    Missouri Valley discussion

    Assuming Creighton leaves for the Big East...
    - Denver and Belmont appear to be the frontrunners to replace Creighton.
    - Loyola (Chicago) would get consideration.
    - Oral Roberts would be a long shot.

    MVC officials plan to visit Valpo, UIC, Loyola (Chicago), and UMKC.

    I'd go with Valpo, I think. ... imo, Denver has weak fan support.

    I would lean Duke. Travel costs are higher but it is worth it for a program of that quality.

    UIC from the Horizon to the Valley per Green Bay Press-Gazette writer:
    http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/...nclick_check=1

    It doesn't surprise me that the Valley went for the Chicago market. Apparently their hope is to open up Chicago to MVC recruiting. The Valley is made up of a bunch of small towns.

    The MVC may target Loyola and Valpo, too.

    It is being reported that Loyola (Chicago) will be Creighton's replacement, not UIC.

    Not that it matters to us but I think that would hurt an already struggling DePaul program. A program that in the late 70's and early 80's was top-notch.

    Tulane would be a nice fit for the Missouri Valley Conference. They fit that "metro" profile nicely, and the Green Wave could probably build a very nice basketball program if they weren't wasting so many resources on a losing football program.

    Loyola is a good fit. I think UIC would do well also.
