WIU is in a tough spot.
The state of Illinois leadership is incompetent and the state is hurting for money. With this virus debacle happening, many schools will close their doors in the coming years especially if "onlline" courses become more popular and kids are not on campus.
Probably would be a very good thing for future students if a good portion of schools would close down. More competition for students might mean lower tuition rates, which is a good thing for students.
Hopefully, WIU can weather this storm and stay D1.
