    With the South Division adding Wichita Falls in 2020-21 I'm assuming some division realignment will be done o/w the South will have 8 teams.

    I'd expect Topeka's the most likely to move to another division, being the farthest north of teams in the South Division they're closer to some teams in the Midwest Division than some teams in their current division.

    IMO, with regular season play focused on divisional match-ups, an 8-team South Division would be ideal for balanced scheduling as well as for seeding in the first two rounds of the playoffs to determine Robertson Cup participation. So I see no particular motivation to split off Topeka or any other South team, unless Topeka or another franchise moves.

    I wouldn't expect much in terms of realignment other that Wichita Falls being added to the South. I don't think Topeka is moving divisions anytime this summer.
