My advice... Do not do it.

College Football, outside the "Power" Conferences, is an endangered species. For most of us, it will not be tenable over the next decade...either we will move down or have to disband it.

If Wichita State wastes money trying to restart football, administrators should be investigated for fiscal malfeasance.

Besides which, the State of Kansas, thanks to your brilliant Governor, is in such financial straits that there is no more money for such extravagance.

Never happen. There's nowhere else for Kansas to go. Basketball alone won't earn them a Big 10 invite, and their football is Division 2 abysmal. They're not even marginally a fit for any other conference.

When the Big 12 dies, so will the University of Kansas's athletics.

WSU is explicitly a non-football member of the AAC. It was a condition of joining the AAC. Presidents do not want WSU to use the AAC as a springboard for a football program because it would make WSU a very valuable SEC or Big 12 candidate in a matter of a few years.

You're right. The SEC is a stretch. The football program would have to be built right, and fast. WSU has some high profile alums, including bill parcells and mike McCarthy[edit: Not mike, got WSU confused with the chiefs], but I would be surprised if either got involved.

But the Big 12 could be possible.

I strongly disagree with you:

Two sources have told The World-Herald that the Big Ten has done prior 'homework' on Oklahoma, Kansas and Vanderbilt among other schools who might some day be expansion targets. The Big 12 grant-of-rights deal didn’t stop a look-see for OU and KU.”

WSU is welcome to start FCS football and put it in the MVFC since the AAC only sponsors FBS football...other than that, no thanks, we're good here.

RE: Football at WSU
The only reason Wichita was even thinking about football in the first place was because they thought it would be a requirement to get into a better hoops league. Well, that problem got resolved without spending one thin dime on football, so they're certainly not going to fool with it now. Plus as others have said, AAC invite didn't include football, anyway. So at this point, there really isn't anyone interested in pursuing the idea.

I suppose that if the Koch Bros. drop $500m in John Bardo's lap and say "We want a football team. Make it happen." then yeah everyone would probably reevaluate the situation. Until then...
