Still think they're going to the NSIC or the WIAA, but hopefully Douple is monitoring this, and talking. For some reason the WAC seems much more proactive in pulling strings in order to stay alive.
I was surprised that the enrollment topped 10,000 this past year. I am not surprised that little Augsburg somewhere nearby and St. Olaf voted them out. St Thomas is definitely on a different path. A direct path to the The Big East seems overly ambitious, especially if they bypass Summit when campus is located on Summit Avenue.
