As I'd posted a couple weeks ago, the MWC/C-USA merger wasn't looking good and each conference was likely going to expand through other options.
MWC just snagged Utah State and San Jose State from the WAC.
C-USA just swiped UTSA, which will join them instead of the WAC.
Starting in 2013, the league will be the following 10 teams:
San Jose State
Unless the WAC can add someone, that drops them to 5 football teams. Minimum to have a conference is 6.
Not done yet, but it's about done.

What is going to happen once CSU leaves?
Everybody hates you, Everybody wishes that you were dead
Cuz Peter you suck, Peter you suck
Peter your music is ****ing terrible
Peter you suck, Peter you suck
Peter you don't do anything of value, Peter you suck
Write some music but instead you sit and write these bulls**t songs
It's so self loathing go see a psychiatrist
I hate the psychiatrist
Well go see one anyway
I don't like the psychiatrist
You need to go see one
See a psychiatrist
I'm not going
I wonder if Boise State/SDSU want back in
With the additional expenses for travel and the disconnect with the conference schools being all the way across the country I doubt that Boise and SDSU stay there in the long run.
It will be interesting to see what happens to the remainding WAC schools. Do they expand with some FCS schools (Big Sky) moving up? Do they merge with or steal from the Sun Belt?
With the new finanicial world of major college football the differences between the haves and have nots has never been greater. Tough decisions for some schools to decide if they want to pretend to be big time while being whipping boys for the major conferences or step down to a lower profile where they have a real chance to compete.
According to rn CSU is a lock for the Big XII once their stadium is built
Wait - is the WAC dead or just reborn?
"Right now Alec Burks is using and abusing this Texas defense"
From private sources I know (has been in the CU AD in the past, knows people in all CO departments) the WAC is almost dead, and Denver is looking to jump to the West Coast Conference instead of their planned WAC move. This makes me happy because I'd get to see my alma mater playing in Denver.
damn. just from an academics perspective, i feel horrible for air force. look at that lineup of craptastic safety schools.
air force ought to try to go independent, rather than associate itself with this list of the feeble and infirmed.
AFA to the Big12? I would think that they would be a better fit than CSU
