After Toledo and Buffalo join the AAC,
NDSU/SDSU both join the MAC,
Caruso departs to replace fired PJ Fleck,
3M agrees to sponsor all players thru NIL,
New coach Mike McCarthy takes the team to MVFC with an eye toward the Big20.
So, maybe two years.

I could see St. Thomas moving to scholarship FCS football. They’ve come to the PFL and really have been dominant. I live near Marist so I follow and attend PFL games, but usually, when teams do well they look to move up as Mercer and Campbell have done in recent years.

I’d like to see them stay in the PFL—-but college conference realignment is blowing up
