MVC Thriving Despite Loss of WSU

So far, the Valley's status in D1 is substantially better this year than it was last year, and the national press is taking notice.

Every team has improved except for ISUr (which was expected) and SIU. SIU is basically exactly the same as last year. Multiple schools have improved 50+ spots in KenPom. I admit that I thought the Valley would be pretty bad this year but I'm still not exactly sure what has created this giant step forward by the majority of the conference.

it sucks losing a nationally recognized powerhouse.
With that said, I'd rather have a strong league top to bottom where any team could conceivably knock off a P5 team (like it was a decade ago) than have a weaker conference with one powerhouse.
With what I've seen so far, (it's early, I know) it looks like we're heading in the right direction.
