  • Oakland City

    It appears the Mighty Oaks are headed to NAIA. They posted on 01-17-20 two job openings on the NAIA Career Center site and stated "Oakland City University has applied to the NAIA and is waiting on possible approval and full membership in the Fall of 2020." This would mean them leaving D2 after the current Spring 2020 season.

    Is this because they couldn't find a conference to join?

      My guess is probably not. I don't know of a reason they could not have joined the GLVC or why they didn't try to be a co-founder of the G-MAC. Since their schedules were 95% non-NCAA opponents I have a feeling they were headed this direction for a while. When did they join D2?

        1990. They apparently gave up NAIA membership two years later.

          Good sleuthing. I looked but couldn't find anything, even on their own site.

            I have two sources for when they joined:

            https://web3.ncaa.org/directory/orgDetail?id=1278

            https://web1.ncaa.org/stats/StatsSrv/careersearch (at which can be found this pdf from their first D2 season: https://web1.ncaa.org/app_data/stats...University.pdf)

              Good info. It's a little crazy that Oakland City has been D2 that long. Out of curiosity I looked through their men's basketball schedules in the 90s and even then more than 50% of their games were non-D2.

                strange management at Oakland city. A former wbb coach left after he turned program around and wasn’t allowed to have a d2 qualifier schedule of 20 games. They recently fired the maker of rule the MBB coach/ad but replaced him on the coaching side with the swim coach from a d3.
