Any rumors in St. Louis about MVC expansion?  If so, 1 or 2 teams.  Which schools are the leading candidates?

There’s a ginormous thread on this over at mvcfans.com if you have a few hours to kill.

I’m not sure what the plans are, the only thing they could do was go 12.

I think most people are in on Murray state, but after that it gets a little hairy. But schools like omaha, NKU, Belmont, pretty much any of the summit league schools, and St. Louis have been floated. I’m sure I’m missing some.

Not MVC related buy there is some conjecture that Mountain West will add 2 schools with Gonzaga and BYU being thrown out.  Others mentioned were St Mary's, NMSU, UTEP, and Rice.  MVC needs to be forward thinking with their expansion thoughts.

Belmont is kind of growing on me.  I know it's certainly not sexy, but I'm telling you the Dakota schools are making big strides.  We had our asses handed to us by SDSU this year, and they might be a team that could pull an upset this year in the tourney.  As state schools they have some money, vs adding a Northern Kentucky, Omaha. etc., who do absolutely nothing for me.  Zero fan base or much of anything at Omaha.

I think most people would be on board with the South Dakota schools but I don’t think they would want to come.

the main reason to think of expansion is the way the power conferences are going to 20 games. the MWC is probably adding Gonzaga and maybe more and will probably do the same. the A-10 has 14 members and could easily do 20 games. So your choices for quality non-conference games starts to dry up. if you add Murray State and/or Belmont and go to 20 games you can at least boost scheduling.
