New Mexico, Colorado St and Hawaii are the only 3 MWC schools that meet the minimum requirements to join the PAC 12, CSU wont get in because Colorado is already there. Hawaii needs about 1.5 million more people, and New Mexico would need a million people to move there to make it. New Mexico is one of the strangest situations there is. Their border state neighbors Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas are booming with population growth while they move forward at a snail pace. Air Force would normally be a great candidate; but not for PAC. UNLV and SDSU are non-starters. Wyoming would need an oil boom that brought 10 million people. Boise St has less of a chance than Idaho. Nevada--I don't know enough about them.

Not sure which is less credible: MWC to PAC or Big Sky to MWC?


Neither are going to happen.

Totally agree. Besides, if the MWC got hit that hard you would see the MWC/AAC merger finally happen.

The Cal State schools will never be in the PAC-12. Cal and UCLA will make sure of it.

The MWC would go after Texas schools first

UTEP, UTSA, TxSt, UNT

UTEP for sure should be in the MWC. Zero doubt about that.

I would assume UTEP would be the most likely replacement as its close to NM, and shares a history with every single MWC school.

Cheers!
