Yes, the WAC could be a more condensed conference without Chicago State but the same could be said if the WAC didn't have Seattle U. either. However, for the foreseeable future both schools are... will be... and have been full WAC members.

Yup. The Texas noobs are making membership edicts and they aren't even membership yet. Smh.

More like two loudmouths.

The new WAC will definitely be a better basketball conference then the Sun Belt with these new additions. Chicago State will be in the East Division. Chicago State isn't going to be kicked out. The only way Chicago State is not in the WAC is if they choose to leave it.

Again, all speculation... but I really am trying to share with my Southland brethren how scheduling can be done in a decent enough way to limit travel out of Texas.

West
Cal Baptist
Dixie State
Grand Canyon
New Mexico State
Seattle
Southern Utah
Utah Valley

East *
Abilene Christian
Lamar
Sam Houston State
Stephen F Austin
Tarleton State
UT-RGV

East features one TBA school; could be a D2 team from Texas, a non-football add (not so likely) or end up being New Mexico State if one of the Big Sky schools come over
==

Football - All teams play each other once.

Men's and Women's Basketball - Home-and-homes within divisions; a single game against the teams in the other division (rotating each year home & away). That's 12 divisional games & 7 intra-division games (19 game schedule; you could conceivably add one "intra-divisional rival" to balance things at 10 home/10 away and 20 game schedule

Volleyball/Softball - Divisional schedule only with the addition of one or two "round-ups" allowing intradivisional play (say that all teams converge once in the west and once in the east)

Swimming & Diving / Beach Volleyball / Cross Country / Track & Field / Golf - a single championship event as is the case now

Tennis - no regular season play; end of season tournament based on ITA rankings

Baseball - this is where I am stuck; could you conceivably do home-and-homes within the division? That's 36 games (6 opponents x 3 x 2) in league play and then do a tournament based on divisional seeding/rank? Maybe do "pool play" in the tournament so everyone gets at least three games?

Well, tell those bumpkins you're gonna have to check your Nacogdoches to Beaumont Hwy 69 mentality at the door. You join the WAC so you CAN travel outside of Texas and expand your brand into new markets. SFA playing in Seattle. Sam taking on GCU in Phoenix. Lamar vs. CBU on TV in LA. ACU getting whooped in Chicago. Not only that, your recruiting grounds and pipelines will grow exponentially. The move to the WAC is a visionary one. If you only focus on the dollars, it won't make cents.

Regardless of what conference you're in no brand is getting built or expanded upon unless theres a TV deal. What does the WAC tv deal look like?

Oh, you bobbie cats and your TV deal. We get it, you got a TV deal. Happy for ya bud. Really am. Guaran-dang-tee ya though, the WAC basketball tourney in Vegas will be a made-for-TV event. And that Sunbelt tourney...well, you do have a TV deal.
Cmon IT, he wasn't trying to be a dick about it. This is an an honest question,

Just like professional sports some leagues are ESPN properties, others are FoxSports brands and other league just do their own thing.

The Southland tv deal previously SUCKED. They sold rights to ESPN and they are carried on the EsPn+ app and built a federation of over the air digital secondary channels (ie bunny ear 5.3).

The Big Sky has sports on free apps like Pluto TV.

The Sun Belt has the championship game and a few randos during on TV each year but most is handled through the app. During Covid, the Belt has taken advantage of teams not playing and some other leagues being affiliated with the fox sports properties to highlight their programs.

Because MWC and CUSA are not ESPN properties, their games aren't shown as much on that platform. I find their games on Fox Sports, NFL network, OTA, CBS Sports.... honestly it's a crapshoot.

Money aside, from a fan perspective the Southland tv rights deal with ESPN has been great. We recently moved from Abilene to Virginia. For a $12.95 a month I get a package that includes Disney, Hulu, and ESPN+. The ESPN ap allows me to watch virtually every ACU home game from the comfort of my living room. Before the deal, ACU games were only available via an unreliable subscriber service.

RE: Speculating What Scheduling in a New WAC Would Look Like
From a money perspective, I see why conferences want their product to be able to command a good price. From a fan perspective, streaming has been a god send for fans. I am extremely happy with the FREE and dead simple easy to use WAC Digital Network.

As far as all these WAC wannabe schools who are trying to find a way to never have to leave Texas and to want to decide who’s in the conference—I’d advise staying where you’re at and simply getting rid of the schools you don’t want there, instead of trying to get rid of the schools you don’t want over here.

So how much did they pay you for that endorsement?

RE: Speculating What Scheduling in a New WAC Would Look Like
Im just excited that it looks like the WAC is gonna survive and it looks like some legit D1 schools are joining, not more D2/Junior colleges joining. I'm not knocking the D2 and junior college (UVU) that joined. However, the transition probation period for those schools is a killer for WAC tournament and letting the WAC look legit. I'm also looking forward to the possibilities for the WAC as a FBS football conference. This is just a hope not based on any facts before Posse Galore throws his little hissy fit and then when you disagree with him he goes on a rant what a bad person you are.

Yes, we're bad people. Thought that was established.

FBS is on the table with the clause. Never saw this happening when Tarleton joined last year.

Doesn't surprise me your defending a pinhead. Anyway. Still looking forward to all the changes to the WAC. Its nice to see legit WAC expansion news and not seeing never ending articles by the pundits how GCU is gonna be a national powerhouse because of their fan support and their super star coach who is now suing GCU. How's that going BTW gleadley? Curiously the Phoenix media is very quiet about any negative pub for that story.

Vulpes, I can tell you that I have wasted a good 10 years of my life on CSNbbs and a few years of **** posting on the old wac Scout site......

David is a ******* National Treasure.

Same goes for Nodak, and his crazy belief that WAC FBS would come back. RIP NoDak

Maybe Nodaks belief wasn't so crazy after all.

Your opinion of David St is certainly your opinion.

The crazy thing is that by all accounts, you're a nice, normal guy in person. A productive and respected member of the LC community. What changes when you get behind a keyboard, man?

The constant digs, insults, and "smack talk" might make sense if we were all college kids again, but we're not. Hell, most of us have become the old guys that the college kids make fun of for hanging on to "the glory days". Dude, I got called "old balls" by some kid at an alumni tailgate and I was just barely 30. I can't imagine what I'd be called now, over a decade later.

All that is to say it's okay to drop the schtick. I'm more than happy to have honest, respectful conversations about our teams and fandom. If you're genuinely curious about the lack of coverage on GCU and Majerle, it's probably because because the sports media doesn't really care about GCU.

Someone really called you old balls? Should've told them to stop looking. 30 isn't even old...it can't be.

Its nice to see legit WAC expansion news and not seeing never ending articles by the pundits how GCU is gonna be a national powerhouse because of their fan support and their super star coach who is now suing GCU. How's that going BTW gleadley? Curiously the Phoenix media is very quiet about any negative pub for that story.

The crazy thing is that by all accounts, you're a nice, normal guy in person. A productive and respected member of the LC community. What changes when you get behind a keyboard, man?

The constant digs, insults, and "smack talk" might make sense if we were all college kids again, but we're not. Hell, most of us have become the old guys that the college kids make fun of for hanging on to "the glory days". Dude, I got called "old balls" by some kid at an alumni tailgate and I was just barely 30. I can't imagine what I'd be called now, over a decade later.

All that is to say it's okay to drop the schtick. I'm more than happy to have honest, respectful conversations about our teams and fandom. If you're genuinely curious about the lack of coverage on GCU and Majerle, it's probably because because the sports media doesn't really care about GCU.

You got it bro. Thanks for putting me in my place. Seriously. No more GCU smack talk. Now that Majerle is gone its kinda lost its fun.
