    Akron debating a drop to FCS - MVC?

    Would the MVC be a possible landing spot for Akron?

    The MVFC does NOT need more teams in Ohio.

    ****ing right it is.

    They are the main reason UNI has to play NDSU, ISUr and SDSU all on the road in the same year and the reason the rotation is set up that UNI will amost never miss NDSU, SDSU, SIU or ISUr on our 2 year off rotation.

    They are also the only team that doesn't share any other sports conference with any other team. ISUb bitches about the travel but the Dakotas but they at least share a conference with UNI, SIU, ISUr and MSU

    Now, should Akron really want to consider this move (and I really....really doubt it) it should be explored.

    I can't imagine it is a possibility with the new stadium they just opened a few years ago

    If you're bitching about geographic footprint, get over it. The Big Sky manages just fine.

    YSU is a special breed. They came in expecting to dominate and they have been average at best in their best years. That's led to them not liking the travel

    Because the Big Sky needed to hedge against the resurgence of the WAC doesn't mean everyone else needs to follow the same blueprint.

    Would be a homecoming for Akron. I grew up watching them play against the likes of Austin Peay, YSU, MTSU etc. in the 80's. With 25,000+ students I just figure they'd be a better fit for the MVC. Akron is strong in basketball...football, not so much.

    This is a sobering reality that many G5 schools stick their heads in the sand to avoid seeing. That said it'll never happen, just another example of a university faculty and an athletic department arguing over who wastes more money.
