    If that’s correct, WI will be fascinating to watch what happens with the UW system schools. I wonder if they start talking with a Whitewater/Marquette/Oshkosh about starting a program/moving up divisions as a part of their study. At minimum I would think a couple of their DIII schools look at bumping up to DII.

    I don't drink anymore. I don't necessarily drink any less either, though.

    No news on Whitewater or Oshkosh going D2 but Parkside is having a study done as to if it’s feasible for them to start a program. UWM has a club team but I’m not sure there’s the infrastructure for a D1 school there like there is in GB. Marquette has said previously that football is not a sport that is on their mind right now because as they have the same issues as UWM, there’s nowhere for a stadium and they wouldn’t have a conference to go to for football.

    I'd add WIU as they are financially in a tough spot and going non-scholly would help them out with cost of travel for all sports immediately being a bus trip (UWGB would be 402 miles, longest trip). This would get them to 8 and if they wanted to get to 9 consider Augustana and they would have a full football schedule.

    -The Sconie schools are all travel partners

    -WIU would partner with the Sconie schools as well as Drake (215) and to a lesser extent, Butler (260 miles)

    -While Augustana would be an outlier in the conference, if getting to 9 is the goal, they would be a potential add and considering only 4 schools would travel there each year, (Augustana is not hard up for money so they would be more than fine with the travel), they could make them a solid offer.

    -Each of these schools will be getting offers from B1G almost every year to play for a money game that would cover most travel expenses for the year (smaller amounts due to bus travel) and most likely a smaller money game from the MVFC/MAC and then they could buy a D2 game from the GLIAC/GLVC to give these schools 5 home games a year or try to get 6 and buy a 2nd home game from the NEC/Pioneer for those more "endowed", even on years where there is no 12 game season.

    Add Parkside to that list too if they start a football team. Solid D2 program already that could make the D1 jump in all other sports.
