Honestly, long term, St Thomas could be that 12th private school that the MVC is looking for to pair with #11 Murray State to maintian the public-private balance

Would be interesting to see where they could go with that. If they're successful in FCS then could the MAC be an option one day? Seems like they would fit. Of course, that would be much further into the future.

St. Thomas is a very good Division III program. I think they could beat some teams in the PFL now. They'll never get into the MVFC so long as there is an MVFC.

Guess I missed something. WHY would NCAA give them a waiver to go DI from DIII-----since normally going to DII first is required?? What special circumstance exists?

They were kicked out of their previous conference and have loads of money?

Maybe the lack of D2 Hockey helps them?

They'll have to fold the franchise.

If no waiver is granted, and I doubt that it will be rejected, then they're stuck in D3 without a conference. I doubt the NSIC adds them as they're looking to downsize should Augustana is the Tommies' SL replacement.

Hmmm... and how does this effect the Great Northern FBS Conference?

The montana Schools insisted on this before aligning with the Summit group . 03-wink

Ah yes...I remember now. The Montana schools have rebuked every offer to move to FBS because they (and Idaho who moved down to throw off the scent of the BSC media) are really in cahoots with the UI and the Dakota schools to create an FBS conference with a record number of domed stadiums... or something like that. 03-drunk

Article About St. Thomas


They are also reporting that the officials at Summit League will be making official campus visit to Augustana in a few weeks. It would be a coup that Summit League gets 3 schools to join in less than a year.

Yes, quite the coup! Can’t believe the Summit League was able to snag UMKC, St Thomas, and Augustana over the MAC and Big 10. All they need is Upper Iowa to make it the best off-season ever!!!!

St. Thomas, Minnesota
Butler, Indiana
Dayton, Ohio
Valparaiso, Indiana
Drake, Iowa

If Evansville could restart football, they could be in there as well.
Pioneer League Football do need to get more football and break into regions like Pioneer League Football Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, North Central, South Central and West Coast.

He's on a hot streak. It was Tarleton moving up last week.

Let me know when Upper Iowa goes DI

It’s happening. See link above. They wouldn’t grab Augustana for 11 if the master plan wasn’t Upper Iowa for 12. DavidSt is literally breaking the fabric of the universe.

May not be them, but Central Oklahoma be a travel partner for Oral Roberts. Either them or Central Missouri.
