A few more details:
We have four perennial NT contenders (Otterbein, Heidelberg, Wilmington, Baldwin-Wallace) and one team that has usually made the PI, but made the NT Elite 8 two seasons ago (Fisk). The coach at Mount Union is still fairly new, but it looks like he has the team on the rise.
I am not going to lie...the previous coach at the open team (Maryville) was awful, so whoever takes it over is in for a total rebuild. But we have a lively discussion board, and one more good team could take the conference to the next level.
