I wonder if San Diego State had a hand in this? Maybe SDSU quietly told the Big West members, "You guys wanted SDSU before when we were leaving the MWC, and it might happen again someday if we find a place for our football team. If you want to have a chance to get SDSU in the future, then don't let UCSD into the Big West."
SDSU leadership really wanted the Big East-Big West thing to work out. Even after Boise pulled out they were looking for ways to make it work.

Sad to think SDSU wouldn't be above it all. Because they're SDSU.

And if you thought the politics between the Catholic schools back east were bad...

Since when is Cal Poly in northern California?

Absolutely not and they aren't even looking. So stop with the weird fantasy you have. None of those schools want to move up. And its Cal State East Bay, Cal Poly and UC Davis. Learn how those schools call themselves!

RE: Big West Rejects UC San Diego
The WAC could shape up to be an excellent California-centric league if they can attract UC San Diego and Azusa Pacific into the fold. That's 4 in SoCal and then destination road trips to places like:

Seattle
Phoenix (GCU)
Salt Lake area (Utah Valley)
Kansas City (UMKC) --for now, MVC dominos could change this
and mid major legacy school NMSU

Well, there are these schools for destination.
West Texas A&M-Canyon/Amarillo
UTPB-Odessa
Angelo State-San Angelo
Colorado State-Pueblo-
Metro State-Denver
Dallas Baptist
Western Washington-Bellingham
Washburn-Topeka
Drury-Springfield, Missouri
UAFS-Fort Smith
East Bay State-Hayward-San Francisco bay area.
San Francisco State


Cal. Poly, SLO is nowhere near southern California area. They are closer to the San Francisco area which is northern California.

I don't think you understood what I meant by destination city. I'm talking about big urban centers with easy access to airports and fertile recruiting territory. Most of those D2 schools do not meet that definition.

SLO is roughly four hours from LA and four hours from SF. I think they rather correctly think of themselves as being on the boundary between NorCal and SoCal.

But for the purposes of geographic balance when it comes to a CA athletics conference I think the best you can hope for is an LA-metro-based South and an everything-north-of-LA North.
