I'm not sure how serious you were about the "build up a smaller conference" idea, but selfishly, I just made the move up to DI in Naismith in the Summit League, and would be very happy to have more good human coaches in there. Lots of different types of programs to choose from: A B- prestige program with a few human-recruited players still around and 4 open scholarships (Stetson), A C- program with 4 open scholarships that recruits right in the ACC's backyard (Campbell), and several other rebuilds. Nothing as "exotic" as Alaska, Hawaii, or PR, but a fair amount of geographic diversity in the conference (open programs in FL, IL, IN, NC, OK, MO, LA, and MI). Hard to see why any of this would be appealing (I took it because I was ready to try my hand at DI and this was what I was qualified for), but if something there sounds interesting, I'd be glad to have you in the conference (especially a fellow Wooden DIII coach!).
