RE: G6 FBS Conferences
The WAC may have been grandfathered in as a FBS conference. But with the schools they have right now IA is far from even a pipe dream. The biggest athletic budget in the new WAC (not New Mexico State) is Sam Houston State at 19.2 million dollars. Only ULM at 16.7 has a lower athletic budget in IA.

I doubt any of us ever sees the WAC as a IA conference again.

I had to read that twice. At first I thought you were saying NMSU had a lower budget than Sam Houston.

The 6th conference. And to a lesser extent CUSA, MWC, MAC and the AAC. (fewer mouths to feed)

But everybody's self interest will keep this from happening.

If, by the 6th conference, you mean the 10 schools that were previously members of another G5 conference, they could only benefit at the expense of the other five conferences. And while those five conferences will have fewer mouths to feed, they will all have less money to feed them with. Nothing suggests that any individual school will get more money, and somebody will have to pay for the cost of having one more conference administration to fund.

Your last sentence says it all: this is in nobody's self interest. That's why it won't happen.
