For all the right reasons (06/11/10)
When I wrote my story yesterday on DePauw's choice to leave the SCAC and join the NCAC, I made a comparison to the major conference juggling that's currently going on in Division I athletics. On the surface, it's a valid comparison. DePauw has assessed its situation and decided the best choice is to join a different conference. It's a matter of the university's best interest...
