    Lol, we have been over this. Augie would be competitive in nearly every sport and a handful would actually be Summit Leagues Champs immediately.

    UST is going to have a rough start at the least.
    Depends on the sport. Football will be rough but I can see men’s and women’s basketball succeeding right away.

      I don’t care what people say or what Auggie’s intentions are, this is a really BAD look for the Vikings.

        Why? Because they are trying to solidify their conference and picked a much larger school located in the Twin Cities? Augie will be there eventually, plenty of movement left in that conference. Unfortunate, but it will happen

          Because Augie made their intentions of moving up to D1 before St. Thomas did and they got picked over Augie which is located where the Summit league HQ’s are. I agree Augie will get there but looking back, I think they made their announcement a little prematurely Imo.

            I believe their announcement was "by 2030" so they've got time.

              Bottom line is that yes, getting rejected is never a good thing. I don't know a ton of people that get rejected for anything and think/feel, "Yeah, that's a good look for me."

              That being said, if this gets the administration to reassess how this was handled, it's possible they will adjust things moving forward and pursue future options. Maybe it would be the Summit again, or maybe they'd switch their style up, show that they can provide more value, and pursue a different conference or something. Then again, I can't imagine the Horizon League is desperate to take a school that the Summit rejected (Summit fans would have a heyday with that one), but as NSU4LIFE noted, they still have plenty of time to achieve this goal if 2030 is the plan.

                  Augustana is much better suited at D2. Embrace it.

                    Eh... I think we'll have a better chance at staying relevant long-term if we eventually make the jump.

                      Interesting. I'd enjoy reading a Mr Mr long essay on that subject.

                      I've been awake for two hours with indigestion. Went to a benefit in Buffalo Lake last night for one of my former football players who has late stages of ALS. Pulled pork was delicious but I'm paying for it now. Tossed and turned, went outside for a walk, finally decided to get on here.

                        Please refrain from posting a video clip of indigestion. I’ll take your word for it.

                            • For those interested, Midco will be doing a one-time airing of Augie's 2016 National Championship game this Thursday evening. It was a really fun game, especially if you're an Augie fan.

                              https://mobile.twitter.com/GoAugie/s...72837242245122

                              Augie's August concludes Thursday at 7 p.m. Tune-in to watch @AugieMensBball claim the 2016 National Championship only on @MidcoSN.

                              • Despite Augie being his first offer, I fear Tanner Te Slaa is becoming increasingly unlikely to end up a Viking after garnering an offer from Northern Iowa yesterday...
