    3) UMKC is the middle of the road option. The are probably worse than Augie now but they have a higher ceiling and they are not as close and a Augie. They are not as good as Grand Canyon or NMSU but they are no where near as far away.

    It's like when you go the a ballgame do you-
    1) pay a lot to park close
    2) pay a little and have a middle distance walk
    3) park in the boonies for free and walk a long ways
    Option #3 saves you money.

    Short drive for me. Swinney is better than rattling around in the auditorium even though it's low end for D2. Retro mascot. What's not to like?

    Looks like UMKC left in the nick of time.

    Hopefully the Summit League can avoid the same fate. Grand Canyon would be a great addition provided they stay on the same track. New Mexico State would be welcome as well if the WAC folds. Also, the overtone of complete disdain for the Summit League in this article is hilarious.
