    Yes it was a "puff peace" as RC called it.
    All 4 States/Province of the GNAC have that don't they? New solution. Dixie, Black Hills, SD Mines, Chadron State and NM Highlands (plus Westminster in non football sports) start the new Straight Edge Conference and CWU, WOU, SFU and APU join a rebranded RMAC - Reefer Madness Athletic Conference.

    Yes, you have to give him multiple recruiting classes to evaluate his work. I just genuinely feel bad for the guy - I don't think that he's been put in a position where he can be successful.

    Good to know that he has some ins - There's some good talent in Washington. However, for that program to be sustainable, recruiting has to be strong in Canada. Tuition is much more expensive for international students, and the city is expensive to live in. And we know that SFU doesn't draw much in gate, and doesn't have a deep fundraising pool.

    It's hard enough FINDING the gate at SFU right now.

    Despite the low amount of teams, the GNAC keeps getting national playoff berths. As frustrating as round-robin can be and the lack of west coast teams, the conference has been well-represented in post-season.

    That's a testament to the coaches and players at APU and CWU in particular (and Humboldt as well; man, they're going to be missed). They know that they're up against the wall with the way the GNAC is set up, but the Azusa's and CWU's of the world find their way to get into the playoffs, especially when it comes to out-of-conference scheduling (Azusa-Colorado Mines is a great example). I give the GNAC teams a lot of credit for stepping up and earning their way into the playoffs on a consistent basis.

    That is great news! How long till it is expected to be open, 2 years (as in one more season with the slippery slope)?

Again, as a fan I would love CSU Pueblo to go to Burnaby. I don't know that Coach Wristen, President Mottat or AD Plinske would agree though. I do know the RMAC wanted to to an 11 game closed schedule until Western NM bolted to the LSC. I don't think it would happen, but I could see them possibly being open to adding CWU, APU and/or WOU as a football only member(s). I think the passport/customs thing would preclude SFU. That's my 2 cents. But I'm just a wanker rambling on, so probably all it's worth.
    I don't know about the wanker business, but a scheduling alliance with the four remaining GNAC & the LSC members sounds like a viable solution for out of conference games. I believe the WT Buffs play AZUSA PACIFIC annually as it is currently and have CWU in Canyon this coming season. Hopefully the Buffs can have future games with Western Oregon & Simon Fraser as well.

    I was called a wanker earlier in this thread. Anyway, there are rumors of Dixie State heading to D1 which would free up another OOC week for the RMAC. I'd be all over some home and home arrangements with CWU, Azusa and WOU. I personally would welcome SFU also as I think Metro Vancouver is an amazing place. Not sure the the various RMAC heads would share my enthusiasm for it.

    So our AD announced today at the signing day event on campus that the LSC and the GNAC will be moving forward with a scheduling agreement beginning in 2020. Supposed to be officially announced in the next 2 weeks or so. So everyones life just got easier in both conferences, at least as far as that goes.

Don't blame them, GNAC is the one in dire need here and I'm thankful the LSC is at least considering this. Round robin GNAC plus 3 GNAC teams is 9 games. One can find 1 or 2 more to complete the slate. Thank you, LSC, for helping the GNAC out throughout the years.
    The scheduling agreement for football between the LSC & GNAC schools is a great idea. I know WT A&M plays a couple of GNAC schools every year for the time being. I believe it is a great recruiting incentive too for teams to go to Calif & the Northwest every year for a couple of games. Whether the GNAC teams like traveling to Texas for games is another subject, however.

    Good stuff, thanks. Hopefully that will end the move up or move down talks or D3 fans suggesting schools cut football or other GNAC fans predicting and hoping GNAC schools dump football.

    What is the schedule situation for 2019 now that Humboldt is gone?

    CWU has not posted their 2019 schedule, but doing a little research, I know that SW Baptist is coming to Eburg, and the Wildcats will travel to WTAMU and Idaho. With a league RR, that gets us to 9 games.

    Better chance to win at Idaho than EWU I think, but still a tough test. I'd love to see the Kingsville game added this season after cutting it last season, although I know the stadium situation caused that.

    At least Dixie left a few year ago and is bolting the RMAC and not GNAC right now.

    9 games- probably hard to find another but who knows what might open up.

    They filled it up with WNMU and Ferris.
