Would anyone really be that excited to see teams like Southern Illinois and Northern Iowa?
I'm not excited about it, overall. I've wondered what kind of league UNO would really be joining with the Valley...but at the same time, what kind of league is the Summit League going to be going forward?
The more and more I hear, it sounds like IUPUI and IPFW (long rumored as wanting to leave) could end up in the Horizon League. At that point, the Summit is again under the minimum number of baseball schools necessary for the NCAA auto bid. and, if the MVC is going to backfill with a Summit League team, I'd prefer UNO not be the odd man out stuck in a league that's teetering on falling apart or not able to support baseball anymore.
It's just so fluid. There are days where I think the Summit is the only choice, but other days the MVC sounds better than I initially thought.
