RE: So who goes to the Summit?
I think the first choice is UMKC, second choice is Northern Colorado. If the league lost further membership and got desperate, I could see them trying to lure in Utah Valley or SIU-Edwardsville, but they might look at high-level D2 schools before going with SIUE. No reason to go beyond 10 at this point unless you're starting a football championship.

So who goes to the Summit?
What would be the advantage of Montana schools leaving Big Sky?

I didn't know the Slummit was expanding. They'll still have enough schools if they lose one right? 1 out of 8 for an NCAA bid is better than 1 out of 10 for the odds

Academics and similar research schools. The NoDak schools blow the doors of the Montanas for total attendance and championships.

All of them are tired of being constrained by former teachers colleges and commuter schools.

Ask WVU why they joined the Big 12. It was more than money. The best conferences are academic consortium. The Big Sky's academics are a joke.

With Idaho and EWU, its no worse travel. Eastern Montana would be the central part of a new Summit. Billings could host tournaments, and Billings is where Montana growth is. Bozeman is growing, but Missoula is like a Portland leper colony: all new businesses stay clear of it.

IPFW, W Illinois and possibly Oral Roberts are already banging down doors. It's stable if you grew up in a toxic family.

But if it's Grand Canyon who leaves the WAC would be vulnerable to lose UMKC and New Mexico St to the Slummit. I could see it both ways...right now the WAC is stronger, but...maybe Chicago St survives simply because one of the WAC or Slummit needs them to have enough eligible teams.

GCU does not have an offer. IUPUI does.

If ORU leaves the Summit, why would UMKC join? UMKC grew tired of the Dakota-centric nature of the Summit before UND joined.

Tulsa is closer mileage to the Dakota schools than the University of Montana is. Another fantasy thread.

Does ORU bus anywhere in the Summit? Or do they fly Everywhere? Sometimes population densities force a team to make a conference change. The WAC actually makes sense for ORU, which uses athletics as advertising for new students.
