NCAA Board approves Division I autonomy proposal--USA Today
Wright State president David Hopkins said that even though his school competes in the Horizon League, which isn't one of the five high-resources conferences, he did not believe it would be a death knell to its ability to compete.

"It was very clear we were defining autonomy in very careful ways, and we knew for our sister conferences had challenges and needs that were not apparent in what we do," Hopkins said. "We've learned how to live within our means and still provide an excellent experience and be part of the access to national championships."
