    Just depends if you want to go Division 1 or not. It's a hell of a lot easier to do in a conference, any conference, than as an independent.
    Montana and all other Big Sky Teams are still D-I

    They are in a separate half. FCS and FBS

    But ya, the theory is that within the next 10 years the FCS will be gone but i doubt that happening.

    I think the remaining WAC teams will be begging to find another conference.

    I could see Louisiana Tech trying to jump to the Sun Belt (Makes sense geographically)
    Utah State, Idaho, San Jose State will all try to join the MWC or will be forced into the Big Sky. With slight possibility of ending up in the Sun Belt or C-USA

    Thanks to bonekrusher for the sig

      The ACC must play one of the hardest schedules, because they have the second most players of any conference in the NFL. (though, our coaches are so dumb, their combined IQ is probably as high as a chimpanzee)

      The SEC is #1.
      **** her in da *****!

        Great move from both parts imo.

          Too bad Utah and BYU left... Would be an inasanely good conference with those two still there.

            They have an automatic qualifier, they just have to be Top 12 or Top 16 in the BCS (and above Big East/ACC/other big conference). Do we really want the Mountain West to be automatically in a BCS Bowl if they aren't in the Top 16 teams in the country? No.

              We don't want that to be the case with the Big East either but hey....don't look now. The ACC could get in that way too this year.

                I understand, but giving more AQs doesn't solve the problem.

                  My thinking is if the Big East doesn't improve and continue the mediocrity while the teams at the top of the MWC continue to be elite, strip the Big East's and transfer it. Might take more than one year, but the Big East doesn't even look like they have hope right now.

                    Big East isn't getting stripped of anything anytime soon.

                      There's already an actual numerical system that determines how this works.


                      Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.
