WSU is “on the clock” as discussed in this thread. If you read the link to the article that I provided in post #261, Liberty’s decision was greatly influenced by the B12 and possible realignment. WSU is in a FBS conference that will likely be impacted by either future B12 expansion or reconstruction. Consequently, it doesn’t have time to wait and see “if the Shocks win big in AAC basketball every year” to at least start a FCS program. You also have to factor in the 2 year transition period from FCS to FBS. You wanted a way to fast-track an upstart football program to FBS and now you have an example. WSU would greatly increase its chances of remaining with most of the schools in this conference when the B12 comes here for building material if Shocker football exists in some form—preferably at the FBS level….

Is it still a 2 year transition period if going from no football to FBS? Has that even ever happened?

WSU is "screwed" when the B12 comes here for "building materials" if Shocker football doesn't exists in some form—preferably at the FBS level….

Very good questions.... UCONN got an invite, so I don't even know if a school can go from nothing to FBS without an invite. I'll rep the first person +2 that provides the "correct" answers for both questions and links for the answers....

No answers yet… and we have all these knowledgeable board members. I’ll up the ante: I'll rep the first person +2 that provides the "correct" answers and +2 for links to the answers. In order for me to easily rep the correct answers with links, please place the answers in one post and “quote” the answers with the links in another post.
