At some point, the MVFC, MVC, and Sunmit should just try to merge. If Witchita and Missouri St ever leave, they might as well.

RE: North Dakota to Summit League and MVFC
This makes sense to me.

The Summit won the battle with the WAC. This is bad news for them. UMKC has to be kicking themselves for moving from the Summit to the WAC.

I'd say the Big Sky would backfill with NMSU, but I'm not sure they'll do it, seeing as how they treated Idaho. Although I suspect that ultimatum was really asked for by the UI President to force a move down.

There was no ultimatum they needed an answer for scheduling purposes for the 2018 season. The Big Sky later came out and stated Idaho could join at a later date if they needed to.

Yeah, that ultimatum was basically made up by Staben and he stopped talking about it pretty quickly. The Big Sky commish undercut him when asked by media members. It was pretty transparent to anyone paying attention -- the Big Sky tried very publicly to bring us back for 2 decades and suddenly we're supposed to have a do-or-die ultimatum? Like most of what comes out of Chuck Staben's mouth, it was nonsense.

I know. Poor guy. I also really wanted him to be right. All of his theories would have been very good for my school.

No, this is some 10D-chess-while-everyone-else-is-playing-checkers stuff. It's just another addition to the Goldberg machine that results in an FBS WAC.

MVC and WAC are going to swap will be the next wild scheme.

Actually this is great news for the WAC as it gives the Summit ten members. That means the chances of the Summit taking back UMKC from the WAC just went down to about nil.
