MVC to hold emergency meeting on Sunday in Saint Louis (Rothstein)
The Missouri Valley Conference is expected to hold an emergency meeting on Sunday in Saint Louis with its respective athletic directors and presidents to likely discuss a plan for Wichita State’s expected exit to the American Athletic Conference, multiple sources told FanRag Sports.
FanRag Sports reported earlier on Tuesday that members of the American Athletic Conference were preparing for the Shockers to join the league next season as a basketball only member.

Basketball only? Why would that be the case and not all sports?

Basketball only means all sports but football.

Yes. It personally annoys me because it's an inaccurate term on its face, but that's what people generally mean to be a "basketball-only" school.

Yup. Its like people asking for a "Coke" when they really are asking for a soft drink.

It's more like saying "steak only" when someone really means a dinner with an appetizer, a salad, a steak, spinach, mashed potatoes, a glass of wine, and a dessert with a cup of coffee. 07-coffee3

I think that's a Southern thing – I know I have only experienced that in the south. That all soft drinks are Cokes in the same way that all facial tissues are Kleenex.

Where I'm from, people would ask for a "pop" and then specify their soft drink of choice.

As for the "basketball only" thing, I think that's a reflection on the way the general public looks at college athletics – as football and men's basketball and that's it. At some schools, women's basketball matters as well but frankly, that is rare.

I think a much better term would be "non-football playing member."

As for this meeting, I think it is pretty clear where this is headed. Wichita State is definitely leaving. That's no surprise and it's probably a good move for the Wheat Shockers and for the American.

It will be interesting to see who the Missouri Valley replaces them with? One of my best friends from college coaches in that league. I'll send him a text and see what he's hearing?
