the summit should invite university of north dakota as a baseball affiliate as they park their baseball in the great west, while the big sky doesnt sponsor baseball.
Not a bad idea. I think Northern Colorado plays baseball too. They could also be an affiliate. Heck, maybe the Big Sky would be willing to "lend" the Summit UND and UNC for everything but football--it would mean more basketball money for the Big Sky schools and also a better season at making NCAA post-seasons in sports across the board.
North Dakota and Northern Colorado along with Sac State are baseball affiliates in the WAC starting 2014.
2014 WAC Baseball - Seattle, Utah Valley, CSUB, GCU, NMSU, UTPA, Chicago St
Affiliates - Sac State, Northern Colorado, North Dakota
2014 Summit Baseball - NDSU, SDSU, UNOmaha, Western Illinois, IUPUFW and (need at least 1 more)
It makes sense for Chicago St, North Dakota, and UMKC to be in the Summit but that's way too logical...
Far too many factors/egos involved (UND getting shunned/ChiSt getting booted/UMKC leaving) for this to happen, seems obvious to us, but then again don't a lot of things...
