    No because it wasn't a one bid league then. Before Creighton left they had the opportunity to be kind of like the A10. When they had Creighton you could maybe even get 4 bids out of the MVC. Now it takes Wichita State having a good year and losing in the tournament to get two.

    Wichita State staying pretty much relegates them to the WCC type conferences.

    We seriously need to curb stomp the living piss out of them, and this fall should be a golden opportunity. We return our entire staff and plenty of play makers. They have yet to assign an Offensive Coordinator.

    That being said I totally expect a 4th quarter nail biter. Which drives me absolutely insane we can't find any decent cupcakes like 99% of normal programs.

    I hope yo do too. I'm ready for the end of the Mark Farley era, but true to form, he'll play Iowa State tough or beat them and then lose to Western Illinois, South Dakota or Indiana State. Its the Farley way.

    I don't ever recall them even getting three, much less four.

    Lower level FBS teams will be able to demand a ransom if more conferences outlaw FCS opponents.

    I do but can't recall year, but assume ti was within last 10 years? I know UNI was one. Assume Creighton and Wichita were other two?

    2006. UNI, Wichita State, SIU, Bradley.

    Wichita and Bradley both got to the Sweet 16.

    See somebody beat me to it. Sorry!

    New guy seems personable and energetic. I don't think they'll set the world on fire, but I think they can have a nice mid pack team with the right coach and occasionally have a chance at the tournament.

    I'd heard he had charisma/energy and that definitely appears to be the case if you've caught any interviews.
