Now comes the tricky part: finding a date for a site visit.
Word is getting a Mid-Con committee to conduct on-campus tours of NDSU, SDSU and IPFW is not an easy task. Aligning the schedules of presidents, athletic directors, senior women’s administrators and other folks is very difficult in such a short period of time.
The Mid-Con is targeting the site visits this summer. That’s an aggressive timetable in the world of league expansion. In the Big Sky, the Council of Presidents picked only Northern Colorado to visit in a fall 2004 meeting. The site visit didn’t happen until the spring of 2005.
