UT-Dallas is moving from D-III to D-II. (Senior Reports)

I figure the Heartland is either going to 16 or the LSC is going to take more non fb schools to go w/ Camron.

UCA is NOT going to move down - it is only some faculty's wet dream to get rid of sports, because they wrongly feel that would free up money for themselves (like the boosters that paid for the field would just direct that money to a chem prof).



Stop reporting they are moving down - not happening.

We report what is out there, this is no different don't get all mad just because UCA's staff wants them to move down thinking that will help by not having any recognition on espn bottomline or ticket money at the gate from the games, plus, whatever they make from bodybag. By moving back to D-II they'll bring in millions of more dollars in monopoly money to fund their music program and science club, plus everyone knows the debate team is the real cash cow for the school

A source in Fresno tells me that a biology professor wants Fresno State to drop football and join the Big West with the rest of it's academic peers in the Cal State system. Make sure you include that nugget in every Big East/MWC post.


Who is replacing Fresno in the MWC when they drop football?

Mutka: Athletic director Rick Costello relishes PUC’s continuing growth

That may dramatically change in the near-future. Don’t be surprised if Purdue Calumet switches from NAIA status to NCAA Division II.
When that happens the Great Lakes Valley Conference, arguably the best Division II basketball conference in the country, would be an appealing option. Natural rivalries could easily develop with St. Joseph’s, Indianapolis, Quincy, Drury and Lewis.
“It has been mentioned,” said Friend, acknowledging interest in the GLVC. “It makes sense.”
Purdue Calumet currently sponsors 10 sports, but is expanding. Adding baseball and softball will boost the number of student-athletes from 125 to 200 next year.

An alumnus and former Paine College administrator has confirmed to the Augusta Chronicle that the college will tomorrow announce the return of its football program. The Lions last competed in the SIAC in football in 1962.
Roscoe Williams, a Paine alumnus and former assistant to the president, said the announcement would be about restarting a football team. He said the last year of the program was 1962.
“There’s nothing like having a football program,” Williams said. “My guess is it is to regenerate some school spirit.”

An early November trip to Monterrey reinforced the beliefs of key Lone Star Conference officials that Division II should extend its pilot program for international members to Mexican institutions.

Pat O’Brien, president of West Texas A&M and chair of the Division II Presidents Council, and LSC Commissioner Stan Wagnon visited Monterrey Tech (Tecnológico de Monterrey) and the University of Nuevo Leon (Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León) the week of Nov. 5 and returned believing that potential exists to benefit parties on both sides of the border.

“Both Monterrey Tech and the University of Nuevo Leon could be great additions to Division II,” O’Brien said. “Both institutions are solid academically and have superb academic and athletics facilities, along with significant athletics traditions. The president of each university expressed strong support for becoming members of Division II.”

Mountain East Conference Applies to be NCAA DII Member
Image

The newly formed Mountain East Conference has officially applied for approval to begin competing as the NCAA's newest Division II athletic conference during the 2013-14 academic year.

The MEC's formal application was submitted to the NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis on Friday, with all supporting documentation.

We are very pleased to have presented our credentials to the NCAA seeking to become the 25th Division II conference," Amos said in an official press release. "The MEC will value providing a quality experience for its student athletes in a highly competitive conference. Our institutions are committed to moving forward as a model conference guided by NCAA standards which enable our best programs to rank among the nation's best. With the great athletic histories of our institutions, I am honored to be named the first Commissioner of the Mountain East Conference by our Board of Directors as we move forward into a bright future."

The MEC is awaiting approval for competition in 2013-14. If approved, the league would meet the NCAA guidelines for conference championships in 16 sports: men's and women's basketball, baseball, men's and women's cross country, football, men's and women's golf, men's and women's soccer, softball, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track and field, and volleyball

GNAC is looking at Carroll(MT), Menlo, and S.Dakota Mines(D-II Indy). I'm guessing Menlo and SD Mines for just fb.

Found this on senior reports
