You are working under the assumption that no plans, talks, etc have happened until this weekend. That would be false. Wichita leaving is not a new development to the league office.

Is this is all planned out...why the need for an emergency meeting?

Just because the league office has it all planned out doesn't mean much if the remaining league presidents don't go along with it. The meeting is probably to get everybody on the same page, or at least, to get information on what the other members of the league are thinking.

Being prepared and having ideas of how best to proceed are not the same as "having a plan."

Tribe is not saying the league has a crisis plan in place, but rather, they were neither caught unprepared for this nor lack an idea of how they would address it.

The meeting this weekend rather begins the serious conversations of how they'll formally handle Wichita's exit, and begin the next phase.

An "Emergency Meeting" could also just mean one that was not previously scheduled or planned.

As others have stated, there should be at least the framework of a plan in place based on the possibility of WSU leaving. This shouldn't be a surprise and they should not be in a position of panic but instead simply formally putting plans into motion. If they are surprised or there are no plans, then Elgin should be submitting his resignation papers on Sunday.

The word "emergency" was a headline on Twitter to get views. No one in the MVC office called this an "emergency" meeting.

Fair enough...my point was that maybe the Presidents will overrule the AD's and decide to go with 9 next year.

The "emergency" is almost certainly to approve Wichita's departure terms to allow the Shockers to leave and carry forward with a 9 member league in 2017-18 and possibly 18-19 while talking face-to-face about the merits and issues of 9, 10, and 12 team models and potential candidates.

There are no departure terms that need approved. Everything is outlined in the conference bylaws.

Maybe this is just a way for all of them to get a weekend stay in STL paid for with money generated by Wichita State. Par-tay Saturday night, meet for 30 minutes Sunday at 1pm, then hit the links at 2pm.
