I guess that's answers the question, doesn't it...?

I didn’t think about that Hoppy, but you probably on to something. Valpo stinking it up and we are still in the OVC smmfh. If you were an MVC school would you really want us kicking your ass year in and year out on the regular? Not surprising.

I don't think it means anything personally. I believe OVC schedules are made several years in advance and you just plug in the preseason holes you have open. Plus, you can't wait around to release a schedule for something that may or may not happen.

I wouldn't be surprised to see an invite and we join the following year. Say we get one this spring, and instead of immediately jumping ship, we go in the 2019-20 season. That gives everyone plenty of time to adjust. Besides, the MVC isn't looking to plug a leaking hole like it did when Wichita State bolted. I think they're fine with 10 teams, and will go to 12 if a viable 12th member is discovered. But they aren't desperate to expand.

If we join the MVC the football travel budget will jump quite a bit. Trips to North Dakota and South Dakota .

You really think the OVC would want us for football only?

No they wouldn’t let us stay football only, but the OVC and the MVCF may not be our only options.

Don’t like Homecoming being that late again. Seems like early to mid October is better. Probably not that important to the success of the team. But it’s extremely important to the University.

Another FCS conference that would let us join football only.
