RE: D-II/D-III/NAIA movement
Here we go, earlier than last year:

http://www.victorysportsnetwork.com/Clip...embers.htm

"New members include: Columbia International University (S.C.), Cottey College (Mo.), Florida National University, Green Mountain College (Vt.), Lincoln College (Ill.), Ottawa University (Ariz.) and The Pennsylvania State University Schuylkill and Thomas More College (Ky.). Thomas More’s membership becomes effective at the beginning of the 2019-20 academic year."

There are 8, and I heard there was 9 applications. I was expecting Bahamas and Villa Maria, but they are MIA. I'd never heard of Cottey, they are about 70 miles south of KC, around 350 students, and their current athletics program is NJCAA.

All women's college. I thought it was a JUCO. Guess they are going to all 4 years.

They are/were JUCO athletics. Apparently they have a nice 4 year program already:

We may have to add three other organizations to the title. Movement of NJCAA, USCAA and NCCAA.

As for Junior and Community Colleges? How many will become a 4 year institutions to compete at a higher level? I know several JCs are now offerin 4 year degrees on the west coasts like in California, Arizona and Utah.

I can't find anything that says Cottey was ever just a junior college. I don't know how they do it but it seems there are some 4-year schools that compete in the NJCAA. Maybe that's what Cottey did; Arkansas Baptist College is a 4-year school in the NJCAA.

This would need a thread of its own.

I think Thomas More College(located in Crestview Hills,Kentucky-just across the river from Cincinnati) will join the NAIA as part of the Mid-South conference. After reading several accounts it appears they are just making sure they are covering all their bases to stay playoff eligible in their last NCAA D3 season.
