We need to get the MVFC in on this. But Eastern first.

A few of our basketball players were having some fun with this on Twitter over the weekend.

The MVC has to go on the offensive - recruit at least 5-6 existing FBS teams and make the move up
Tulsa
Memphis
Arkansas State
Ball State
Northern Illinois
Western KY

We'd have 16 in hoops (East and West or North and South) - 10 teams for football. WIU, Indy State, Drake could all play in Pioneer while YSU jumps over to MAC (which would be a natural for them)

why on earth would memphis and tulsa leave a conference that generates more athletic revenue, has more national exposure, has members that have better academic rankings/profile, has members that are in larger metropolitan/population areas to join a lesser conference in so many ways? Memphis was in the hunt during the BIG 12 expansion talks a year ago.

The reality is that the MVC losses its top members to better conferences and replaces them with new member's that are generally lower in sports profile than existing members. Has there ever been an exception to that in MVC's history? It would be great if ISU could get in a conference where members had a higher academic reputation as the MVC/MVFC has a few academic mutts and that hurts ISU's image.

I've seen these fantasy conference re-alignment wish lists in a lot of posts in basketball and football forums. Unfortunately, it sometimes reminds me of sports call-in shows on local radio when a caller suggests packaging a couple of our (name the favorite MLB team) utility infielders and a struggling veteran that is no longer helpful (for example, Dexter Fowler in St. Louis) and maybe a minor league prospect and deal that package to the Nationals for Max Scherzer and Bryce Harper. The deal has to make sense for both sides. There is no way that a team in a more lucrative or higher profile conference is going to join several FBS schools to form a lower profile, less lucrative conference.

So you're saying there is a chance.

We're going to get our crack at a FBS victory on Saturday and we're excited about that. The thing that blows my mind is that North Dakota St. does not have a FBS game this season. They're the defending Nat'l Champs, they're ranked #1 and they have a 4-year starter at QB. If that isn't the time to play a FBS opponent then I don't know when. Add in that NDSU wins their FBS games. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe nobody in the FBS wants to play them. Here's your chance Bison lurkers. Give us some insight into the scheduling. Was every effort made to schedule a FBS game? Is the FBS playing duck and hide? That would be a laugh.
