    From RMU's perspective, my scenario is hardly a hallucination. It's speculation based on Monmouth's exact experience, almost a beat-for-beat historical recreation.

    If RMU were to get a Horizon invite, what is so outrageous about this scenario? The MVFC has an uneven number of teams, RMU makes it even. RMU and Youngstown are only like 50 miles apart, so Youngstown would no longer be acres away from the rest of the league, and schools can budget one Pittsburgh flight a year rather than every other year. RMU is somewhat small, and they'd have to ramp up to 63 scholarships. But Monmouth did the exact same thing to gain membership to the Big South, with the exact same "small school/NEC scholarship level" issue RMU would have.

    Re: RMU to the MVFC?

    Wait for it...Wait for it...RMU Football has a better chance of landing in the Patriot League than MVFC.
    LMAO....just seeing how quickly individuals will crush RMU on how they will never be good enough for the Patriot league.

    If the NEC said "see ya" much like they did Monmouth, RMU would probably go Independent and up their scholarships to 63 in hopes of landing in a larger conference.
    Does the MVFC make sense for RMU Football, not today. They would have to upgrade their their facilities big time and get to 63 scholarships within one year. Then get back to winning and perhaps a conference like MVFC would extend an invite to RMU.

    Precisely. Now, which "larger football conference" has other Horizon League members in it at present? Gee, can't think of any...

    Re: RMU to the MVFC?

    Ok, so...here's just a couple of problems with the argument as I see it:

    1. RMU is probably WAY down the list of potential Horizon League replacements. I see either or both of the IN schools (IUPUI and...IDKWTF-Fort Wayne) getting invited before RMU. I think we'd even see someone like an Ohio Valley school more likely to get invited before RMU.

    2. The MVFC is under no obligation to take a team just because they don't have a home. We don't care if you have to leave your football conference if you want to join the Horizon. That literally matters less than 0 to us.

    3. Most people think the MVFC is borderline too big as it currently stands (with the future addition of UND), as well as also not liking having a team as far east as YSU anyway. Now we're going to bring in another team....a private school...further east than Youngstown...with no history with any of the other MVFC schools...and half the enrollment of the next smallest MVFC school?

    No...just.....no.

    Monmouth to the CAA. You heard it here first. We have to lock up that New Jersey market.

    JMU and UR simply don't have enough Jersey students and Monmouth will be the deal maker.

    I can respect ST_Lawson's answer because he actually has a rationale. This one, though...

    Re: RMU to the MVFC?

    If (and that is a big If) RMU gets an invite to join the Horizon League, I think the most likely scenario is exactly what Stony Brook and Monmouth did when they left the NEC ... Big South associate member for football.

    RMU football isn't going MVFC or Pioneer. They aren't getting an invite from the Patriot or Colonial either.

    I doubt they get the Horizon invite based on the sports they sponsor. BobbyMo doesn't sponsor baseball and the Horizon is on the verge of losing AQ status in that sport.

    Re: RMU to the MVFC?

    Oh, and...

    4. If the MVFC were (for some insane reason) bringing in another school or two or 8 or whatever, RMU would be WAAAAY down the list of schools we'd try to bring in. Here's just a partial list of schools that we'd be shooting for first (in rough order of "likelihood"):
    Murray State (since it still seems possible that they could get a MVC invite maybe next year if things work out...the other MVC schools in the MVFC could use their pull to convince the MVFC to extend an invite to Murray State for football too)
    Eastern Illinois
    SEMO
    Eastern Kentucky
    Central Arkansas
    North Alabama
    Northern Colorado
    Literally any other OVC school
    Convince Drake to put $ into football scholarships
    Northwest Missouri State
    Pittsburg State
    MN State-Mankato
    MN-Duluth
    UW-Whitewater
