Has nothing to do with Big West.

UC San Diego is a future member of the Big West Conference...Big West member in 2020...

UC San Diego is on a par in enrollment with UC Davis, UC Irvine, & CSU Long Beach (Long Beach St)...all Big West members...

UC San Diego is in the top 5 in enrollment compared to the rest of the BWC...

UC San Diego wants to grow to 40K+ enrollment in the near future...which will make it one of the largest universities in the BWC...

With a record of applications for fall (2019) enrollment feeds into UC San Diego's growth and development...

I grew up in SD and UCSD has always been a destination university for 1) top tier academics, 2) being right on the beach, and 3) being in an awesome city.

BW membership has nothing to do with UCSD being in high demand by college applicants.

As the television networks encounter shrinking subscriber bases and Power Five football conference schools are concerned about potentially smaller TV deals, Farrell said the Big West is well positioned to succeed in an evolving media market.

"The potential decline would affect the Power 5 conferences far more than programs at our level. Right now, we aren't making a lot of money on television," said Farrell. "What the future holds for conferences like ours is much greater exposure on the digital front. The capacity for getting our content out there to the public is far greater today and at far less cost than it's ever been."

To illustrate that point, Farrell pointed out that both UC San Diego and Cal State Bakersfield are required to develop on-campus digital production capabilities to produce ESPN 3-quality content as part of their Big West admittance.

"Hopefully, that's the model that all of our schools will be going to," he said. "They can produce an unlimited number of games digitally that will help coaches with recruiting and allow family and friends to watch from anywhere in the world."

"I'm excited about the digital future of media, whether it is with ESPN, Amazon, Facebook Live or Google," said Farrell. "We have a contract with ESPN to 2023. But 2023 will be here before we know it. And we don't know what the world will look like then. [Digital production] gives us the ability to possibly shop around to other content providers."


Also dropped a line about possible future expansion

--Conference expansion. "We're not in a rush to go to 12 members. We've had division alignments before, and they can lead to some polarization among members. There are really two reasons conferences expand -- for survival or opportunity. Fortunately, we are in a position that we're going to be able to look at any future candidates for membership and ask, 'Does this present an opportunity for us to get better?' "

What isn't clear is if any future candidates can be outside California. Not ruled out though.

Those capabilities are pretty standard for D1 programs. I'm surprised Bako wasn't up to snuff yet.
