Nice addition, it is not a bad basketball conference. Uc is usually pretty good, Memphis and UConn both had bad years but is usually pretty strong, it seems SMU and Houston are improving and UCF had a very good year and it seems Temple gives everyone fits.

".. And we get to spend the night in a Marriot instead of a ... whatever. Some of these places (in the MVC) did not have the accommodations that we would prefer."
While WSU won't be playing in Loyola in Chicago, anymore, they're trading Normal, Cedar Falls, Carbondale, Peoria, and Terre Haute for Tampa, Orlando, Cincinnati, Houston, Memphis, and Dallas.
He definitely seems to be excited about the change.
