I think the WAC needs to get another school call up soon. Even if they get Tarleton State to agree to move up at the same time as Dixie State? They would have another school. They need to do this not just because of UMKC to SL, but Chicago State is in an even worst shape as than Western Illinios.
Normally I try not to reply to your nonsense, but this is just too dumb to leave alone. You know the MVC is based around more than geography, right?

Well, if Western or any of those guys were private, they’d have the votes. Is that what the current MVC is based on? Certainly isn’t program quality.

Actually, the current MVC seems to be based proximity to Chicago, Illinois. The closer you are to it, the more likely you are to become a MVC member.

They want success on the court and a public-private balance. That's basically it, in that order. Keep the privates happy and work your way to being a multi-bid league every few years or so. The mantra before the Creighton/Wooshock defections was "Not another Evansville." They're not interested in a loser program like WIU that's in the middle of nowhere and considers finishing above 300th in the RPI as a good year.

Evansville was a program that just fell off a rock in the 2000s. Before that they were a rock solid, top drawing program. Even then they still have a top notch facility.

I feel the MVC is more based towards St.Louis hence the close proximity to most conference members except Loyola and Valparaiso

RE: Augustana moving to Division I?
Congratulations Auggie on winning the D2 softball national championship! They finished the season 61-11 and were the unanimous #1 team in the national poll.

(Why did I reach back 8 pages to bump this thread? Some people remember how terrible Auggie was in the North Central Conference days and don't want anything to do with them. I think this shows that they have upped their game...at least at the D2 level. Last year their baseball team won the D2 national championship. Their men's basketball team won the natty in 2016. Women's basketball was Final Four in 2013. Men's wrestling was runner up in 2005 & 2010.)
