The Horizon has never taken a DII team and that won't change unless they loose a lot of members.
I haven't seen any desire to move up from UIndy.

Bellarmine and Lindenwood will move up eventually, but it's more a matter of timing. I could see the OVC taking one of them simply because North Alabama is already under contract to the Atlantic Sun (and Big South) for their Division I transition. Bellarmine's invitation would likely be contingent on adding football.

But that is NOT what you get pushback for.

Have been assured numerous times by several XDSU posters that all the remaining Summit teams are very happy there.

Such delusions are still rampant.

He prefers DI but wants and needs a new conference. When is the "Summit League is staying the same now in spite of losing 30 odd schools in 30 years" crowd going to come to their senses? It's as if they aren't capable of simple logic and reasoning.

He sounds a lot like the UND President when he suggested the BSC was not an option. Smart man. IPFW belong in a regional league. And by the way, no one pushed back on IPFW leaving, they push back on your idiotic idea that around every corner is another conspiracy which is going to move UND to the big time.

As for "logic and reasoning". Coming from you... that's about as funny as it gets.

Sounds like they are not long for the WAC. I would think they go D3 or head to the Summit, I have a hard time seeing them drop athletics all together. Much like our friends in northern ND, you know who you are, the western travel is killing UMKC.
