Murray St is a solid basketball program and fits the geography for most of the members. Replacing a public with a public is also a good idea politically.

Western Illinois would make the most sense as a football replacement as the two could essentially swap places in football. For basketball wiu has gradually become a summit outlier while they would fit in nicely as an ovc western school

Murray State? LOL. Have you watched these guys play before? They are an awfully small team.

Nothing like the Valley teams. They've been playing in the OVC for a reason.

I said this in the other thread, but it's possible OVC won't just be losing one school this or next summer.

I'd toss out UCA's candidacy, but that's a program dependent on the gulf states. Fish out of water in the OVC. The football hit says Kennesaw or G-W as a replacement, but UNCA or High Point might also get a look.

I think the OVC's leading candidates are:

WIU (UMKC takes their spot in the Summit)
Kennesaw St
NKU (IUPUI takes their spot in the Horizon, UMKC fills the Jaguars' slot in Summit)
UNA
Lipscomb

(If they take an A-Sun school the A-Sun will have to look to D2 to fill the void)

I dont see WIU being attracted to the OVC when they are conferencing with the Dakota schools.

UMKC is an ex-Summit school who bumped up to the WAC a quasi big time basketball leauge.

NKU might seriously consider the OVC for travel puroposes.

UNA Im sure would die for an OVC invite.

UMKC sucks and can barely draw flies. They don't "bring" the KC market, not sure why they would be wanted by anyone.

WIU is not a candidate for the OVC. That is laughable.

If anything, EIU is a candidate for the Summit.


OVC football will drop to 8 when Murray leaves ... do they really need to add another football school?
