Let me throw a wrench in here: what if the Board of Regents meeting about "intercollegiate sports" is to accept an invite from EITHER the MVC or the Horizon League, since the HL was in talks with prospective members as well?[/quote]
I believe all MVC schools except for Drake and UNI would be closer to Murray than all Horizon League schools except Northern Ky.[/quote]

Lol. Apparently Loyola in Chicago and Indiana State in terre haute are equidistant from Murray state. Valpo, however is closer than both despite being in the middle of the two cities, which are about 200 miles apart. Smh...

Looks like the system is out of wack a little bit. Might not want to use the "Quote" system right now.

So with 11, travel partners for Women's Sports would have to go.

Missouri State would be alone
UNI/Drake
Valpo/Loyola
Bradley/Illinois State
Indiana State/Evansville
SIU/Murray

That's doable, my guess is they'd figure out how to make Missouri State part of some kind of triad with UNI and Drake...

Just as they got to item #4, "Intercollegiate Athletics", they took a break. They know people are watching and are eagerly awaiting this topic. What...they think they're a prime time drama series?

A proposed 1.4 million dollar athletic slush fund is up for a vote.

Exit fee for the OVC with less than 24 months notice is 1 million

That 1.4 million number isn't a coincidence.

I would be shocked if Murray State is not an MVC member very soon.

President Davis endorsed the notion that the greater good of the university would be enhanced with an alignment with a conference of high athletic and academic standards. He used UNI as an example of the school's growth by joining the MVC. The head of regents presented a motion that the President and AD are authorized to present an invitation back to the board to be discussed in a special meeting which was passed unanimously. He also warned the members that this meeting could happen quickly and they "need to be nimble" to act.

I would bet we hear rumors of an official offer by next Wed/Thursday.

I would also bet on very similar discussions happening at Valpo right now but we don't know about it since a private school doesn't have to say anything.

I've believed all along that schools saying "no official offer has been made" means the MVC wants everything in a row and completed before an offer is extended. It limits the chance of a school publicly saying no. It allows for a quicker/smoother transition as well.
