    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.

    They would if we threatened to leave and go to the Big South.

    I don’t know if they’d beg us to stay. We are the southernmost school, so they’d save on travel if we left. Plus we are the bully in football.

    We seem to be a bully in most sports nowadays.

    With as many schools as are Tennessee, losing us and adding some school nobody has ever heard of in the Tundra sounds like a net loss for the OVC. Of course, like you said, they may not care. Which also wouldn't surprise me.

    Green Bay is 393 miles from EIU so I don’t see this happening.

    Re: UWGB in early discussions about football addition

    Geographically, the MVFC (or Pioneer if they want to go non-scholarship) make the most sense, although once UND is added in 2020, we'll be at 11 teams already. GB would be 12 and we're getting dangerously close to Big Sky-levels of ridiculousness.
    I assume in either of those cases, they'd probably keep their non-football sports in the Horizon League (where their women's basketball team has been really good lately).

    Re: UWGB in early discussions about football addition

    The reason they’re looking at OVC for Football apparently is because they are of the belief that they are too small a school for the MVFC and that the MVFC is already “too big” to take them. That leaves the OVC with EIU being a reasonable travel partner but they’ve also said that the OVC really isn’t ideal either. There really isn’t a good option for them to be a scholarship team and they’re considering starting as an independent if the NCAA would allow it.

    I guess you must be one of those people James Spann was talking about a couple weeks ago who have never seen a map. Let me show you some numbers before you continue this path of acting like JSU is way out of the OVC footprint compared to EIU.

    SIUE may be close but SIUE doesn't play football. EIU's closest football school is SEMO at 201, JSU is 203 miles from TTU.

    What a difference.

    JSU is an average of 329 miles away from OVC football schools and 334 from all schools.

    EIU is an average of 302 miles away from football schools 289 from all schools.

    About 30 miles... What a difference.

    But this thread isn't about JSU or EIU in the OVC footprint, it's about Green Bay.

    If you take the geographic center of the conference using longitudes and latitudes of all the OVC schools averaged together:

    EIU is 210 miles away from center as the crow flies.
    JSU is 270 miles away from center as the crow flies.
    Green Bay is 560. (367 miles from EIU)

    What. A. Difference.

    So, if you're going to take exception to me stating Green Bay would be way TF out of the OVC footprint, you may want to consult a map first.
