Question I may have for Sac. St is, would they consider gong to the WAC in all sports and keep the Big Sky as a football affiliate? The WAC is showing to be a much better conference than the Big Sky.
Sac. St provides another large metro city with easy travel to the rest of the conference.

Hypothetically if we got a FB only deal with the BSC I would like to think the WAC would be a target. Aside from Portland State (another school in a large metro area) we have nothing in common with anyone in the BSC besides being an FCS school west of the Mississippi.

I've heard people claim that we have forged rivalries with some of the BSC members but that is not true. People only care about BSC opponents when it's the top programs that come to town Weber State (hoops), Montucky (hoops and fb) get good crowds; none of which come close to Causeway matchups.

The WAC would give us an in-state rival in Bako, and short cheap direct flights to large metro areas on the West Coast. Throw in the fact that the hoops product is better than the BSC and it's a no brainer to go with WAC over BSC if that were ever a possibility.

Personally, I'd love it for Sac St to be a full WAC member. I could ride the train up, catch a game or so, visit my (CSUB nursing alum) niece who lives in the area, and visit Castle Air Museum, on the way back home! I kind of have a soft spot for Sac St.

A little semi-tangent / interesting fact I just thought of. The San Joaquin ("Central") Valley has five D-I schools. They are ALL in different conferences as full members.
