Conference changes
« on: May 01, 2008, 11:25:46 am »
I thought this would be a good place to summarize and discuss the impact of changes for D3hoops coming up next season.   What schools are changing conferences, what are the new conferences, who is moving into or out of 'Bumblin B' status, who is moving into or out of automatic qualifier status, who is coming into or out of provisional status...   hopefully it's a topic that can stimulate some interest during the summer month.

i'll be fine with this one change as long as the MIAA doesn't change their name so they don't disenfranchise their indiana schools anymore.

They've only got one Indiana school - Tri-State/Trine.  The CCI did not become the CCIW until there were two Wisconsin schools - Carroll (which has since left for the MWC) and Carthage (which was in Illinois then moved the whole freakin' campus to Kenosha).

Since there is now only one Wisconsin school, I think equity dictates that the CCIW becomes the CCIIIIIIIW. ::) ;)

My apologies for slighting St. Mary's. :-[  (If a school doesn't play football or men's bball, I tend to forget about them!)

These schools are in the "pipeline" for Fall 2008, and these schools should be in Pool B for 2008-09 and 2009-10.

Four schools in the UMAC move from re-classifying (MN-Morris) or provisional (Bethany Lutheran, Crown MN and Northwestern College) to full D-III membership.

These schools also join as full members:

Mount Aloysius College (AMCC).

Penn State Berks College (NEAC)

Purchase (Skyline)

Salem NC College (Women -- Independent)

Mount Mary (WI) College (Women -- Independent)

University of Maine at Presque Isle (Independent)

This adds 7 schools to Pool B for the Women and four schools for the Men.

These schools are scheduled to move the Year-3 Provisional Status.  (In Year-3, the games against Year-3 schools count in the calculations of the Regional Rankings.)

There are lots of changes in New England as a new conference is formed, and several more teams switch conferences.

Also, please check out the blog, Mid-Atlantic Shuffle.

From what I have heard Mount Mary (Wis.) has little chance of being granted full member status.  They likely won't meet the necessary criteria.  The rumor is they will be asked to repeat year 4 provisional, and if they can't do that they'll have to find another option.

I agree -- Mount Mary has done little to merit getting full membership.

How could anyone forget about St. Mary's? Its sports teams have one of the best nicknames in D3: the Belles.

I saw the news today about the flooding in Fort Kent, ME at the northern tip of the state.  They (UMaine-Fort Kent) are more remote than UMPI!
