Losing JSU and EKU would help the OVC. They get rid of a huge geographical outlier in Jax State. Looking at the Wikipedia map, EKU is a bit out there although they still have Morehead further out for Olympic sports.
Getting WIU would be good for them. They would have seven football members so you have three home/away games every year. It gives them ten for Olympics so you have an 18 game basketball schedule and play everyone twice, giving you a true regular season champ. And WIU is right in the middle of the footprint.
