Thread: G-MAC All-Sports and Conference Business Thread

    BTW - I really don't think the MEC will force WJU out (if they don't start football). I'm sure there are many in the MEC who would like to. However, I think status quo benefits the MEC - and they likely know it.

    This is just MY OPINION, so please don't read anything into it. It's been no secret, that I'm not a big fan of WJU. To me, they've always seemed uppity or holier than thou. Maybe they view the G-MAC as beneath them. After all, that's where the deplorable folks like AB, D&E and OVU had to go when the WVIAC broke up.

    Anyway, would I care if they suddenly joined the G-MAC? No. Do I care what they think of us, or do I care if they don't want to join us? Again, No.

    hey they are holier than me. GLIAC is stupid statement G-MAC does not need a school that talks too much and talks foolish stuff.

    FYI. Trevecca wins round 1 of the volleyball rematch in Nashville! Next round at the end of the month in Cedarville. Could be a new queen at the top of G-MAC volleyball!

    I think TNU would argue that they are already the queen - as defending champs and preseason favorites.

    Hope CU can reverse the trend in a few weeks!

    Can anyone post the AB roster? I have lost track of the redshirts etc. Thanks

    No. For football, they have something called "earned access." It is, sorta, an auto bid, but to qualify the conference team would have to be ranked in the top 10 in the region.

    For example. Lets say, next year, that the G-MAC does not have a team ranked in the top 7 in the region. But, they have a conference champ that is ranked 10th in the region. Via earned access, they would be one of the 7 teams to make the playoffs. If our conference champ wasn't ranked in the top 10, they don't make it.

    I'm glad basketball season will be starting soon. I know the football team beat Central State. The football team has played some very good competition. People may not realize how good these teams were that they played. Still, the athletic department is limping right now. We'll see how they do against Malone and AB in football. The entire season for all three teams really depends on who can win out. Odds are it will be AB now.

    Having said that, I think Wesleyan's entire athletic department is slipping. I would say finances have a lot to do with it. From a realistic point of view, a lot of what KWC is relying on right now is a positive review from the SACSCOC after this semester.

    Alumni, what it is the current status or level of review?, possible consequences? I remember this discussion from awhile back, but completely lost track of it. Hopefully things are on the mend/upswing. Love having KWC in the conference.

    On a related topic, does anyone know if G-town got over the hump, or are they still "in the thick of it"? I really thought they would have made a great G-MAC member. I think it was very unfortunate timing that their D2 attempt was at the same time as their accreditation issues. Traditionally, G-town has been a very strong academic small school.

    BTW - I started a G-MAC Basketball thread. I thought we could keep the other sports and general conference discussion here, but thought that basketball now deserved its own thread (so we don't annoy basketball purists with silly talk about soccer, volleyball and lacrosse). It is currently buried deep down the list in the Midwest section.

    The G-MAC has posted some of the 2017-2018 conference schedules on the website. The first two schedules I looked at were men's and women's soccer. I didn't see Hillsdale on either list and immediately started thinking ... uh oh, HC got cold feet. Nope - they just don't have soccer teams. I did not know that.

    Nor did I... A bit surprising.

    Nice to see AB bringing back former players to coach etc. Not sure the roster looks as good as I expected. Time and games will tell.

    Interesting... Wasn't aware that they posted it. A couple of names that are NOT listed give me pause. Oh well.

    That is what I thought as well. Lost some size.

    The original Warning from the SACSCOC expired after two years. The college was placed on Probation this past summer after another review by the SACSCOC. Kentucky Wesleyan is hoping to come off this Probation after this semester when the college is reviewed again. KWC recently got a three million dollar contribution to go into the endowment fund. The college has raised money. It's possible that the review committee takes the college off of any possible sanctions. That is what the Wesleyan President has said earlier in the semester when this was on the news. Whether that happens or not is up to the SACSCOC. An institution can remain on Probation for two years. If after two years the institution does not show significant improvement in the review areas with real sustainability proof, the institution can then lose accreditation.

    That isn't the complete basketball roster. I guess he starts working on it (that being the SID) and adds to it but has it available to the public. He did that with the basketball schedule this summer and we added some games later on. Mitchell is not a freshman but a junior. One of the guys on that roster I don't even think is in school. The freshman aren't going to be put up yet. There is going to be some redshirting. Who gets redshirted will depend on practice. Sanar and the Sanders kid (JUCO) are upperclassmen that will back up at PG. The battle in my opinion for that spot comes down to Butler and Reggie Robinson. There are several freshmen that will play a lot. Practice begins tomorrow so Zimmerman is going to make decisions based on that and scrimmages. As far as size, this is the most size we have had since Dodd days. A lot of length and athleticism.

    One player will miss the first seven games due to an academic issue. He may never play for us if he can't start figuring the whole process of student-athlete out. Pictures haven't been done yet nor have bios. I wouldn't put too much stock in this early roster.

    A lot of former players work on master's degrees at WVU while serving as assistants here. WVU has a master's degree in both athletic coaching and in athletic admin. Malcolm wanted to play overseas but the right thing didn't work out. He brings a lot as a mentor to two young PGs. Ron graduated with a PE major. Tobias graduated and works on a master's in teaching certification because he wants to go back to Alabama and coach high school ball. They basically get free room and board to coach....a chance to get some experience....and travel up the road to get their master's degree.

    Thanks good info. Again great to have players return. I do think putting up part of a roster hurts the school and the G-MAC. I see some schools, at first , only put up returning players I guess that is okay.
