Ok, so the Midwest Collegiate Conference (MCC) changes to the Horizon League in 2001 and now the best the Mid Continent Conference can do is become the Summit League? Hope they didn't pay too much for creativity on that marketing consulting contract!

It's a shame IPFW went all out and is displaying Mid-Con flags, banners and decorations all over campus. They did so to impress those from Mid-Con before they were even picked to join the conference.

Guess my hard earned tuition money will have to help pay to replace all that Mid-Con stuff with ones boasting the new "Summit League" name.

What a shame!

You folks at IPFW should be happy to have IU and PU in your dinky cowtown without whining about some flags.

Ironically enough, the Midwestern City/Midwest Collegiate Conference (MCC) in part changed its name to distinguish itself from the Mid-Continent (a conference from which it imported its core membership). MCC--MCC; Horizon--Summit...
