Central Washington has 12,000 students and an $18 million dollar endowment.

They profile more as a DII school than DI.

Big Sky and the WAC should save the GNAC football group by given them a home in D1.

Central Washington
Western Oregon
Azusa Pacific
Humboldt State

As for Western Washington? The rumor was they dropped football so that they can save money for them to go D1, and maybe re-add the sport in the future.

Western Washington has similar politics to Evergreen St, meaning both have no chance at starting football, unless there were football teams for males, females and transgender.

The other side of the Cascades yields totally different students, but they have no money. C Washington doesn't have a chance at DI unless a sugar daddy stepped up.

That's what I was thinking. Doesn't that mean they will have 13 football members after North Dakota leaves? And this year they would still be at 13, since Idaho doesn't come in until 2018 and ND doesn't join the MVFC until 2020 (unless I'm reading that wrong). Or will ND be independent until then?

UND will be staying with the Big Sky until 2020. That doesn't make sense unless some bigger realignment is happening and actually planned.

I'm other sure what their attendance is like but they seem to have done fair to me. They played in the NCAA Tournament for example.

The Bears were a football powerhouse in three different D2 conferences, and won two D2 national championships. While the Bears have had back to back 6-5 seasons, they have also had 0 for 11 seasons in the last few years. I'm pleased to hear that they have had some success with basketball.

Wrong. Big Sky requires two years notice for Football, only one for other sports. To avoid exit penalties (they are significant), UND opted to remain for the full notice period.

Do read the Big Sky ByLaws on exit penalties.

I have family that work Washington State and they have heard that CWU plans to expand enrollment up to 20-25k between 2020-2025. WSU is skeptical but who knows. They could jump and be a Big Sky lifer.

2020, when we are scheduled to leave, is three years. Do the math! ! !

Can count on you to get very uptight about realignment that you've given your word won't happen.

CWU only has an $18 million endowment. But anything is possible. Remember when E Washington moved up and there were many doubters.

Evergreen St is distingrating so fast, CWU will have to take up the slack. Heard that an Ellensburg lawmaker wants to defund Evergreen - it makes sense for his district.

To me a school that is material to make the move from DII to DI is one that has an enrollment pushing to 20,000 to point where they don't belong with the smaller public schools anymore.

Central Washington isn't that.

STILL CONFUSED.

You guys post like you all read an article somewhere that some of us missed.The OP just jumped right in "halfway through the movie".

11,12,13,14?? Who is leaving and when?

Can someone go back to square one for us "dummies"?

Help us non Big Sky folks to understand.

Thanks in advance.
