Not sure this is really much more than a regularly scheduled board meeting for Murray State.

That house does appear to be surrounded by a campus lot, a large dorm, and new construction.

The announcement does say "Special Board of Regents Meeting", with special being the key word. Also, wouldn't the media have more than one day notice for a standing BOR meeting?

The second page shows the fourth agenda item is simply "Intercollegiate athletics" with an asterisk indicating that board of regents action is required.

Plus this memo is being sent to the press to alert them.


Sure, it might not be, but I would not be surprised if MSU announces it is joining the MVC.

Would be cool is Valdosta State finally got their act together and moved up. Would create an FCS school in true South Georgia, as well as North Georgia (Kennesaw) and FBS schools in East Georgia (Georgia Southern) along with GT, UGA, and GaState.

RE: Murray St to MVC?
The real question is what will happen to MSU football.

As Stu pointed out in the other thread, it's probably impossible for OVC and MVFC schedules to be changed for the 2017 season. Perhaps then, MSU will either stay in the OVC as a full member for the whole 2017-18 season, or something will be negotiated for an early exit with MSU football staying in the OVC as an affiliate for the 2017 season.


But does MSU get a spot in the MVFC??

I content this should not be an automatic yes. Missouri St, Indiana St, and Youngstown St are already long enough hauls for the Dakota teams. Why do they want to go to Kentucky, now??


Another option would be the Pioneer Leauge, joining fellow/former OVC member Morehead St. It would reduce the football budget, as well, which always looks good to the CFO.

I would think if the eastern members were willing to accept UND to help out the Summit League, the Dakotas would be real asswipes if they tried to reject Murray. For all we know, it was a two-fer admittance

If Murray State is joining the MVC they are coming to the MVFC.

More than likely, you guys are correct.


Still ... wonder if MSU admin would look at the Pioneer League as a way to focus more on basketball and reduce the cost of football.

FCS football is a money pit. It doesn't work financially, for every team in the sub-division save a handful.

Another option is that Murray State could be an affiliate to the Big South Conference in football. But, I do not think they are fit for the MVC since they are way outside of the footprint.

RE: Murray St to MVC?
Another thing I wonder ... would MVFC split into "scheduling divisions" for the sake of reducing travel?

Dakota 4 + UNI + WIU
The rest

You play the five in your division every year, then rotate three and three in the other division over four years.


UNI would scream bloody murder, and kick and cry. Might have to put Missouri St in the Dakota division instead.

Yeah, but what if Missouri State gets an offer to join the Sun Belt Conference again? Would they make the jump to FBS since Wichita State is gone and that the MVC as a whole is a very weak unstable conference? You do have many wandering eyes looking to get off the sinking ship that was known as the MVC.
