3 years. Time to wait to poach the best available program, to create the elusive P6 :joker

The merged LIU athletics teams are now the Sharks. That is all.

I also missed, thanks to MissourValleyUnited for pointing this out, that Long Beach State is now the Sharks as well (announced in May). So The Beach was first. Maybe Longwood will also change their name to the Sharks, just for all out confusion.

Purdue Fort Wayne to make a major announcement regarding their athletic program tomorrow:

Jeff Goodman is reporting that the announcement will be that Purdue Fort Wayne is heading to the Horizon League.

Move makes a lot of sense from a geographic perspective as they are in a far better footprint than they would be in the Summit League.

The Summit League welcoming UMKC back makes more sense now :lol:

Squirrel and TAS, any chance this move accelerates Bellarmine moving to the Horizon League? Who does the Summit League go after?

This is very interesting, with ramifications in scheduling, setting aside Bellarmine for a second.

This puts the Horizon at 11. 20 game double round robin if they want it. Going to 20 conference games seems like the trend du jour these days, from the big boys and the little guys, with the mid-majors in between being the ones against it. Is the Horizon going to 20 conference games?

If not, Bellarmine kind of is an obvious candidate for spot 12 in the Horizon.

Summit picked up UMKC, so they can sit tight at 9, or do whatever they fancy. Maybe they try to end the WAC. Please for the love of god raid the WAC.

Look for Horizon to bring in Robert Morris. Checks off private and "eastern" which Detroit will be pushing for. Opening new arena.

Bellarmine and USI designated rainy day options.

Tommies might be working strings for a waiver to straight-shoot from D3 to Summit.
