With the departure of Wichita State to the American and the addition of these 2 schools, the MVC will have 11 schools for the 2016-17 season.
The OVC will also have 11 members, if Murray State leaves; and the Horizon League will drop down to 9 members next year with the loss of Valpo.
CCSU fans are familiar with Valpo from our time in the Mid-Con.
Murray State (as most OVC schools) has a very similar history and profile to CCSU - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murray_State_University
http://www.news-leader.com/story/sports ... 101073106/The clock is ticking, and we should know any day now what the future carries for the Missouri Valley Conference.
We know Wichita State is gone, off to the American Athletic Conference, and Valley officials have made campus visits to Murray State, Valparaiso, Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Nebraska-Omaha.
We also know Saint Louis and Belmont have no interest in joining the league.
The only thing we're waiting on is the most important part — which schools will receive invites, and which will accept them.
