The MWC sponsoring men's soccer would cause more shake-ups in the west. The Pac-12 right now has just six members with SDSU as an affiliate. If they leave the Pac is down to five members and I doubt they would want Incarnate Word or Houston Baptist.

I'm sure they convince schools to start a program if they make it worth their while.

The Pac-12 will target Sac State as a replacement, even pay them a bonus.

I think the MWC will bring HBU with them. My hunch is IUW winds up in the Summit, but they might stay in the WAC as their contract is one year different than the other 4 affiliates, or go to the MWC. There will be takers.

Of note: contracts for SJSU, Air Force, UNLV and HBU cycle every two years. 2017-18 (2017 season) and 2018-19 (2018 season) are the next two, and the contracts probably were extended back in March. So 2019-2020 (2019 season) is the first one they would likely exit. UIW contract completes after this coming fall 2017-18, so they can be can be cut loose first.

Missouri Valley wins by adding Valpo, but should resist expanding to 12 teams

Quote:Valpo to the Valley is a victory for school and league alike.

The university presidents in the Missouri Valley Conference have done right by their league in salvaging the MVC's stature as best as possible in the wake of losing their most important member, Wichita State. The MVC, in essentially a month's time, narrowed its search and identified the best and most realistic replacement .

The Valley has endured the most detrimental departures in the past half-decade of any non-power conference. It's lost its two most important programs -- Creighton's understandable lure to the Big East in 2013 was the first big hit. This time around, pegging Valpo provides a more prominent replacement than Loyola-Chicago getting the nod after losing Creighton (no offense to Loyola, but this is indisputably true). This was a critical move for the long-term viability of the Missouri Valley as a potential/occasional two-bid league in the years to come.

Here's the reality: The Valley has been malleable for much of its existence. The league has been around for 110 years and in that time had 34 different members, a surprising figure for sure. (Only the Southern Conference has gone through more turnover.) For all of its charm and sporadic March success, the Missouri Valley's persisting legacy should be its adaptability. Valparaiso makes for a nice marriage, a beneficial union for both league and school, and ushers in a tweaked, if not slightly (and undeniably) downgraded era for the MVC.

"I think we've made a decision that is the best for the Missouri Valley right now in terms of keeping us relevant and competitive and the strength of our league," league commissioner Doug Elgin told me.

Fittingly, Valparaiso has proven to be as flexible over the decades as its new host conference. The school went to Division I in men's basketball in the late 1970s, and since then has managed consistency through four stages: independence, then to the Mid-Continent (which would become the Summit League), followed by the Horizon League and now the MVC.

RE: Big West rejects UC San Diego
Much ado about nothing. There are no plans to start MWC Men's soccer. The WAC is not kicking anyone out of the conference in any sport. The speculation is entertaining, but there is nothing to base it on. It is just speculation. The last conference that should consider kicking anyone out is the WAC.

The MVC has already said they will continue to look at expansion over the next year. That could involve a number of schools in a number of conferences. So every mid-major conference has to be aware that they could be next.

The Horizon is down to the minimum of six baseball schools. Since they already have a target on their back, they should consider adding a 10th school that plays baseball. If they added IPFW, that drops the Summit down to five baseball schools and six men's soccer teams. UMKC, because they don't play baseball, does not help either the Summit or Horizon. The Summit adding New York Tech? LOL!

Good luck. USC can easily afford to, they just don't want to. Same for Oregon and likely Arizona.

They wouldn't go after SAC St for soccer, WSU has mens club soccer they would more than likely just bump that up to a varsity sports and add a sport for women if they have to.

WSU has budget issues, much like Cal. Those two schools are the least likely to add any sports for the next several years.

An affiliate buys you four years. That is the route I expect the Pac-12 to go.
