It wasn't long ago that Denver announced it would leave the WAC after a just a year and move to the Summit League.



Now we know that the Denver will be waving to UMKC, as the Kangaroos go the opposite direction on I-70. UMKC joins the WAC this summer.



Obviously, two different perspectives on reality...

The Kansas City Star's Blair Kerkhoff, on sports talk radio yesterday, speculated that North Dakota State and South Dakota State could ultimately join the Missouri Valley Conference. They already play in the MVC football league.



His prediction was predicated on Creighton and Evansville leaving for other conferences.

If CU and UE leave and are replaced by the Dakota schools, then Drake and Bradley need to find a new home ASAP.

If determined that B and D need to leave because C and E leave, the only geographically "convenient" option (using the term loosely) with other private schools is the Horizon League. Loyola and Valparaiso are there already. Is that where E would go if C jumped ship? Horizon has 9 members now. Adding B, D, E would get to 12. It seems the MVC is one of the very few conferences with no change in the last 20 years. I'd rather stay MVC if possible but we'll see what shakes out.

If D went to the Horizon, Valpo would want to replace us in the Valley.
