3 new schools are lining up for D3 this year so far.
http://d3sports.com/notables/2017/02/thr...to-join-d3

Johnson and Wales in Denver we already know.
SUNY-Delhi going from JUCO to 4 year university
Mississippi University for Women since going to co-ed are adding back sports for this fall.

They may have to add basketball first before they can be granted NCAA status again.

I think both University Texas-Tyler (exploring to add football) and University Texas-Dallas both might be looking to go D2 Lonestar conference.

RE: D-II/D-III/NAIA movement
Okay, I remember the Interim WAC conference commish talking about expansion back in 2012 along with the talks about MVFC could merge to form a WAC FBS conference to save the WAC. He talked about several D2 schools west of the Mississippi River were interested in joining the WAC. We found 2 already with Grand Canyon and California Baptist. He did mentioned some of the D2 schools had football teams. The only schools that I know of who have done some upgrading for their stadiums or to build a new stadium that could move up, or ones that could get tractions to upgrade the stadiums that they are using for the cities they play in. The schools that I can think of that have done some work or spent money are Dixie State, Central Washington, Colorado Mesa, Azusa Pacific, West Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Commerce, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Tarleton State, and some others.

There seems to be rumors that Cal. State-Los Angeles could get an invite to the WAC now since Cal. Baptist got invites. Western Washington is another one that could get an invite. If UTRGV, Chicago State and UMKC leaves? We could see a true Western Conference formed by these schools.

Cal. Baptist
Cal. State-Los Angeles
Cal. State-Bakersfield
Seattle U.
Western Washington
Grand Canyon U.
New Mexico State
Utah Valley
New Mexico State
Azusa Pacific
Central Washington
Dixie State
Colorado Mesa
West Texas A&M

Wac could have an FCS conference going with:
Azusa Pacific
Central Washington
Dixie State
Colorado Mesa
West Texas A&M

You could throw Cal.-Davis and Cal. Poly as affiliates in football to make 7 and have cross rivalry games with the Big Sky schools like the SEC and AAC.

Eastern Washington/Central Washington
Cal-Davis/Sacramento State
Northern Colorado/Colorado Mesa
Weber State/Dixie State
Cal. Poly/Azusa Pacific
Northern Arizona/Grand Canyon (if Grand Canyon adds football)

I could see Western Oregon joins in the future WAC school to create a Portland State/Western Oregon match up between Big Sky and WAC.

Creating in an instate rivalry games between the 2 conference could create more $$$$ for both conferences.

Colorado Mesa is not going D1. There simply is no money.

Dixie State currently does not have enough men's sports to qualify for D1.

Patently unfair that they get to compete with small private colleges. The Northern Sun schools are who they should be competing against.


Lots of things I want will never happen ...

WIAC programs are not the only public U's that play D3 sports. New Jersey's publics are all D3 except Rutgers

I'm not saying you're wrong or that Madison does not actually desire to keep the UW schools down in DIII.

But that reasoning is pure bunk. Minnesota provides the perfect counter-example. All of the MN public schools are DII (except god-awful Morris, which should be a private liberal arts college anyway ...), yet the Gophers have never lost a kid they asked to walk-on to a MN public school, initially. Sure, the kid might transfer out if getting passed up on the depth chart.

The real threats they have to worry about (they being Minnesota, Wisconsin) are the FCS Dakota teams, FCS UNI, and NIU (moreso Wisconsin).
WIU also not far from Madison and FCS. While going to the Big U and walking on may feed an atheltes' ego, playing D2 or FCS with a scholarship and actually getting playing time instead of being a tacking dummy makes alot more sense

Absolutely it does.

And the main point is: it's absolutely false that the DIII UW campuses aren't providing athletic scholarships to Wisconsin high school athletes. Pure bunk.


Force them to DII!!!!

It's nice to see another Ohio school reuniting in the G-MAC. Maybe th G-MAC and Mountain East could arrange an amicable agreement to allow Notre Dame and Urbana to go to the G-MAC in exchange for the three West Virginia schools (get the old WVIAC band back together?). If they need another football school toss in Kentucky Wesleyan.
