The Mid-Continent Conference has rebranded, changing its name to "The Summit League."
The new conference logo features a silver mountaintop. I can only assume that the Summit is a metaphorical summit, as the conference's members are located in Louisiana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, and Utah. Most of those states are not exactly known for their purple mountains' majesty.

The strange part in this game of conference musical chairs is that the conference now known as the Horizon League (formerly known as the Midwest Collegiate Conference) changed its name in 2001 largely as a result of being confused with the Mid-Con. Now the Mid-Con changes its name to Summit League alongside the former Midwestern Collegiate Conference that is now the Horizon League. Follow?

Now if only the MAC, MAAC, and MEAC could sort out their differences...or lack thereof.

I'm guessing it's actually named for Pat Summit. It reflects the conference's aspirations to one day produce a team that could beat the Lady Vols.

I think they just want to promote the peaceful sportsmanship that comes from participating in intercollegiate athletics.
