The realignment might not be a bad thing for Pearson/Muckalt/MTU. It appears that the shakeout will leave:
- B1GTen Conf
The Small Market Conf will probably consist of the remaining WCHA and CCHA teams, perhaps minus the Alaska schools, which the new league may not be able to afford.
Among that group, Pearson stands a VERY good chance of making the NCAA tourney in any given year. Among the old WCHA, it would have been almost impossible.
