RE: Boise St. ready to jump ship to the MWC
If the MWC was to take Boise State in the next few years, wouldn't Sacramento State be in a better position to move up than UC Davis, at least in the short-term? Commissioner Benson should definitely have UC Davis as the next school on his speed dial, for down the road, but a stop-gap might be needed before they are ready to jump again seeing as how they are only now finishing their current transition.

Hawaii / Fresno State
San Jose State / Sacramento State
Nevada / Idaho
Utah State / New Mexico State
Louisiana Tech

... or ...

Fresno State / Nevada
San Jose State / Sacramento State
Idaho / Utah State
New Mexico State / Louisiana Tech

I guess you could look at it as Sacramento State being the stop-gap replacement for Boise State, if they get taken by the MWC, and UC Davis as being the long-term replacement for Louisiana Tech, if they wind up in a more geographically suitable league. The MWC will probably never go to 12 teams because the Gang of Five would not want to lose power so there will always be enough teams to maintain the WAC.

San Jose State / Fresno State
Sacramento State / UC Davis
Nevada / Idaho
Utah State / New Mexico State

It seems logical to me, looking at it from the outside, that this should be the way to go. All my instincts tell me that the Big East will only end up taking one team from CUSA so there will not be any major realignment shockwaves like so many people enjoy predicting. I only foresee a tweak here and a tweak there for several leagues. But only time will tell if I am presciently correct or seriously mistaken on this.
