    This is the next step for UCO football and UCO athletics, interesting growth going on right now on campus. How much longer might we be playing D2 football? Just speculating. . . obviously, you’d need to see us take it to the next level this year in the MIAA first.
    Roll Chos!

    I don't foresee UCO moving to D-I. Which conference would invite the Bronchos? The Southland, WAC, Mo Valley?? IF some conference invited UCO my money would be on the Southland. They have thirteen members (11 football) and Central Arkansas is an outlier too, so in a way an odd travel partner. But looking at the LSC board you'd think they'd all *cough Tarleton cough* get an invite soon.

    UCO would be the 2nd largest institution in their conference by enrollment, but UCO only has five men's sports and one of them is wrestling which the SLC doesn't offer.

    I could be wrong depending upon the new president is. But whomever replaces Betz would likely have that choice in their hands. I have mixed feelings about the Chos being D-I one day myself. But whatever happens I just want them to compete.

    I don’t foresee it happening in the near future. I would like to think it would at least be a discussion they would have if we had a few of our other sports become more competitive. UCO dwarfs its MIAA counterparts in terms of enrollment, we’ve just never had the support (i.e. funding) to compete at the next level. Just seems like that culture is changing with the Paycom CEO taking the lead. Hopefully other alums will follow suit. I hope to the see the university and athletics programs grow in the next 5-10 years.

    I think 4 d-1 programs is more than Oklahoma could support.

    We might as well swap places with KU, any of the MIAA programs literally could have done what they did in the Big 12 last season. lol

    Even worse, the new AD is football focused, so he'll probably managae to screw up one of the premiere BBall schools in the country.

    Good evening folks..got room for 1 more in the MIAA/UCO group? I'm moving to Edmond in September (closer to my family as they age). Seemed like a good thing to do, with lots of built in friends in the immediate area (and some good golf courses too).

    Not sure when I'll get to take in the first game, maybe on 9/22 depending on what time we roll in with the moving trailers/trucks. More than likely, will be 10/20. Hope to catch a few along the way this year (and you never know where else I might pop up in MIAA land)

    Trading the Purple and Gold at D1 UNA for the Bronchos.

    You're close enough, you could just be a Pitt fan instead.

    A lot depends on your feelings toward the letter H. Love it? The Bronchos are your team. Hate it? Pittsburgh - H is your choice.
