Yeah that's a good point --- a whole new set of challenges.
Plus, with the fact that the team will not be eligible for postseason for a while, I would think that recruiting may be difficult unless there is a lot of scholarship $$$ available right away.

Remember, there are limits to scholarship money. In DII, they can split up scholarships (DI basketball and football, splitting up a scholarship is not allowed - full-ride only) and that can mean a lot of creative things to get recruits in. So there is a max number of scholarships given in total (10 full-rides - making up that number, don't know it for sure) and they can be given out in any size up to full-ride needed as long as it totals the max.

Recruiting will be tough. Next year the programs will still be competing in DIII (with no scholarships available anyway). The first recruits coming on campus will be the following year which, as long as everything is on course and they have been officially welcomed to DII, will be the first of the four-year transition process ... and like in DIII, they won't be eligible for NCAA postseasons until they complete those four years ... ASSUMING nothing goes wrong and a year or two in the process is not repeated.

You got it in one, Dave:  exactly 10 scholarships to be divided up as the school sees fit.    http://www.ncaa.org/about/division-ii-partial-scholarship-model

Meia Daniels Netter has resigned from HPU.  I am sad to see her leave.

Here's an interview I did a couple weeks ago with Coach Hassell about her transition from Texas-Tyler to HSU. She also talks about Tyler's potential transition to D2.
