    20th in a row. Close enough. lol

    Pretty unreal that GVSU and Ferris have combined to win 39 of the 46 Presidents' Cups given out.

    Is it because they recruit D1 Athletes?

    GVSU should move up.

    Can't move up when you're already on top.

    Well they're going to GV, which is a D2 school, ergo, not D1 athletes.

    So it’s GV’s fault for being able to recruit better. Really!

    Congrats to GV. Looks like the women sports are a bulk of those points...also KleShreen saw your post on MLive about Wayne having way more enrollment than anyone else and thus should be better. Two things, 1) a large chuck of Wayne's enrollment is their Graduate programs just an FYI, and 2) Wayne has consistently been in the top 4 of the GLIAC President's Cup ranking in recent years.

    I think the big difference between GV and other GLIAC schools competing is GV has had dominant Women's sports consistently over any others (Albeit Ashland W. Bball)....GV's women's track/cross country and GV women's soccer has been a hallmark of their entire athletic program since I can remember.

    Nice try, but Montana has a lot less rain that WA. And even 2/3rds of WA is pretty dry.

    Does GV offer a "Geography West of the Mississippi" class?

    My point on recruits was what Kle posted above; if they go to GV, they are DII recruits.

    I wasn't saying anything negative about Wayne. I just like to bring them up when people go on their uninformed soapboxes of "25k students playing against a bunch of small schools!" but nobody ever mentions anything about Wayne having even more students. And nobody complains about Wayne because Wayne isn't beating them at everything. Again, not a shot at Wayne, just a fact. If Wayne was winning 20 presidents' trophies in a row, everyone would be complaining about Wayne's enrollment and not mentioning GV having way more students than everyone else in the league as well. Just low-hanging fruit to pick and it is annoying when people get that lazy to bring up enrollment.

    Schools can decide to up there enrollments. Just excuses. If you recruit well you’ll reap the benefits. Just look at Ashland they only have 2,500 students and they do very well for themselves. EXCUSES.

    Schools generally would not decide what their enrollment numbers should be based upon athletics.

    athletics has nothing to do with enrollment numbers UNLESS you are suggesting that students want to go to schools that offer then alternative viewing enjoyment watching winning teams in various sports, that I can agree with - so maybe its enrollment has nothing to do with athletics instead of the other way as I previously stated, or maybe they are both wrong or both correct - I don't know
