Open question to the SCAC intelligentsia...

In which sports does JWU-Denver really help?

In which sports is JWU-Denver, not a benefit?  (Women's soccer?)

What sports that JWU-Denver offers help with the strategic advancement of the SCAC?  M&W Lacrosse?

What sports might an SCAC fan/president/AD/conference administrator want JWU-D add?

Easy answer to everything:

- Easy travel partner for Colorado College
- Stability on numbers in what is always a fluid situation in Division III

The SCAC would like to get to ten schools.   Now that CC has a travel partner they can try to find someone else, I have no idea who it would be given that the ASC schools seem quite happy where they are, but they're on record as looking for someone after JWU-D.   Maybe they can turn another NAIA school. 

Back to basketball ... an unexpected turn of events with formerly 1-loss (in SCAC play) Schreiner losing both at CC and UDallas this weekend.  They have to win one of two against Trinity to clinch the #1 seed in the SCAC tourney at CC.   If Trinity should win both (and UDallas beat CC) you would see a three-way tie and I have no idea how it would be broken (there's a way, just don't know the conference tiebreaker).

I have thought about the configuration of the SCAC and ASC too.

I wish that the SCAC would gain enough schools to sponsor football.  In my role as fantasy czar of D-3 football in this part of the country (LOL  ::) ), I would trade Concordia Texas to the SCAC in exchange for at least 2 more of the current SCAC schools adding football (Schreiner and Centenary?). That would give a 2nd Pool A conference in this part of the country.

As for the SCAC, mission and vision?  CTX seems the closest of them all.
I do not think that LeTU likes playing sporting events on Sunday.
I think that the SCAC has cherry-picked the ones that they needed most.

Might Belhaven be a candidate? Unfortunately, Millsaps moved to the SAA. They would have made great travel partners.

NAIA?
Texas Wesleyan plays football, but I think that they believe that they need scholarships.
SAGU seems a better fit in the ASC.
Wayland Baptist?  Don't think so.
Nor University of the Southwest?
University of Houston-Victoria?  Nope.
University of St Thomas in Houston... Not sure.
Our Lady of the Lake in San Antonio?  Maybe.

Ozark university(Arkansas) going from the asc to scac makes sense, they are already an affiliate in 1 sport and would give them 10 with centenary as a travel partner. The college of the ozarks (Missouri) leaving NAIA might also work. Given their endowment of 500m they could afford travel. The SAA could also jump to 10 with them and beara, c of o would be a good travel partner for Hendrix.
