Who should the Big Sky try to get for twelve.
Maybe NMSU AS NAU's travel partner.
The good BSC travel partners meaning one flight and a short bus trip are.
EWU- Idaho fly to Spokane.
Montana-Montana St
Idaho St - Weber St

Not sure about Southern Utah - Northern Colorado or Portland St-Sacramento St.

I read a list of the top 100 basketball programs a few years back Weber St was higher than NMSU.
I know the WAC had a better year but it is unstable. NMSU would be allowed to stay FBS Idaho was.
Don't argue that NMSU will say no it's beside the point.
Instead offer a different team for twelve .
The title of this thread is who should the Big Sky try to get not who they will get.

Sac State and Portland State are already travel partners, as well as NAU and Southern Utah. If NMSU were to come in, they'd be UNC's.

I don't think they go to 12, but rather shed UNC to the Summit to be at 10.
Unless Sac. St wanted to go to the WAC for a much easier travel situation.

As said before, the Montanas, Idaho and EWU will find a way into the Summit when the IP's and W Ill leave.

But Sac St and Portland St going to the WAC would make the WAC a largely west coast league with good travel partners. The Big Sky needs to be at 10 or 9. Football can stay big or start a WAC league with Cal Poly, UC Davis, Asuza Pacific and UTRGV.

Northern Colorado should admit that the move to D1 has been a disaster and drop back to D2.

That wouldn't be bad Las Cruces or El Paso to Denver .
I'm guessing Sacramento to Portland is a flight.
Southern Utah to NAU is that bussable?

I vote for that but it involves several conferences and schools.
Without any other changes who should the Big Sky target is the question.

UNC to the Summit also makes sense it involves another conference though.

Actually it is. It's a 4 1/2 hr drive going north around the Grand Canyon. Driving to Las Vegas and then up takes 6 hrs.

RE: Who should the Big Sky try to get for twelve.
I would never be for expelling any member of any conference. If Northern Colorado leaves for The Summit to rejoin their old North Central Conference rivals, or if Sacramento State leaves for the Big West or WAC, then I say stay at ten. Otherwise, I think the conference should look to any one of the Colorado schools in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference to pair with UNC or maybe Dixie State to go with Southern Utah. The latter would turn UNC and NAU into flying travel partners, but the Big Sky would get a decent addition.

I'm not sure what their attendance is like but they seem to have done fair to me. They played in the NCAA Tournament for example.
