Completely agree.

Also, WSU fans bitched about travleing to St Louis for a conference tournament. You do realize you now have to go to freaking Hartford, CT and Orlando, FL for the foreseeable future.

And then Tulsa.

A moving conference tournament that tries to accommodate all members. Novel concept.

Vote has been taken 12-0 to invite WSU to the AAC.

http://www.kansas.com/sports/college/wichita-state/article143288204.html

Every time I pull up this thread it shows 35 votes for MVC expands. Evidently there are 35 posters in this forum who are not familiar with the MVC Commissioner and the history of the MVC

Orlando > St. Louis. No desire to visit St. Louis because the city sucks. Orlando would be a nice spring trip (and relatively cheap flight from Wichita).

Hartford .. Is meh, but at least new.

Also they have talked about having Tulsa in rotation too. With WSU added, it will happen if they want a full house.

We bitched about driving. Since we are the aviation capital of the world we will be flying. All is good.
