Park is indeed planning on starting athletics, next year. If that's the case I would expect an NAIA application in October. It would follow a similar trajectory as Ottawa in Surprise.

Your implication though is that of an Arizona conference. I've though about that for the last couple of days. I doubt it will come to be. The bare minimum is 6, and at that size you are just 1 school failure or association change from a failed conference. And all schools would have to support the same sports, or you would still have sports that aren't in an officially recognized conference. Meaning you'd still have to rely on other conferences affiliations for scheduling. Now if you get to 7, THEN you've got my attention. However I don't see other existing candidates in Arizona. There's an art school in Tucson, but it's really small...

I think the likely outcome will be for the metro Phoenix schools to become travel partners. ACU paired with Ottawa in the GSAC, and Benedictine-Mesa with Park in the Cal Pac.

Not implying an Arizona conference - the four schools are split among two conferences already, which is a good set up - Non Arizona schools get a two for one trip.

I do expect more schools to follow the Benedictine/Ottawa/Park model - Arizona is vastly underserved when it comes to residential private universities, and athletics is a good way to build a campus.


They only have 3 4 year public schools as well. Arizona Western, Eastern Arizona, Central Arizona, Pima and Phoenix College all seemed to be offering some 4 year degrees in some fields. I suspect one or two of them will go 4 year. A lot of the NAIA schools that they get came from the NJCAA that went 4 years. The west coast do need to get some more 4 year schools pretty soon, and I do not mean privates either.

After a quick look at Pima CC, it looks like any 4-year degree earned there has Northern Arizona on the diploma. No Arizona CC is offering a 4-year degree it is just the location is being used as an extension in cooperation with UofA, NAU, or ASU. Why would Arizona Western have such a program when NAU-Yuma is in the same buildings?

Because that doesn't fit David's narrative. NAU provides degree programs in conjunction with a number of state CC, as a cost savings and to help local students. There is ZERO money or desire to elevate any CC in Arizona to a four-year college.

I looked up the colleges in Arizona. As far I know from the accreditation and all that. Those schools could offer 4 year degrees without the use of the bigger schools. I have also seen some larger schools do help the smaller schools in conjunction to get a degree. Like Arkansas Tech have a nursing and Pre-med degrees. once the students graduate, they go to UAMS to get the post-grad degrees. It means schools in partnership with the large state flagship schools get students. Arkansas Tech was a junior College and so was Boise State. Ay help from the larger schools do help boast the enrollment for the local schools which some will become 4 years. As it is, Pima is the largest CC in Arizona. With Arizona, Arizona State and Northern Arizona growing too quickly with their rising population? they would need to start turning some CCs into 4 year schools. The Colorado river Valley from Bullhead City down to Yuma have population growth on both sides of the river. When I used to lived in that area, Bullhead City was under 10,000. Now, with the Lachlan, Bullhead, Kingman and other towns nearby? It is up to close to 100,000 thanks to the Casinos on the Nevada side of the river. Yuma is one of the largest cities in Arizona, and that is where the population growth is at. Arizona do need a 4 year school there which could attract California kids to come to school there. Would be nice to see them playing football at the NAIA level.

Delusions. Last time I checked, Arizona and Arkansas were 2 different states who have their own Uni systems and Departments of Education. Just because something happened in one place does not mean it has or will happen somewhere else.

No kidding. And acting like a population of 200K (Mohave County) is big enough to warrant the tens of millions needed to establish a four year college.

Especially a county with only 12K college age residents. Most of whom either are going to work in the casinos, move to Vegas, or if they want to go to college, they want to get the heck outta there.

They likely will end up closing but it's not a done deal yet. Sooner Athletic Conference football will be fine, they will still have 9 teams and I believe NAIA football plays a 10-game schedule.

The issue is football practices is fast approaching, and the dorms are off limits to students including the football players. The officials asking for the undergraduates to find a backup plans for this fall. I think the state might buy the campus. Maybe have it another campus for UCO. The state does not have a school there, and this could be like a situation like Umass. taken over Mount Ida.

You apparently did not recognize that I partially agreed with you.

No, there is not an issue with the fast approaching football practices because no one cares about that when the school is facing closure. The Sooner Athletic Conference football is in good shape with 9 teams not counting Bacone. The teams can play a 9-game schedule if they can't find someone to fill the suddenly-opened empty week in the schedule.

UMass did not save Mount Ida at all, the school is closed. The property will be used for other functions but there will be no traditional on campus undergraduate student presence and that also includes athletics.

They did saved the athletes by having them transferred to UMass.-Dartmouth.

As it is, Grambling State plays Bacone on September 18th which would be a big deal for them to try and find a replacement.

I feel so sad for Grambling. They have 3 months to scramble to find a schedule replacement for a SCHOOL THAT IS FACING CLOSURE. What are they doing scheduling a NAIA school anyway? There are things in life that are more important than a football game.

Probably didn't have that many choices of dance partners willing to go there. If they can't replace this game, they only have four home dates.

They have Oct. 6 as a bye week so that gives them two openings to replace Bacone if it comes to that. Hampton hosts Lane that week, and I'm guessing the buyout for a game like that is not high, but then logistics. If Hampton hosts, Grambling is back down to four home games. If Grambling hosts, Hampton is down to five, which they might be willing to settle for as the first part of a home-and-home. Or maybe they can cobble together a neutral-site classic for that weekend.

Southwest Baptist of Mo gained acceptance to the GLVC.

Benedictine of Illinois is next, according to some DII posters.

UW-Parkside went to the GLIAC and S Indiana will likely go to the OVC as soon as the OVC loses another school.

Sheperd is leaving MEC for the 2019/20 season.

I think the announcement for PSAC could be later today or tomorrow.

Can Frostburg still move up to replace them, or did the deadline pass?

The deadline for D2 membership applications is February 1 with approval determination in July. Frostburg State can apply on Feb 1, 2019 and if approved begin reclassifying in fall 2019 which will be the same time Virginia-Wise and Shepherd leave.
