https://kwsn.com/podcasts/sports-talk-wi...sibility/#

The first 13 minutes is about the decision to move the conference basketball tournament (and then the SL headquarters) to Sioux Falls. Then he talks about the state of the conference at 13:40. At 14:00 talks about PFW likely leaving at some time. At 15:25 talks about WIU. At 16:20 talks about the Illinois schools in general. At 17:00 he is asked about a 10th team to the SL. He mentioned at 17:40 it would be nice to have another soccer team.
At 18:50 he talks about UMKC: he is clear that UMKC is welcome back (they do have a soccer team, their sports are aligned with the SL, he says there is no hard feelings between SL and UMKC). To my ears he sounds pretty "gleeful" at the prospect of a UMKC return to the SL. I think the red carpet is out for the Roos. Of course, he speaks in generalities, nothing specific at this time.
At 21:50 he talks about the possible entrance of Augustana (they are in the midst of studies and need to decide about certain sports, ie, football).

I listened to this and he said they would welcome back UMKC, but that they had a new AD and a new Chancellor and he had not talked to them. He also mentioned, in a related topic, the fact that there is a $1 million exit fee for any schools that decide to leave. IUPUI paid that fee. UMKC would pay that fee if they joined and then left. UMKC in the past has indicated interest in the MVC, but the MVC has not shown the same interest back.

PFW would like to leave for the Horizon, as everybody knows, but the Horizon apparently is not interested in expansion at this time. If PFW left, the Summit would drop down to five baseball and 5 men's soccer schools. So adding Augustana would at least bring a baseball school. He did not seem to know if the Presidents were on-board with the idea. A fifth Dakota school has its advantages and disadvantages.
