Temple is not in the MAC their in the Atlantic 10<quoted text>
You are correct about the non-football part, however, the MAC does have a football-only school in Temple, so there is precedent, there.

Temple plays basketball in the Atlantic 10 but does play football in the MAC.

I'd love to see IUPUI in the Horizon League, but I highly doubt Butler would let it happen. I'm not suggesting they're necessarily worried about IUPUI cutting into their fan base right now. But over time, it wouldn't be as beneficial for Butler as it would be for IUPUI.
Besides, the more immediate need is a new basketball arena. Until IUPUI gets that, they're going to remain a Summit League team. That isn't necessarily a bad thing because they'll always be about one or two wins away from the Big Dance. The downside, however, is it's a one-bid conference and you run the risk of getting shut out of postseason play altogether...even when you deserved a low NIT seed.

But the thing is most of our schedule was played against our conference which has never been "all that". We beat UMass by alot and they ended up with a second seed in the NIT. We've shown we can compete in conference play well as well as against nationally ranked teams like Marquette and UMass. Admitedly we lost to Marquette, but it was a very good game. We had a high RPI for a reason, and we ranked high in national stats for a reason too, so the point is no matter how you really look at it we got gipped.

I'd really have to agree with you. Sadly i'm having to transfer out of IUPUI to go to PU, but that is only because Purdue is one of only like 20 universities in the nation with Nuclear Engineering degrees. If IUPUI had that degree program i would definately want to stay and continue being a Jag, but sadly that isn't the case. I'll probably still try and be part of the Jagband and support the Jags even though Purdue may make it a little difficult getting here on time lol.
