This is a great move for WSU. Good Luck! I got a chuckle out of a statement from the chair of the AAC's Board of Directors. She commented on the strong athletic tradition that WSU will bring to that conference which is certainly true. She lost some credibility when, in the same sentence, she referred to WSU's strong academic tradition. Really?

Personally I'll still try to catch Shocker games whenever possible. Just a quality program with a dedicated fan base.

Its sad and it does lessen the MVC but it does leave next year wide open.....


Seconded. Good Luck to the Shox. Any team in the league would have done the same.

The nine returning MVC teams need to step it up. A magic bullet isn't coming with the addition of one or three teams.

So, with giving less than 24 months notice to the league, Wichita is not eligible to receive any money for their NCAA tournament credits, right? So, those will be distributed evenly among the remaining 9 Valley teams?

That's correct. The league was siphoning off as much as they could while WSU was in the league, so it's not much of a difference. Well, it's about $2.25MM over the next 6 years by my calculations, but whatever. Keep the change.

They weren't 'siphoning off' anything. The distribution structure has been the exact same since the 90s.

Split into 12 'shares'
1 to the league office
2 to the team earning the share
1 to each of the other 9 teams.

In the mid 1990's Wichita was siphoning off Illinois State, Bradley and SIU :)

In the year's leading up to Tulsa's exit, Missouri St, Evansville and UNI were brought on board. Only MSU and UE were competent at the time. UNI was a common punch line on the basketball floor. Drake went on probation, Creighton and Bradley had been driven into the ground and in the early stages of rebuilds. Wichita had just one finish higher than 6th (5th) in the post-Fogler days.

Many thought the league was doomed then. These moments are moments of opportunity, not defeat.

Completely agree.


Doesn't that presume that the publics want to spend more money than the private schools? SIU, InSU and MoSt are not in that position. I don't know the specifics but several are actually cutting athletic expenses.

Not necessarily. For example, Indiana State, if they have a long term vision to keep football would need to step down into a league like the OVC where they are on par with the other schools budget wise. UNI, Missouri State and SIU can try to ram their way into the MAC, Sun Belt or whatever FBS conference will have them.

Will definitely still follow the Valley but I'm weird in the sense that I typically follow the mids and lows more than the P5 anyways. Good luck.
