Uh oh. Bellarmine goes NCAA DI

From what I've heard they have no plans on cutting the program.  It's going to be tough to recruit high level guys due to the 4 year post season ban.  As far as conference, the MAC or Southern could be a good fit as an affiliate member.  Hopefully they last through my sons last 3 years. They put a ton of money (they purchased an old church a couple of miles from campus) into a wrestling facility, that currently serves no other purpose.  I can’t see them cutting the program.

My guess would be they go either SoCon or EIWA, but ya no plans on cutting the program. 

Just heard that they will be wrestling as an independent, at least initially, and have been assured the program will not be cut.

I received the same confirmation today. 

 

Would love to see them wrestle The Citadel in the Southern Conference!

Well from my understanding there isn't really such thing as "independent" in wrestling. While their are ineligible for the postseason I suppose it's fine but they need to get attached to a conference at some point. I would personally go with SoCon where programs like UTC are but the MAC would also work

From what I hear it’s definitely SoCon. I’m just going to enjoy this one year of D2 with some pretty good incoming freshmen and couple good upperclassmen. Hopefully they can make a little noise
