    Northwood is on the wish list of many, but highly doubtful.
    D3 schools are long, long shots. The good ones are established in long-time leagues and the "non-scholarship" game is easier to play than funding and accounting for the athletic scholarships at the D2 level.
    I have been talking to myself about this topic. I would like Hillsdale to go back to the GLIAC. ;)

    You may be surprised, I did hear that Thomas More was in some discussions with D2 conferences. But the interest was more on the Thomas More side, the conferences were not impressed.

    This is similar to Uindy i think. Their AD had been with the schools since the 70s and is near retirement, so some think that moving won't happen till after she is gone.

    Football would benefit from playing Hillsdale, Findlay, Tiffin, ODU.
    They have not benefited from lack of computer points from playing KyWy & LEC

    I wonder if Walsh will get better being the only game in town now

    The recent infractions case involving the women's basketball program might have had something to do with that lack of interest from the conferences, but that's just a speculative guess on my part. I'd bet the conferences in question were probably the GMAC and the GLVC, and I can't blame them for saying, "Nah, we good. Thanks anyway."
