UMKC task force could call for them dropping to D2
LINK

Quote:“The task force originally started as one of a few projects looking at various operations and budgets,” said Luppino. “Then it evolved from there. It really got going in earnest last spring. A lot of the heavy lifting was done last semester.”

The CIE Athletics Task Force addresses three primary questions. The first is whether UMKC should continue to have Intercollegiate Athletics and what level of subsidy for the department should come from general revenues.

The second is whether UMKC should drop to a lower division or continue as a NCAA Division I. If we should drop, then what is the best fit and why? And lastly, if the school decides to remain in Division I, should switching conferences be considered?

“We’ve looked at all kinds of data,” said Luppino. “Not only about UMKC, but about different schools and different options for athletics. We’ve been comparing different costs and benefits of different programs and divisions.”

Prepping the folks at home for the change in conferences, which will reduce expenses.

Yeah this isn't surprising. They have been having some serious budget problems for a while and have had budget cuts and layoffs.. They have never found success, not in the Summit and not in the WAC. D2 seems much more likely than D1.

The state of Missouri is not that interested in funding higher education like California is and were not for profit like GCU. Not necessarily opposed to it. Division 1 is rigged against the small guys anyway.

What would UMKC leaving mean for Chicago State? They'd be alone as a major outlier with an expiring contract..... but that would leave the WAC at 7 members

Worth noting their contract with the WAC is up at the end of this season. This is almost certainly their last year in the WAC imo.

Probably keep them in on a year to year contract until the WAC can find another immediate move. Chicago State has nowhere else to go so they will probably stay. Definitely not ideal.
