      You'll have a lot of issues with C-USA teams agreeing to move to the WAC because while both are mid majors, the C-USA is on a different level in both football and basketball.
      I agree that adding the remaining WAC schools would just bring down C-USA. The only team I think that would fit in would be La Tech. Their football and basketball are on the rise. The rest of the WAC is just bleh.

      The two best ideas are to either have the WAC schools go independent or combine with the Sun Belt. Sure, it would stretch geographically but I don't think for that long. If and when the Big East expands, they really have no one to grab from except C-USA(East Carolina, Memphis, UCF) and possibly the MAC (Temple again). If any time were to leave C-USA then they could bring in Troy from the Sun Belt and possibly MTSU. All of this is pure speculation, though.

        The Sun Belt already extends to Denver in basketball so why not extend out to the Pacific.

          Completely true and if the MWC expands with those three teams then I see no reason for the Sun Belt and WAC to combine forces and form "Team Mediocre"!

              I feel like I should do this... TitansCJftw meet Punctuation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punctuation

              Now that we've accomplished that let's move on... Yes, I agree. ECU would be my first target if I were to expand the Big East. Their football team is perpetually solid and, like you said, they have great attendance. They also fit in the geography of the Big East and will give them a foothold in the southern US.

              I have numerous conference realignments and nearly all of them having ECU join the Big East. However, it will be a long time coming and I feel not until the basketball only colleges of the Big East separate themselves form their own conferences will we see the Big East expand.

              However, this thread is about the Mountain West expanding. ECU does not fit at all into the Mountain West, and why should they? They would skew the conference geographically. The points you made were valid but not in consideration to the MWC. Nevada, Boise St, and Fresno St are the best teams, outside of Tulsa and Houston, geographically for a conference that is situated in the Rocky Mountains, not a team east of the Appalachians.

                  None of those California schools have football programs though if that's what you were trying to get at. There are only 10 D-II and up football programs in California. btw Irvine is a UC not a CSU.

                      To be honest, I wish there was a way to drop San Diego State and add a team like Houston.

                        There are plenty of scenarios and opinions, but I think we can all agree that the BCS and D-IA football needs a shakeup in general.

                          Most definitely. The only conference I think is good is the SEC. The Pac 10 is solid too.
