Stadium expansion for Missouri State is coming up after this year's season. New president sees football as a way to make the leap up in the world. Sun Belt has been talking with Missouri State for some time going back into the late 90's. The basketball program would have to take a hit in percepation and that is the biggest draw back among athletic department, alumni, and donors. But on the other side, they would win a lot more games and we have done pretty well in the Valley. But Creighton has one foot out the door from leaving the MVC, and the two peer schools in Illinois State and UNI are talking to the MAC. What we have heard it will be better to be with the MAC, Sun Belt types than it will be to stay in the Valley. Some changes are coming.
