Horizon extends offer to new member
The Horizon has added another member school to replace Valparaiso.

@TonyPaul1984 (Detroit News): BREAKING: Horizon League has extended a membership offer to a new institution. I don't know who yet. Decision coming in next two weeks.

@TonyPaul1984: New Horizon League member likely is one of these schools: IPFW, Indy, Omaha, Belmont, Murray State, SIU-Edwardsville ... or Grand Canyon.

IPFW please.

Robert Morris is probably favorite to many schools but not on the list.

Decision in next two weeks? By whom and on what?

You'd think if they extended the offer, then the league presidents would've already long ago contacted the school to do the vetting, site visit, etc. and would also thus have the votes to get the school in. And why would said school entertain the new league if it wasn't interested in accepting the invite?


If this isn't fake, then seems like it should be a done deal already.

no Robert Morris or Indy. New Member has baseball- and neither one of those have it.

So a high probability it's a Summit school. Might we see N. Colorado get an invite to the Summit?
The Big Sky would be at 10 members (12 football) and readjusted geographically.

@TonyPaul1984
Source: Murray State, Belmont aren't on Horizon League's list.

@TonyPaul1984
Been told it's very unlikely to be Omaha.

So Fort Wayne, Grand Canyon, or SIUE.

edit: He just posted an article.
