Not unlike the mutation of an amoeba, the reshaping of Division II conferences continue as schools ponder league affiliation. The latest news has the University of Central Oklahoma and Northeastern State (Okla.) potentially moving to the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA).
The departure of UCO and Northeastern would leave the Lone Star with 11 schools.
And, along these lines, word has it the Lindenwood and Nebraska-Kearney are also potential new members of the MIAA, which would give that league 16 teams. Lindenwood, a member of the NAIA, will become a full-fledged NCAA Division II institution in 2013-14. UNK is currently a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletics Conference (RMAC).
It's great to be a Maverick.
