 10 years — I feel certain. But it’s going to take a certain level of expenditure.

“What I have asked and what our board of trustees have told me they want is excellence where we are now and … (when) we’re ready and our facilities are up to par with other conferences at the Football Bowl Subdivision we will receive an invitation and we’ll be ready to go. Right now, nobody’s asking us.”

Policymakers and athletic director candidates have said it would take five years for JSU to raise sufficient enough money to properly fund such a move once they commit to making it.

if they end up in the OVC they just need to find a home for their mens soccer program.
