It makes a lot of sense. Now that we have to be self supporting as an athletic department we need to really look hard for ways to reduce expenses, and joining the MVC would greatly reduce our travel costs. The MVC is a very good conference in basketball year in and out. There are also two instate schools which makes for an instant and competitive rivalry. Think about it, we can stop playing Iowa who we rarely beat and we can replace them with Drake and UNI teams we usually stack up well against.
It makes the most sense in football where I think we would soon be a Division 1AA (I hate the new name) powerhouse. We would instantly be conference title contenders and have a legitimate shot at a national title or two.
