Inside the Den: athletics vice president talks about Lindenwood conference switch


The guys invite Lindenwood intercollegiate athletics vice president Brad Wachler to discuss why the school departed from the NCAA Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association conference, switching to the Great Valley Lakes conference.

Wachler explains Lindenwood left the MIAA conference for inconvenient geographic locations of other schools and that the university was the last private institution left. Though MIAA is strong in football, Wachler said he thinks GLVC is strong in other sports.

Lacrosse and swimming and diving now are included with the GLVC conference, whereas MIAA does not offer those sports.
