Agreed. I take the hard look at UIW as WTAM not interested in the WAC at this time. Not really understanding the need of the WAC to add another FB immediately. WAC needs to take the time to find the best fit.

The WAC does have some time. But the number of candidates within the footprint are few (you can count them on one hand). So why should the WAC wait if their objective is to get to FBS status by 2030?

Because if they really think they can go FBS then they need to take the right school and UIW doesnt look like theyre capable of FBS. Of course people like to throw the word potential out there for a lot of schools, but to me if a school hasnt capitalized on their potential by now then its not gonna happen. I could potentially win the lotto right?

Not if you don’t buy a ticket.

FBS? LOL.

No this add is to shore up the eastern side of the conference. Whoever is the realistic best fit should be targeted. WTAM seems to be the consensus. If WTAM is not interested, is there urgency to find another body? I don't see why there is, especially with 2 FB members still transitioning.

Who says WTA&M is not interested? From what I’ve seen, they just don’t want to be the ones who kill the Lone Star Conference. Which is admirable.

The WAC's actions are indicating they are not interested, of course it could be a ploy to force WTAM (or another desired D2 addition) hand. WTAM worrying about what happens to the LSC after they leave is a waste of energy on their part. You either want D1 or you don't.

It would be very costly to go from D2 to D1. If I were a college president, I would make sure that that is the best choice for my school. Football isn't the only sport sponsored, in fact there are 16 others to be considered. Besides rivalries, and travel, and what the student population want, and what the alumni think.
