OVC expansion
I certainly hope the conference doesn't expand. 10 or 12 is a perfect number for a one-bid conference such as the OVC. The more members means that the NCAA credits are more watered-down and I can't see the conference going beyond 12.

In my opinion if, for instance, Jax State moves to the Sun Belt then I'd much rather the OVC add NKU than any school from Tennessee. First NKU has more media pull, I live in Cincinnati and can vouch for this first hand, better facilities, and is closer to EKU and Morehead. Secondly, when NKU was turned down for the conference their president went to the media claiming that the "no" votes came from school presidents who worried that NKU basically had too much $ and put other schools at a competitive disadvantage. These presidents voted for Belmont which has all the things NKU has.

I'm glad that ETSU is adding football and I wish them luck. Hopefully you'll be playing in the FCS playoffs and I hope it's as a member of the SoCon and not the OVC. Nothing personal but the conference needs to look north rather than south.
