RE: OVC expansion
Would EIU join the Missouri Valley as a football only member or as a full member?I think EIU would struggle in that league outside of football.Locally,I've got UT Martin in the OVC & sometimes I think UTM's move to D1 was a mistake.

EIU left the MVC and joined the OVC in 1996. Not sure why they would go back.

RE: OVC expansion
What about West Liberty University? They are in the northern part of WV, have great basketball, and has already built a name for themselves. Every game is packed now for a D2 schedule, I couldn't imagine what they would draw with moving up.

Last 5 seasons in D2.

2010- Sweet 16

2011- Final 4

2012- Elite 8

2013- Final 4

2014- Runner Up

Also pretty sure they won over 30 games every single year. Only one I'm not 100% on is the 2010 season.

West Liberty would be a great addition. Has good facilities, GREAT basketball, and other sports are solid.

Has own tv network and good local support.
