I just had a very close source to UMKC tell me they will join the summit after this upcoming year.

Either this kid is the next Graham Bensinger or he isn't. What is more likely?

Looks like he's barely out of high school. Probably still a virgin and we're supposed to take him seriously?

I'm in 9th grade lmao. But I won't take that to heart, but that is the source I got. "They are very high up on UMKC's adminstistration", and "very close to the program." But hello WAC fans! Glad to meet you all. Off to a great start, lmao. But you don't have to take me seriously, that's on you if you don't.... :)

But I think they felt the Summit was on the verge of collapse when they made the move; and had hoped a few of the other Summit schools would have made the same move at the time. But the addition of Denver and the return of Oral Roberts revitalized the Summit.

Foot print and academic wise, the Summit is a more tight knit conference. However, over the last few season the WAC has proven to be a more upwardly moving conference. Currently, the WAC is a better basketball conference than the Big West and the Big Sky. The large cities the WAC resides in actually help with travel. Unless a conference can be a bus league like the Big West, schools need to be near major airports for accessibility. So, I am not convinced the Summit would be much cheaper for UMKC. IMHO

UMKC, if they joined the summit would save 20% on what they spend now on travel. It would be much cheaper.

You keep throwing out that number and other statements with no sources.

It doesn't take a source to figure out busing is going to be cheaper then flying. What I can't figure out is this football idea, football for a school like UMKC is a money pit.

20% is a very specific number backed up by nothing.

I don't get it either, but I think it's good UMKC is focusing on Athletics.
