Is Cal Poly a CSU school? Aren't they their own system?

All the Cal Poly locations are part of the CSU System.

This could be the end of the WAC if it’s Bakersfield.

If it's Sacramento, maybe you see Big West football return at the FCS level with the three CA schools and - Portland State? NAU? Eastern Washington? At least one of those would have to join as full members.
The only way I could see this working is Northern Arizona and Southern Utah headed to the WAC, and then Sacramento State and Portland State joining the Big West. Even then it’s a bit goofy with Portland State being a huge outlier in the Big West.

It would make more sense for the Big West to admit CSU Sacramento, UC San Diego, and Azusa Pacific if it wanted to sponsor FCS football. NAU and SUU would then be the affiliates from the WAC.

PSU won't be able to pay the subsidies the Big West had for non-Cali schools.

Which is why Sac State is not likely joining.

there's no way Sac State leaves the Big Sky unless they either drop football, can remain a fb-only member, or get assurances from the Big West it will sponsor football itself. Option #3 seemed the most likely and even then, would require one more member from outside CA.

Agreed. Anything's possible, but there doesn't seem to be a good reason for Sacramento to leave the Big Sky so long as they're going to keep football. Affiliates can get dropped, best to stay a full member and not worry about it.

No it's just UCSD. And good for them.

WAC has to focus on APU, pure and simple.

There was a story several years ago that UCDavis received a major gift for expanding their stadium. Last year, this opinion piece came out too. Have little doubt that UC Davis has an FBS goal, and why wait 15 more years?

As a UCSD alum, this is great news. UCSD is one of the top academic schools in the nation but has very little school spirit or identity. Going to D1 will help with this aspect.
