    UWGB in early discussions about football addition

    I know this originally came up back in November but I have people telling me they’ve had continued discussions about starting a D1 football team and possibly scholarships as well depending on how the study on the matter goes. 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.

    Good for Green Bay. While we're at it, they need an in-state rival.

    If they need help on their uniform colors, here is an idea...

    Funnier than two other people

    Why would the OVC want them?

    But travel from Green Bay to Jacksonville, AL is an unstable creature.

    This. SEMO and EIU are already far enough.

    JSU and the Tennessee schools would **** themselves over a school from Green Bay. That's just a losing situation for everyone.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    It’s only 900 miles. And the conference doesn’t care what we like.

    All that aside, I don’t see them adding anybody unless someone leaves. The Murray to the MVC thing seems to be off the table.

    Pretty good add for either mvc or Summit leagues + MVFC. Or just MVFC.
