Now how about intelligent counter points.

Calm down, Fido.

That is a rich retort right there, coming from you.

I have offered my detailed points plenty on the subject. Not going through it again to satisfy a few people. Most readers here don't care for the long-lined back-and-forth once it reaches a certain point. We have reached that point.

beat me by about 30 minutes.

Put me down as a 'yes'. There is SOME history of us with Wichita State in terms of the Missouri Valley Conference. I think WSU saw how well things turned out for Creighton and thought 'this might not be a bad thing'.

A conference with UCONN (I know they were awful this year), UC, SMU, Wichita State and (if we get our act together) us is actually pretty darn good.

probably our best conference since the glory days of the 90's C-USA.

Plus Temple. Tulsa and Houston are right where they need to be performance wise to not be RPI anchors to the conference either. UCF had a good season. Hope they can build on that. USF and Tulane...well

they would join in 2018, not this June

Some reports have it as this year. And if they are coming in 2018, then it's totally useless, because if the WSU next year lives up to its hype, they would be a 2nd/3rd weekend team and that team will lose seven seniors, so that would be a perfect time for Marshall to boom outta there.

So, then in 2018, some slaw version, RPI/KenPom anchor WSU program joins.

SOURCES: Wichita State in serious talks to join AAC. Could be as early as 2017-18 season. https://www.si.com/college-basketball/20...uri-valley

"The biggest lingering detail remains when Wichita State would leave the Missouri Valley Conference to begin play in the AAC. Sources said there’s a strong chance that the Shockers could play in the AAC in the 2017-18 season, as both sides would prefer Wichita State avoiding playing a lame duck year in the Missouri Valley Conference."

"Valley officials are prepared for the move, as one told Sports Illustrated on Thursday night: “We understand that this is in the works and that it’s a strong possibility.”





"The incentive would likely be for the American to move quickly."




"The incentive for the AAC to act now comes down to NCAA units, which are worth nearly $1.6 million for every NCAA game that a team plays in. If Wichita State’s stout team makes a deep run next season, the potential haul of units—which are shared by the conference—would make an expedited timeline look wise. Regular season college basketball moves the needle so little for television that Wichita State’s ultimate value for the AAC would likely resonate more in earning NCAA units than in potential television dollars. (The AAC’s television deal expires in 2020)."

Hell, the MVC teams probably want WSU the hell out of there for the 2017-18 season, as the Shocker will probably be Top 15 preseason and that would give the other schleps in the MVC a chance of making the tourney.

Witcha is the perfect fit for our conference. [1] Their president gets it. I hope the Kochs do as well. I hope they add football.

Quote:Potential changes in athletics are connected to the bigger picture of how WSU can help enrollment and Wichita’s economy.

From the start, Bardo talked about his desire to be associated with large, urban universities with research missions that are similar to WSU. He points to schools such as Cincinnati and Houston. The MVC is populated by four private schools and five other public schools, all of which are located in cities smaller than Wichita.

“This is about the positioning of the university,” he said. “If Wichita is going to be successful as a city as we continue to move into this world that none of us fully have grips on yet, the university has to be at the center of what happens in the city. Which means we have to have a reputation and an ability to deliver that causes the city to be perceived as having value.”
