    Relatively speaking, Lindenwood is okay financially. But talking from a traditional Lindenwood perspective, this would not be a wise move. Lindenwood has always prided itself on being a financially responsible and smart university. At one point, they were one of only two 4-year schools operating in the black.

    Enrollment has leveled off, just like it has for everyone, and the move to D2 proved to be more expensive than many in the organization where comfortable with.

    The move could happen one day sure, but I don't believe it will be within this decade.

    If this turns out to be true, I will be absolutely stunned. Every bit of information I've gotten points to this being a bogus report, so I have to go with that.
    Back in the rapid-growth Spellmann Days, he and LU athletics were trying to go from NAIA to DI. At one point LU, was trying to play NCAA DI men's and women's hockey, while playing in the HAAC for other sports even prior to a full move. A lot has changed since then, including three university presidents, numerous administrative changes, board member changes, and enrollment growth slowed some in the past few years. I think even a few years ago, the move to D2 was initially a stopping point/following the NCAA's rules to spend time as a full D2 member first; but since then I get the sense that LU coaches have enjoyed D2. Also as you noted, LU spent quite a bit more$$$ than expected to get to D2. Plus LU enjoys DI affiliation for women's hockey and volleyball and fairly strong success at D2 with a variety of sports.

    On the flip-side, maybe the “D2 as a stopping point” idea is still there behind closed doors of the administration (above coaching), also with new president/board members comes personal goals to make a mark on the university. The current/new president from IBM (big business world) might see the branding benefits of DI. Also, with the pandemic, there’s some indications that the NCAA is going to be more flexible with some rules. It’ll be interesting if they loosen restrictions on membership, as the pandemic may push some current DIs to expedite a move down to D2 (or even D3), and in theory, it could be an opportunity for a small number of D2 schools to expedite a move up.

      It would be a very bad move for any University to go DI now as we have seen how absolutely ridiculous this Govt hoax has been handled. Sheeple have bent over willingly giving up their freedoms over this joke. One would be very naive to not think this rogue Govt we have won’t do the same thing again very shortly. The economy is wrecked and the fallout hasn’t even scratched the surface. We will continue to print money bailing out bad institutions, Universities likely to be a part of that. Spending money on athletics is a falling knife now, unfortunately.

      QUOTE=SonOfMafia;n506740]USI was not financially stable enough, prior to Covid-19, to be able to afford going DI, now there is no way they are stable enough. It would be a big boost for them to go DI but Rochon had already helped put USI into a deficit and now I can't even imagine what the financials look like.

      USI has coaches and facilities that could handle the transition to DI but I don't know that the administration is in place to be able to handle it.[/QUOTE]

        Amen!!!! And the narrative the media wants the sheeple to follow is a false one! If a person will drop their political allegiance and dig a little deeper (Dont use Google, Yahoo or even Bing) they will see see evidence of an evil agenda that is not even close to being a conspiracy theory. There is so much false information and people are believing lies! How can a whole nation be duped? It happened in Germany and it can happen again.

          USI was already in the red financially, to the tune of $2,000,000+, before Covid-19 thanks to the lack of leadership from Alphabet Bennett at Robama...Covid-19 will cover up some of the numbers however the reality is USI is in a horrible financial position at this time.

          There is talk around campus that it is bad enough that people would not be surprised if the state puts USI under the umbrella of IU or Purdue. Alphabet started the downfall and Roboma will run the university into the ground...it's going to happen sooner rather than later...

            Give Libs enough time and the destruction they do is more powerful than an F5 Tornado.
