Yeah. I think this was all about travel for the non-football sports.My guess is that it may have something to do with travel. In the OVC, their furthest road trip for football would likely be to Tennessee Tech, which is just over an 8 hour drive from Macomb. It's nearly 10 hours to both of the North Dakota schools in the MVFC.
It sucks that they’re leaving probably the best FCS football conference, but this likely makes the most sense from a budget standpoint.
