    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.
    You’re very much in the right here the OVC really isn’t ideal for UWGB but if they go scholarship football there’s not a lot of options for them realistically speaking for football. Pioneer wouldn’t be bad but even then the east coast schools might stir up problems. There isn’t an ideal situation for GB in FCS in the current landscape.

    Eh, just go straight to FBS and play in Lambeau. The B1G would have a fit.

    I never said Green Bay wasn’t out of the footprint. I brought up EIU because I looked it up to see how far away they were. I really had no idea where the two schools were in relation to each other.

    it's 5 trips per decade. the football trip isnt the issue.

    the issue is whether the existing OVC teams would be able to compete with a startup program.

    We know that EIU likes to duck tough competition so they'd probably support a GB for JSU trade-off

    For football. What about the rest of the sports. Those sports aren't free.
