Big West commissioner Dennis Farrell said in an interview before the NCAA Tournament, the conference plans to go forward with 11 members.


He must not have received the memo that Cal Poly and UC Davis are leaving. Why would they vote on Bakersfield and UCSD if their departure was so imminent in 2020? Why not just abstain, or simply announce they are out the door?

Commissioner Farrell also said while the expectation is to go forward with 11 members, he's not opposed to a 12th school if it is the right one. They could be within CA or be from a near-by state. You always keep an eye out for an opportunity.

There's no need for an "amicable split" by Cal Poly and UCD. If they want to leave, just say so.
Amazing that six months previous, UCSD was voted down and Bakersfield didn’t even get consideration since the school is considered such a slug, but brings in much more fan support than any Big West school as Bake isn’t uppity. Dennis Farrell six months earlier said it didn’t have a compelling reason to expand, but now he does? Something has changed.

So the Big West suddenly got a major new TV contract because San Diegans willl all be glued to their TVs in excitement over UCSD? 02-13-banana Why didn’t Sacramento St at least get an offer rather than Bake? Sac can actually play in Golden 1 Center now and is close to betting a new on campus arena after discussing it for the past 25 years. Sac St provides a travel partner for UCDavis, so the travel budget would have gone down for the lowly Big West financials. But Sac St may have plans with Cal Poly and UCDavis to skeedaddle too, so the Big West could not get them.

The Big West Presidents must be really abysmal in long term planning as well as in other issues. Those schools wouldn’t voluntarily divide the NCAA pot even further as they need every penny. San Diego St and Boise only got in as they offered big $’s, and in Boise St’s case, annual payments.

Why would Sac play in the Golden 1 Center, when they cannot even fill the Hornet’s Nest? Guess they want more people disguised as empty seats to play in front of.

This is all moot because in 2 more days the Great North debuts.
