    Re: UWGB in early discussions about football addition

    Ideally GB would fit in the MVFC geographically but as far as the size of the school goes, they’d be the smallest in the MVFC by a decent margin. They’d be on par enrollment wise with a lot of the OVC schools. Travel is going to be an issue no matter where they end up being from the far north of Wisconsin where even Madison is about 2 hours away. I don’t think they’re going to pull a UNCC or UTSA and use FCS as a stop gap but I could see them being what we’re seeing with Kennesaw State right now. It all depends how they approach this.

    Just for reference, the Macomb campus of WIU only has ~400 more students (as of last fall) than UWGB does.

    Would the MVFC/Summit even want UWGB? If they do go scholarship and go to the Valley they wouldn’t be competitive right away but it would give them better chance at in state recruits that would go to the Dakota schools. Then again for non football sports they’re not that great of an athletics department asides from Women’s hoops in recent years. I don’t see any benefits for them to leave the Horizon in their other sports. If UWGB does start a program it wouldn’t be too crazy to see Parkside try to start in D2.

    Probably not, I was just commenting on the enrollment bit. At our current rate, we're going to be pretty close to them by next football season.

    One can only hope Nebraska will do the same and give Nebraska-Omaha a chance to think about bringing back football.

They’re looking at either OVC or Pioneer depending on if they go scholarship or not. Recent state law changes prevents Madison from having a say in the matter and I think it’d be a great thing to have another D1 football school in Wisconsin.

    Way back in the early to mid 90s they had some good men's basketball teams. UVA coach Tony Bennett played there (there was a point where he, the GB Packer and singer Tony Bennett were all in the GB airport at the same time)

    I don't see that happening. It cracks me up that Cheesehead Big Red fans think they're as passionate about their team as Husker Big Red fans. The Cheeseheads have the Packers, Brewers and Bucks. The Huskers have nothing else.

    You never know, it took us getting Evers in office for our change to happen. With the right administration anything can happen.
